Hi Réna,

Here are a couple pictures to show the connections. They seem good to me. It seems that the SD card is in as far as possible. Also, yes, the SD card works on my computer. I can move files onto it.

Only the power switch on the bottom left disconnects the power completely. The bottom left button and remote just turn off the screen.

I hope that helps!

Thanks,
Réna

Andrew,

Oh no! Sorry this sat for a while. Have you been able to get rid of the glitches? Do the .tsv videos still play just fine?

Let me know!

Thanks,
Réna

Hiya,

First thing I would check - is the SD Card fully inserted? It hangs out a bit, but it does need pushed in all the way to the connector. The boards should also be flatly connected with the tan 32-pin connector between the TinyZero and SD Shield.

When you connect the SD card and open it on just your computer, I assume that works just fine? Can you drop files onto it? Make sure to safely eject it when you unplug it - some data corruption could cause issues when trying to read the info from the card.

Let me know if that helps!

Cheers,
Réna

Hello! I'm having some trouble with reading an SD card. I have a TinyZero with a MicroSD TinyShield on top. I got my SD card here: https://tinycircuits.com/products/microsd-card-and-adapter-8gb. I'm following the tutorial here: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Memory/MicroSD_TinyShield_Tutorial/. I've formatted the SD card using the prescribed SD formatter (FAT32), and I downloaded the zip that contains the CardInfo sketch that uses chipSelect = 10 and uses SerialUSB. Unfortunately, when run the SD card fails to initialize, and it outputs:

Initializing SD card...initialization failed. Things to check:
* is a card inserted?
* is your wiring correct?
* did you change the chipSelect pin to match your shield or module?

I've scoured the internet in an attempt to find a solution, but nothing I've tried has worked.

Any advice would be great!

Question....does either the remote control or OLED push button actually turn power OFF; i.e., no battery power to the circuitry...or...does this simply blank the display as in display.off()

John,

Yes, that's right. That's the software we load on the TinyScreen+ boards. I believe it may have one extra setting for changing the bottom left button to a channel down button instead of a power button, so it has one more tiny feature than the stock firmware.

Cheers,
Réna

I'm glad you were able to sort out the solution (or maybe it sorted itself out?  ;D)

Something to watch out for with the Wireling system that happens rarely - the pins on the inside of the connector on the Wirelings or the Wireling Adapter Shield can have the pins bent when the wires are plugged in at an angle. It's always a pin furthermost right or left, so it could be either the GND or INT pin that isn't connected when this happens.

If this happens - you can straighten out the pin carefully with some thin tweezers and some magnification (or good eyes)

Is this the Tiny TV software that's loaded onto the OLED board??
