Pi Zero W Handheld Display Not Working
Slartibartfast89 last edited by
I am very new to all of this. I recently bought a pi zero w and a Gamepi20, because I wanted a nice introductory project. However, after formatting my SanDisk Ultra 128 GB sd card with retropie version 4.6 (0/1 version) using etcher, and putting the zero W into the Gamepi20, the display does not work. I soldered the headerpins myself, but I believe there is a good connection since the display backlight turns on and the pi zero flickers green at first and then becomes solid green after some time, indicating it is getting power off the Gamepi20's power source. I plugged the sd card into a raspberry pi 3 B I was gifted, displayed it on the tv, and everything loads! Any help getting this screen to work on the Gamepi20 would be greatly appreciated!

I also have already viewed these threads
In that last link, the moderator ‘mitu’ gave some suggestions for changing the Recalbox code however I am using Retropi, not Recallbox.
Thank you to anyone who is willing to help! (I am such a beginner, so please try to dumb down replies so a noob can understand)
