Screen prob? Need advice, please.

Post by Faelun » Wed Jul 01, 2020 4:04 am

I recently purchased the black edition odroid advance and only started actually putting it together a few hours ago. It ran fine and boy do I love it, but
after playing a few games, I noticed some slight light bleed. I looked up a video on how to remedy it and followed it carefully. Once I put everything back together though,
the screen just stays blank. It lights up but nothing happens. Sometimes the screen will flash when I pressed a button.

So, I removed the sd card to see if I would get the 'Insert SD Card' message and rule out any lcd damage. However, the screen remains the same. >.<
I read that 'flashing' the firmware may fix this but I've no experience in this area. I tried ordering another screen but they informed me that they were out of stock.

So, what do you guys think? LCD damage or should I try this 'flashing' thing? I have to order a Male to male usb to hook my odroid up to my computer though.

Moved from XU4 sub-forum.

Did you fully insert the LCD flat cable?

I should also mention that, at this point in time, I've spent 70$ (not including the odroid) in an attempt to get this thing running smoothly. Granted, again, 24 of that was my own stupidity but I could have easily just bought another or even... dare I say it... an rk2020. >.>

If you mean "flashing thing" is updating recovery image, it's not needed to check LCD issue.
In a SPI flash of OGA-BE, there is already the latest version of recovery image.

Without a SD card attached, if all LEDs are ON after OGA-BE turns on, then recovery image from spi flash is normal.
( Red CHG LED / Blue ALIVE LED / Red PWR LED )
