I’m currently working on a retropie build in an old broken nes chassi. I’ve gotten so far that I’ve got both my Trustmaster controllers working and I’ve been playing a little.
However, the emulationstation won’t start on my TV (LG lcd). The screen gets black after the Emulationstations splashscreen. Works like a charm on my pc monitor. Worth mentioning is that I have played one session on the TV that worked without issues. But after configuring second controller and adding a few more ROMS it doesn’t work anymore.
Tried different powersources from 1A to 2.1A with same results…
Anyone got an idea on what the problem can be?

I am actually having the same problem but in my case it works on a 720p LCD and not on a 1080p LCD. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Forcing HDMI, forcing VGA, changing/trying different screen resolutions, X and Y configuration. The only way I could get 1080p TV to work was to remove PSX/N64 roms. Depending on which settings I try, sometimes I get a frozen blinking ES splash screen and other times I get a black screen that I can launch games from but cannot see what I’m choosing.
I’d really like to find a resolution to this annoying problem.rayaParticipant10/15/2014 at 21:22Post count: 5
Hi there and thanks for answering!
I really got my hopes up after I read your reply and removed all PS and N64 roms. Sadly that did not help…
Guess I got to keep trying stuff.karlossParticipant10/16/2014 at 07:40Post count: 177
I had a similar issue, would work on 17″ monitor, but not on 42″ tv, I have to change my memory split to 256/256 then it started working.
