Upside down video output

Is it possible to change the orientation of the video output on the raspberry pi?

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

I don't need help anymore. I bought the adafruit raspberry pi kit and the pre-assembled pi cobbler was put together backwards. All of my circuits work now.

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

I found the problem. The adafruit GPIO cable was manufactured backwards. I am going to need to order a new one because it will not fit in my case anymore with the cable backwards.

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

The power supply ground isn't connected to the RPi ground. How would I connect it?

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

I am also using a momentary tact and a 10kohm resistor. The same thing happens.

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

I am using ground from an old power supply instead.

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

At first, I thought that I was just wiring the circuit wrong, so I looked at this tutoriol on the adafruit website only to find that the LED was wired exactly right.

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

Also, when I measure the voltage of some GPIO pins, the value is 5v even if the pin is low.

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

Also, when I try to receive inputs, the pi will say that sometimes the pin is high with nothing connected to it. I have to use a different ground because when I use pin 6 as ground, pin 1 gives me 0.78v, but my multi-meter works because TP1 and TP2 give me a perfect 5v, along with pin 2

Re: Raspberry pi warranty

pin 1 gives me 1.7v instead of 3.3v, so that pretty much makes the GPIO unusable.

Raspberry pi warranty

The GPIO pins are not working on my pi. I was wondering if I could get it exchanged for a new one and if so, how would I do it?

Re: Having promlems with a Pi?

The GPIO pins on my pi do not work. Pin 1 gives me 1.7v instaed of 3.3v. Pin 2 gives me the correct value. Some GPIO pins give me 5v no matter what state they are in ( high or low ) and the other GPIO pins give me 1.7v no matter what state they are in. Also, when used as inputs, the pins sometimes t...

Re: Help, GPIO is NOT WORKING!!!!

I tested every gpio pin and found that the 3.3v line gives 1.8v instead and some gpio pins provide 5v and some provide 1.8v. I don't know what to do. Does anyone know what is wrong with my pi? :?:

Re: Help, GPIO is NOT WORKING!!!!

Pin 1 measures 0.01v and pin 2 measures at 0.72v. TP1 and TP2 measure 4.99-5.01v, so I know that my multi-meter is working. Any Ideas? :?
EDIT:
I tryed again using TP1 as ground and the pins gave me the correct voltages. There must be something wrong with pin 6. :o

Re: Help, GPIO is NOT WORKING!!!!

Yes, the pin is set up for an output

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/env python
import RPi.GPIO as gpio, time
gpio.setmode(gpio.BCM)
gpio.cleanup()
gpio.setup(4, gpio.OUT)
while True:
	print("Sending Power To LED!!")
	gpio.output(4, True)
	time.sleep(3)
	print("Turning Off LED!!")
	gpio.output(4, False)
	time.sleep(4)

Help, GPIO is NOT WORKING!!!!

I installed the GPIO module and python-dev, but the GPIO pins can only recive inputs :cry: . Any ideas? Also, mv multi-meter says that the GPIO pins are producing outputs of 3.7v. My power supply is 5v at 1 amp and I have not overclocked my pi.
