LCD screen with android, runs fine, screen does not turn back on..?
#1
I was having problems getting the 7" touch screen to work and found out it was the image I was using. So I went and downloaded phoenix card and the image from pine 64 "lcd-version-20160419" and after the first few boots, it works great. Everything is running smooth even though strangely enough phoenix card failed to burn the image about 3 times and on the 4th time, it worked. Well now the problem is that if I let the screen turn off on its own or I hit the little power button I have on the board and leave it for a few seconds, I can't get the screen to turn back on unless I reset the whole unit with the reset button. They are both the buttons you can get from pine64 for like 50 cents each. I don't think it is a poor connection since the buttons work fine unless the screen is off and then it seems like the power button is completely unresponsive. Anyone else having this problem? I just got the playbox case and also have the (official pine64) battery installed.

hi, the difficulty your are experiencing is normal for this unit. In my personal opinion this is a design flaw which most of us have experienced by now.

... the power button short press suspends the pine board (unfortunately also will not awaken it most times once suspended; requires reset or removing power )

The power button long press will bring up the power off dialogue ; the power on button may then be used to power the device back ON. 

Try to avoid the power button short press.  Remember to press and 'hold'.

Alright, sounds good! Thank you for such a quick reply.
