Argh! (or should that be Arrrrr?!)
My son and I are 99% the way through our epic Picade build. We have been enjoying Matt’s video (well done, Matt) but now, at the final moment, disaster has struck. We’ve looked high, we’ve looked low, but we cannot find the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the display driver board. It’s quite possible the dog ate it.
Logic dicates (sigh) that we order a new one. But before I do the order, I thought I’d ask a really silly question: is this part actually necessary? What is the role of the keypad? Won’t I be using a USB keyboard to do the software config, etc? Many thanks for your kind assistance. This is our first Picade and our first Pi project.
