Re: screen flicker when holding/playing Raspiboy

It turns out every problem I had with my Raspiboy is a result of the shells not being able to close fully, because I only have 3 working screws.... :shock: My dpad had problem registering 'left' precisely.

hi people, I've just got mine. After some struggle closing the casing properly I finally got it to work. However I realised the screen starts to flicker once I hold it up. When it is rested on the desk the screen stays okay. It becomes very frustrating to use it at all because the screen flickers sp...
