I bought a Fates with a loose power socket (usb c), but otherwise working great. Hasn’t been a huge issue, but not ideal when it switches off in the middle of a session because I bump into the cable!
I was thinking of reflowing it to see if that helps. I just wanted to check here if there is anything to be especially careful with when opening/soldering, as I am totally unfamiliar with this build Grateful for any advice!
Hey - I asked the mods to move this to the Fates thread to keep support over here.
Can you give me a rundown of what you did? (with as much detail as possible)
What version were you previously running? What disk image did you flash from? Did you update after that?
on Backups - The dust folder is mostly what you’d need to backup for norns. For ORAC, there’s other stuff, but that’s probably questions for the Sidekick/Orac thread or the norns mother threads (since they are all a bit different)
Updated from 200218 using the update in the drop down. Everything went as expected but I’m standing still on the shutting down… screen. It’s been there for about 5 minutes. Does it power off on its own or are we safe to power off on this screen?
Trying to get a keyboard to work with Orca, I am using what I have and so far no luck. I have a wireless logitech that hangs the system and an older (2007) Mac keyboard. The Mac board shows up in the HID menu just fine and I can reassign it in the four HID positions, but I don’t get anything when I type in Orca. I’m not opposed to trying to order another keyboard but I feel like the Mac board is close and maybe I’m missing something…?? Help appreciated!
Just curious if anybody in this topic has an experience with this, I’ve continued to have odd noise for issues with RPi 4’s in FATES. Nothing with RPi 3+ tho. I have tried 2 FATES boards and two Rpi 4’s. I’m using the 4GB RAM RPi 4. The noise floor is best found when using Cheat Codes because when opening the program, it is tripling the sound in buffer. Very interesting indeed. I plan to just swap everything to RPi 3+‘s but was just wondering if anybody else experienced this.
I’ve got an old white emac keyboard that I use with my Fates. It shows up as three devices in the menu with the same name , and you have to pick the right one of the three for it to work. I think the extra devices might be the internal USB hub?
Did you manage to sort it out?
I looked into mine today, cleaned and reflowed the 3rd encoder joints just in case, also looked for shorts but no luck so far.
It’s still completely unusable , I’ll try to order another one (post-coronavirus crisis as I can’t receive any parcel right now) and replace it.
I wonder though if it could come from somewhere else like a cold joint on another component. @okyeron can you give us an insight about somewhere/something to look on the board related to the 3rd encoder ? Thanks
Hi, yes! Actually I desoldered the 4th encoder to replace the third one and it’s working pretty fine since then. I assume my case was a defect encoder.
Now I have a hole to be filled once I get another encoder hehe
