[SOLVED] Screen stopped working

my MAKERbuino worked fine for about an hour, but after shutting down and turning on again nothing happens (no sound, nothing on the screen).
The back light is functional, the battery is charged.

Additional info: I had to solder the battery cables directly to the PCB, because the plastic port got damaged

Pictures below:

Hi @Kamil_Trzebuniak, thank you for supporting MAKERbuino and welcome to the forum.

When you interrupt the loading process, the console’s memory will be blank so you have to do a hard reset like this:

  1. insert the SD card
  2. turn the console OFF
  3. hold the C button
  4. turn the console ON
  5. release the C button
  6. wait for 30 seconds
    The SD card loader menu should appear.

This was also mentioned in build guide’s chapter #4 (under the yellow section marked “IMPORTANT”)

Keep us updated on your progress!

Thank you very much, that helped! Sorry to bother with something that trivial, will remember to check it in the future.
