N8 Nes everdrive green screen..
« on: August 01, 2014, 11:15 PM »
I have bought everdrive N8 for NES. Trying to start it on retron console (3 in 1 - sega nes snes).
But I see only GREEN SCREEN...what should I do? Or maybe there is something I do wrong?

Not all clones will work. Try using a real NES or Famicom susytem first to s make sure your cart is fine

Green screen even if you turn on the system without sd card?

I'll try it on original NES, friend of mine will give it to me tomorrow..

What actually green screen means?
What sights can tell me that my cartridge is broken? If I see green light so it means it works?

It means that cart hangs somewhere during initialization. If you turn on the system without sd card, and cart can show bootloader screen, then you can run self test (push a+b+select+start)
If your cart does not boot on original nes even without sd card, then something is broken

There's the source of your problem right there! You're playing in a shitty clone console that doesn't work with everdrives. These clones use an emulator to run game carts. Everdrives bring up a menu that can't be emulated. Your cart probably works perfectly. Use a REAL NES/Famicom.
Owned Everdrives: Everdrive MD, Mega Everdrive, Everdrive N8, Everdrive GB X5, Turbo Everdrive, Super Everdrive, Everdrive GBA

Misc Flashcarts: SD2SNES

My retron3 works fine with edn8, but those clones changes their hardware so often...

All of the Retrons besides the 5 are just bog-standard NOAC machines, only the 5 is an emulator.

Google sent me here.

I have a Everdrive N8 V1.1 batch 14.12.12.
It used to work fine. Lately i tried to use it but it shows a green screen for about 2 sec (blinking red led) an after that some scrambled garbage on the screen.

Edit: I use it on a Famicom!
Is there some sort of debugging interface if i add the missing (FTDI 232 RL)? IC and a USB-Port? (I have them sitting around).
how can i reanimate my everdrive?

I've been playing my everdive n8 on my Fc mobile 2 and it has been working fine until recently I got the green screen. I was messing with it until I took the batteries out and hooked it up to the power supply that came wit the Fc Mobile 2 and now its working fine again. So I figured it must be the batteries were running low and I guess I was right. I had been using the same batteries since January of this year when I got the fc mobile for my b-day lol I guess I need new batteries hahaha
