Adabox 005 help please

by thompsman on Fri Sep 29, 2017 2:02 pm

Hi,

I put together the retro gaming system in the adabox 005. It works, but everytime I use it, after several minutes the screen goes black and I have to turn off power and turn it back on to get it working again. I am using the power supply that was provided. Any suggestions?

P.S. I am really hopeful that the next adabox 006 will include the google AIY.

Thanks,

Bill

Does the screen shut off while you're playing, or after the RasPi has been idle for a while?

Thanks for the reply. The screen blacked out during play. I now believe that it was the HDMI cable coming loose.

Thanks again.
