Raspberry Pi down!

If you zoom in on your RasPi pics, you’ll see a lot of the header pins lack solder and the solder that's there, looks to be mostly on header pins, not on both the pins and the holes on the PCB. Get the iron good and hot ( 320 C / 610 F ) and add some more solder to each one.

Here's a pic of mine. They should look like this.

THANK YOU STEVE!!! Success on my end! I ended up cleaning up all joints and they look much better now - as well as being functional.

So I guess my old HMB was still good, it was just bad connection to the RasPi due to my bad solder job. Oh well, at least I now have a working LCD screen!

Thanks again Steve for all your help!
