My N8(non pro) suddenly stopped working
« on: August 04, 2020, 12:28 AM »
Hey everyone  :)

So I received my cartridge today, which was working fine with my NES top loader for about 15 minutes.
I left the room for a few minutes and came back where I left (to the everdrive menu), and it suddenly kinda freezed. I could move the cursor between the EDFC and my NES roms file, but couldn't enter them. It completly freezed after a while.

Since then, everytime I turn on the console, I first get a green screen for a few seconds, then it randomly turns to blue, purple etc.. and keep doing it everytime I hit reset.

I tried differents OS, and I formated twice my SD card (both the quick way and normal way)

Any clue?

Today I also tried with another sd card, still no luck.

When I turn on the console with the everdrive without sd card, it says that the sd card initialization failed, so it can read the cartridge properly.
I also tried the pushing reset several times thing.

Any idea what made it stopped working? It was working just fine and suddenly stopped...

So the grey then random colors issue kinda sounds like what I had on my frontloader when the N8 was set to the wrong region, but pressing reset a bunch should change that

I did the reset thing again as shown in the video from youtube, still no luck...

It goes from green for a few seconds, then it turns blue or purple (or black occasionaly), and it change everytime I press reset.

Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the everdrive and cleaning the pin connector on the system?

My NES reads the cartridge perfectly, as when I don't insert a SD card, I get a message from the Everdrive saying that the SD card initialization failed.

It seems that the problem is coming from elsewhere... What I don't get is that it worked on the first try, and then stopped working without changing anything to the SD card.
