White streaks in screen before totally blank screen while playing

Unread post by RubberKaiju » Mon Jun 10, 2019 6:54 am

I built my Odroid Go yesterday, and it played perfectly fine for about 40 mins before this issue arose.
When i do the reset (menu +power button) it fixes the issue for about 5 mins of playtime before this happens again. When the screen goes blank sound continues and I can still “play”. This has happened while playing both a gameboy color game and an NES title.
I readjusted the LCD connection, I don’t think that’s the problem. Should I do a firmware update? I’m not super tech savvy and a little afraid to take that on. Could it be an issue with LCD itself? Thank you so much for the help!! I was so excited about my ODroid Go and this is quite the bummer.

This indicates a hardware issue. The first thing to check is the LCD cable as mentioned. However, it could be a problem in the LCD display itself. It is also possible the issue is the PSRAM that holds the framebuffer inside the ESP32 module.
