ok after some work, i have loaded 7F with the latest SD package.
when battery installed, loud tone, then "focus path temperature critical". the i can ignite, has smooth swing, eveything seems working except for one thing...
NOTHING to the blade. i have KR pixel stick v1, LED number set to 264.
i even have a saberbay pixel to HB LED adapter i tried, still NOTHING.
tried FW backdating to 5I.
should i keep rolling back to older firmware? i am trying to watch the logs when i boot with RICE, but that wont connect until i have the saber turned on.
i feel this problem is way over my head with little to no experience with this board.
i want to get it running but might need help from an experienced sabersmith.
**OK! i found the software issue!
for some reason, i saw the config file was not named "config.txt" so i added ".txt" not realizing its because newer windos PC hide the file type!
So i took that off so it just says "config" and NO MORE BEEPING!
However, i still have nothing to string LED.
i swpped the HB LED conversion blade, and IT WORKS!!!
So! i feel i have some work to do figuring out the problem with my KR pxelstick V1 that i made myself with all parts from TCSS.
could be an assembly error, even though i followed Khal's instructions on his youtube tutorial.
Back to the drawing/soldering board!!!!
***OK! finally decided everything was as it should be, with only one remaining mystery... i popped the pixel connector on the blade, and sure enough, not one but TWO failed solder connections!!! My theory is, i was a bit rough putting a peice of scrap 1" blade on the end of my 7/8" pixel blade.
anyway, 2 minutes of resoldering, and BAM!!!!
WORKS LIKE A CHAMP!!!!
I was so happy and proud, i nearly shed a tear. truly experienced that moment luke caught his ROTJ saber on the skif, ignited it and smiled for a sec.
but i smiled for more than a second.
Merci Beaucoup Erv!!!!!
