Problem with Pi not powering up when newly completed RGB Negative 16x2 LCD+Keyboard kit for Raspberry Pi is connected.
I just finished building my Adafruit negative RBG display for the Raspberry Pi. The instructions were very simple to follow and the final result looks great but, when I connect the display board to the Raspberry Pi and apply power I get no power indicators on the Pi and it will not boot. If I disconnect the display board the Pi boots fine. I am using a 2.5 amp powersupply connected to the Pi with the Micro USB connector. I used a socket to mount the i2c control chip so I removed it to see if I received a different result but the issue was the same, no power indicators on the Pi when the power adaptor was connected. What can I do to trouble shoot my work?
