FS#9610 - no display visible on 2nd generation ipod

no display visible on 2nd generation ipod

I have installed the following:
ipod1g2g-20081207-english.zip
rockbox-fonts.zip
rockbox-ipod1g2g-3.0.zip

The system boots to a blank screen. I have tried both
contrast:63 and contrast: 44 in config.cfg

I am able to hear the voice speaking the menu selections.

Holding down the stop button for a moment says
‘shutting down’ but the system reboots into the same
condition.

No activity for over 2 years. If this is still an issue with a current version of Rockbox please open a new task, otherwise considering this issue fixed.

Have you also tried a current build at all?

just tried r19360-081207 with the same results.

Does your display work in the OF?

The problem doesn't appear to be build related. Mine is still working fine with R19360-081207. I also removed the bootloader, and re-installed the current bootloader using Rockbox util - the iPod still works fine.

the display works fine with original software. Also I see the apple on boot then it goes to a blank screen.
I've managed to move around the menus some using the voice prompts and other things are woring. filled the database and heard some mp3 files.

I've spotted a difference in behaviour when using the old (v2) bootloader and the current one, but in my case it shows up when booting into the OF, and does NOT affect the contrast when booting into Rockbox.

With the V2 bootloader, the OF contrast is good, but with the new bootloader I can hardly read the OF display (until I adjust the contrast).

I installed the bootloader by running ipodpatcher. Is there a separate bootloader I should try and install?

Installing the bootloader via ipodpatcher is correct. But you might want to uninstall the V3.0 boot loader (by running ipodpatcher again and selecting the appropriate option), then try downloading the older version of ipodpatcher from here http://download.rockbox.org/bootloader/ipod/2.0/ipodpatcher/ to install the v2.0 bootloader.

I tried that with no change.

did you have any luck getting it going?
