I am new to the Picade. I just built a new 2019 8" version. Using a raspberry pi 4 2gb Installation went fine. I’ve dug through the forms for my problem, but I haven’t found anyone with a similar issue. Here goes:
I had a toshiba 4gb card to test the system. card flash went fine.
installed the card - system booted up with text down the full screen, retropie logo and then controller configurator.
I changed the location to the US to get the keyboard to work (wired xbox controller works in the pi too) and i used a network cable for internet.
F4 - Got into the command prompt and typed the code to get the hat drive to install.
that ran fine and i got the following screen:
i rebooted, and that’s where the oddities begin. After reboot, i get the rainbow colored rectangle splash screen and then a series of text, but now the text only is displayed on the upper half of the screen - nothing below. and then the screen goes black. I also tried plugging it into another screen (TV) and get the same pattern there. PImoni led is on after the flash.
I re-flashed drive again. same process. same results.
I tried a 128gb micro sd I had around, but i get the ‘no signal’ on the screen with that one.
i can play all the retropie that i want with the xbox controller - it’s when i try to get the hat going that something is fishy. Ive tried the joystick connector both ways even though i know i have it the right way based on the picade tutorial.
Any ideas what’s going on? I can send more screen shots if that helps. I have an official raspberry pi 4b and an offical usb-c charger from raspberry pi. it’s plugged into the USB-C on the Picade hat.
