Screen Dark... Recommendations?
Posted 21 May 2012 - 10:35 PM
Screen is dark and doesn't seem to be receiving the juice for backlighting. When I go into options and turn the brightness all the way up the screen goes black, as in off. As battery drains screen will slowly go totally dark. As caanoo is left on screen will flicker slightly between dark and really dark before settling on really dark.
What I've tried:
Using a different screen - same issue (something with the board and not the screen)
Using both screens on the other caanoo - no issue (confirmed it's not the screens)
Not using an extension cable on dark caanoo - same issue (not the cable)
Tried both batteries - same issue (not the battery)
Reflashed firmware to 1.6.1 - same issue (not the software)
So I'm pretty much left with a hardware issue. I can't see any issues with the zif ffc receptacle and I can't find broken traces or solder joints.
I'm open to anything, and if anybody has a pinout or can help zero me in on a part of the board to be inspecting really carefully I'd appreciate it!

I assume you've tried the obvious thing and have adjusted the brightness in the Caanoo setting menu
Yup. Wish it had been that simple.

Akabei, I'll be giving these guys a call and see what we can work out. Thanks!
