Re: The Pawn Demo

I tried as you stated, with all on a folder or directly in the root. Unfortunately the result is anyway
a corrupted text area and a quasi all black screen, a bit pixel garbled. Please refer to FB thread for an image.
Thanks for the Avatar... 🙂

Re: Vin input capacitor

@ Andy P - Thanks ☺️ Your welcome. If it's given you a little understanding then it was worth it. Although I have done a little experimenting on this, It is not me who deserves the credit. It goes to Pokemon and anyone else involved for finding it. So I see lots of different capacitor values listed...

Re: Vin input capacitor

I'm a bit clumsy at soldering so I wonder if I can solder the elco on power socket contacts, as suggested in the thread of Pokemon. And if the answer is yes, exactly how. Thanks in advance.

From the data sheet :

This capacitor should be located close to the IC using short leads.
