Backlit Pocket
« on: April 21, 2018, 10:05 PM »
Everything works and im using rev.b.  I was just wondering if it's normal that you have to change contrast to read the everdrive menus and then when game loads you have to adjust it again to see game.  You have to  do it every time you go back to menu then back to game.

My original edgb does this as well. With fresh batteries. Also, my pocket has no power led. I think it is normal.

The GBP power supply does not like the combination of flash cart + backlight.

Try adding something like this: https://www.pololu.com/product/2564

I disconnected the 5V-out leg from the regulator when adding it (be sure you keep the -19V intact for LCD operation) but I understand you can also just add this in parallel to the existing 5V supply to take some pressure off it.

The GBP was REALLY made on the brink of its own potential, power-wise...
