GPA White LCD, but HDMI Works
#9
Here's 2 scenarios for when the system boots with a white LCD, but HDMI works fine:

1) The GPA controls work fine. You can navigate the main menu. The ON/OFF POWER button works properly which means that you hold it down until the green light comes on, and then the system boots/runs until you hold it down for about 10seconds and the system will shut down.

This probably means that the FPC ribbon cable has not been properly (or fully) connected/engaged. I will try to make my own video about this, but (in the meantime) check this video.

This link should start at 49 seconds and quickly show how they clip it in.

I know it's a video about a "better" type of connector, but it's just an example.

Make sure that the "shoulders" are both "open/out" and that the ribbon has the "fingers" up. Fully push the ribbon in, and then push both "shoulders" all the way in.

Again, I will probably try to make a video about this (and probably a full build) maybe tomorrow.


2) The GPA controls don't work. On the first boot, the menu asks you to set up a new controller. Also, the ON/OFF POWER button may not work properly.

This probably means that you have used a SD card image from RetroPie instead of a customized one for the Game Pie Advance.
