N8 Pal Problems - Boots to a white screen
« on: May 24, 2013, 01:23 AM »
Finally got my Pal Everdrive-N8 from retrogate today.

The cart will only boot to a white screen. No menu or anything.

I know the console is fine. As soon as I insert a Pal game cart it starts fine.
The console had a new 72pin fitted last year.

I also have a US Nes and after hitting reset several times the CIC chip fixes. It goes from blinking white screen and led on the console to solid led and white screen just like the PAL nes.
So the CIC setting part is working.

I also have the Snes everdrive and i am using the same sd card that works fine on that. This was to eliminate any possible SD card issues. Also just tried another SD card after formatting it with SDformatter 3.1.

I have all the OS files in the exact locations as per disk_setup.gif.

Please help.

I think there is no any possible reasons except like contacts problems. At least, cart must show error message, even without sd card

Thanks for the reply.

I have tested in 2 consoles. Just a white screen.

What should I do?

Please advise.

Looking at your picture, I notice that you have not plugged the composite video cable (yellow). It's possible you are just using the white audio cable instead since the NES is mono but it's possible that you made a mistake connecting it and the tv is being fed an audio signal in the video-in.
