Well, that eliminates the PI for sure... I´m suspecting your antique TV...Pablo_LG wrote:I have tried all the above, tested it with different cables, different screens and a second raspberry pi 3 and i get the same result each time.
Try another TV...Pablo_LG wrote:I have also tried it with different OS (jessie and retropie) and still get the same problem. It is confusing because i have tried all the steps that most people do to get theirs to work and it still doesn't for me.
Yes, you do want hdmi... in my opinion the designers should not have included composite video on the card (but that´s another story).Pablo_LG wrote:I can only get it to work through hdmi which i don't want.
I suspect it costs nothing, certainly in board space, now that it shares the same socket with the analogue audio out. Surely its helpful for classrooms in third world countries?Yes, you do want hdmi... in my opinion the designers should not have included composite video on the card (but that´s another story).
The only reason for the composite video output is for those cases where there´s an antique TV laying around a kid can get his Raspberry PI working without having to go out and purchase a new LED flat panel...
Can be a wrong cable.Pablo_LG wrote:The screen does turn on however and i get a flickering screen of all colors with a very faint image of part of the desktop and the image is just going wild. Can someone please help me out.
Excellent! Congratulations... this is good news!Pablo_LG wrote:So, i have found a solution to my problem using this link. http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspber ... /?ALLSTEPS
I would want to assume that it is a problem with the cables i was using which is strange since i bought three from different places and all produced the same effect. However, the method is convenient since i will be soldering wire directly to the pi to allow it to fit in a tiny case rather than having connections through the ports.
