Everdrive N8 doesnt load NES Roms
« on: January 25, 2017, 02:50 PM »
Hi there!

Ive got a problem with my Everdrive N8 (72 Pins - NES). Everything works fine about months/years since yesterday. It doesnt load any NES Rom anymore. The Everdrive N8 boots into the menu, i select a rom and load -> BLACK SCREEN. No short "...loading" on the Screen, just a black Screen and nothing happens. All Roms have worked before. Try to use another SD Card or format the old and new SD Card -> No Rom ist loading.

How can I fix that? Please help  :)

It is a clone or just too big SD Card.
I recommend using 4GB SD Card.

No, I didn't get any fix or response.

The SD Card is not too big and has been worked before. It is an original card from krikzz Shop.

Should I sent krikzz a PM for help?

Take a q-tip and some 99% isopropyl alcohol to those pins and get them cleaned up. They look nasty and could be the source of the problem.

Allready cleaned the pins.

It boots to the menu, i can select the game, then it shows up: "loading...." and nothing happens, just a black screen. I think the card is broken  :-\  krikzz please help!

EDIT:

Changed the battery - nothing happens, just a black screen after "loading..." Message  :'(

It can be problem related to system files fragmentation. This problem already discussed on this forum. Also you should try to run cart self diagnostics

What do you mean with system files fragmentation? Can't find it in the forum. The self diagnostic should be okay:



What should I do now?

Fragmentation is an easy fix:
1. Copy everything on your SD card to your computer.
2. Format the SD card using Windows (fat32, with largest allocation unit option).
3. Copy everything back to the card.

The cause of fragmentation is varied, but if you have used the same card for years it can happen randomly. It's exacerbated if you've copied files to/from the card without formatting regularly.

Tested serveral SD Cards (Sandisc, Kingston) again with Fragmentattion, nothing works just the "loading..." and after that  a black screen. The SD Cards worked before so it must be the Everdrive N8.

What should I do now, KRIKzz?

clean the pins multiple times, even to your NES, and take a loot at all the chips to be sure that is conntected with the PCB. and compare it to the Real Everdrive N8 and be sure it is not a Bootleg.

Cleaned the Everdrive N8 Pins and NES Pins several Times, nothing happens. Bought the Everdrive N8 in KRIKzz Store, so it is no bootleg Card. I think the Everdrive N8 is broken  :(
