im working on this problem since Days and i have no idea how to fix it.
Everything is working just fine on my 16:9 Display. Ive build an arcade Controller which also works perfectly.
Now i want to build a little Desktop arcade cabinet with a 17″ 4:3 Display.
All of the sudden the screen goes black (like it lost input) when i load snes games. I only encounter this issue with snes games.
its connectet via HDMI to DVI.
thanks for this Forum (helped me a lot)

what hdmi_mode are you running on?
power off the Pi, take out the memory card and load it on your computer.
find the config.txt and locate the hdmi_mode setting and find one that works for your monitor?rixsParticipant11/21/2014 at 11:43Post count: 5
thanks for the quick answer proxcell.
i tried various hdmi_modes
As i said, the monitor works fine until i load up a snes game.
Then it immediatly turns black.

it seems like the 4:3 games are working correctly, only if a game is in 16:9 ratio, the screen turns black.
atm output is on auto detect. if is set the correct hdmi_group=2 and hdmi_mode=16 for the monitor, NOTHING is showing up.
on auto detect it works fine until i load a snes 16:9 game.

What display resolutions does the monitor support? And are you using pisnes or the retroarch/libretro core (check es_systems.cfg)rixsParticipant11/22/2014 at 13:37Post count: 5
the native resolutions is 1280×1024 which is hdmi_mode=35. This doesnt do the trick though.

Try changing runcommand.sh 4 to runcommand.sh 2 in the SNES section of es_systems.cfg (reboot for changes to take effect)rixsParticipant11/23/2014 at 10:23Post count: 5
You sir, are awesome. it works now, thanks a lot!
Could you explain what the change on runcommand did though?
cheers!trimmtrabbParticipant11/23/2014 at 11:40Post count: 480
Glad you sorted it :-) The runcommand script changes the resolution when an emulator is started, more info here: https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/master/supplementary/runcommand.sh
