Is there a list of what cables should be included? We’ve arrived at Section 5, step B and cable 7 is a puzzler- it seems to need a 4 pin female rectangular plug at one end and a USB at the other. All I have is 20 breadboard jumpers, 2 HDMI cables and a mini USB to standard USB. Am I missing something, and if so what is it called? Thanks!
The mystery cable you describe is the power cable for the screen. Sounds like you got 2x HDMI instead of 1 power and 1 HDMI. Let the good folks at Piper know - seems like they will be shipping out missing parts next week.
I believe this is the type of cable I’m missing:
Whoops- make that a male USB plug.Can anyone confirm or deny this?
It does look like that except you do want a male USB and instead of a female header, it has a different style plug.
The LCD is readily available, search for at070tn92.
hey guys we will be sending replacement parts in the first week of January if you want to wait.
Here is a new Inventory Checklist - Inventory Checklist
We received two USBs but no HDMI. Maybe they got our kits mixed up!
You should have received 3 cables:
- a long cable with a USB plug and a small White connector at the end (this powers the screen)
- a short USB to micro USB (connect from the battery to the Pi)
- an HDMI to HDMI cable. (connects screen to the Pi)
I’ve sent a message to the piper guys and you should hear from them soon.
Actually you should be able to contact them yourself. See this thread
