    Hardware Screen won't turn on, stripped screw in case

    Oh. Okay then. Thanks for showing me specifically what to look for. After seeing that picture I can confirm that the coil is not loose, but is instead missing. This is likely the problem. I'm guessing I'll have to send it in so that makes my only remaining questions, shipping from the USA about...

    Hardware Screen won't turn on, stripped screw in case

    Okay, update time! I somehow managed to undo the stripped screw. I tried for a miracle and reseated the screen ribbon to no avail. I managed to get the top half open as well. There's no obvious damage to anything, but I've noticed another problem: both the replacement screens and cables are out...

    Hardware Screen won't turn on, stripped screw in case

    So, I dropped my Pandora. Now the screen won't come on. I'd look at the insides, but the screw near the volume knob is stripped and I can't open the case. The LEDs still work so I'm assuming that it's not completely hosed, but I can't get inside to actually check anything. What should I do?

    Release Wing Commander Saga

    Derp >.< I double-checked the firmware after I posted and it turned out I did need to update, but that didn't solve the error. So then I double-checked the pnd and it was smaller than it was supposed to be at 2GB exactly. I'm guessing that's related to the fact that I downloaded it under the...

    Release Wing Commander Saga

    This looks awesome, but I always get errors trying to run it. Error, cannot find Data files or Data PND. You need to get the data of WCSaga or install the Data PND somewhere (missing: hermes_sounds.vp hermes_movies.vp hermes_movies_prologue.vp hermes_modles.vp hermes_maps.vp...

    Port Requests

    Dwarf Fortress remote control, is it a thing? None of the browser things I've seen like dfeverywhere seem to work on Pandora, and I'm pretty sure that the Pandora would explode if asked to run df itself at any decent framerate.

    What Games Have You Finished on the Pandora ?

    The Pandora is being quite helpful in my quest to beat all the Metroid games. Finished so far: Metroid Fusion Metroid: Zero Mission In progress: Metroid Prime: Hunters - though I'm having problems with the controls. It's much better on the Pandora than a PC though. Metroid II - it's...

    Left on dpad broken

    Turns out it was the dirty contact. I have never cleaned a PCB before so I decided to look up the do's and don'ts first so I didn't make any horrible mistakes. I ended up just going over the contact with a microfiber cloth. After a few minutes of cleaning it was working fine. The Pandora is...

    Left on dpad broken

    Okay, was finally able to open it up. There was no obvious dirt. I wasn't 100% sure on what else to look for, but I did notice some black smudge marks on the PCB contact like part of the dpad rubbed off on it or something. I'm really not sure what to do from here. I'm pretty comfortable with...

    Left on dpad broken

    Title says it all. I tested it using the input tester. It feels normal, it just doesn't register. Is there anything I can try that doesn't involve opening the case? I'm currently away from home and have no screwdriver, but intend to check for obstructions when I can. Until then, how would I...

    Release DraStic Nintendo DS emulator

    Firmware and BIOS copied into appdata/DraStic/system, .out no longer reports them as missing, but still no change. I'm also curious about the line  I have no idea what that means, but it looks like an error of some sort.

    Release DraStic Nintendo DS emulator

    Oh? The first post says that I don't and the readme said that as of 2.1.3p they were no longer necessary. I'll grab them and try again, but if they are needed then that information should be fixed. I was under the impression that I didn't need any additional files.

    Release DraStic Nintendo DS emulator

    I'm having a lot of problems with DraStic. I downloaded it, transfered my nds and dsv files from my PC, and nothing works. I first tried Pokemon HeartGold, I get the intro movie sound but the screen is either all black or all white. Button inputs do nothing, and it eventually crashes on its own...
