Issue with OGST N64 LCD screen

Unread postby cainkirisgai » Mon Jul 16, 2018 9:49 pm

Got a N64 OGST kit in and after setting up the colors on the screen were inverted. Sent it back and got a second one at first it seemed like it was a different issue but after trying again today its the same thing colors look inverted if i move the ribbon cable the image gets distorted and snowy.

Can you please unplug and plug the LCD FPC cable?
The black part in the FPCB connector should be pulled first carefully.
And, the white line on the FPCB must be placed near the connector edge something like this.

Also reassemble the IDC 30pin flat cable between XU4 and LCD board.

Yes.
I heard some extra particles in the connector could cause the malfunction of LCD display.

Thank you for the test.

We've shipped over 1,500 console kits but you are the first person who has the LCD issue.
So I thought it could be a simple connection problem.
In that case, the 30pin IDC ribbon cable or XU4 itself could be a root cause since you already received a replacement.
Otherwise, it is very worth to reflash the OGST OS image and configure the LCD output again.

BTW, did you buy it from our web-store directly? or a distributor?

first one was from odroid on amazon the 2nd one was from the odroid site. I sent the whole unit back cables and all so I do not have the same cable as with the first set i had. I will try to flash the image again right now im checking with the updates just to make sure that I didnt miss with ap get update just to be sure if not i will possibly try a new odroid and if that one works i will see about a return on my current one
