Pimoroni Display Driver Board for Picade Kit

by retiredwizard on Wed May 27, 2020 6:02 pm

Hello, I purchased a Pimoroni Picade Cabinet Kit from Adafruit and have been enjoying it a great deal. Unfortunately, I was trying to use the display as a stand along HDMI display and plugged a micro usb cable from an apparently faulty 12V to USB 5V converter (car ***too funny, can't use that word :) *** lighter adapter). There was a loud snap and burning smell, I assume the 12V adapter sent the full 12 volts to the Display Driver board. Neither the Display Driver board nor the 12V USB adapter now work at all.

What I am wondering is if I can order the Display Driver board on it's own. I've done some searching on both the Pimoroni and Adafruit website and I've only been able to find it as part of a display kits.

Thanks

I reached out to Pimoroni and it sounds like I can get the part there although I'm not sure yet what's it going to cost to ship it over seas.
