Screen Blanking problems- Device crashes & Screen goes black

Postby batrarobin » Thu Sep 27, 2012 6:23 am

Hi guys,

I am one of those people who are experiencing this problem of "blanking", so I thought I'd make a common discussion thread to work together to find a solution. Please discuss your screen blanking problems here for Mk802 and Mk802-II. Here are some discussions that are happening on the topic, but lets only maintain one thread and post here if we have anything to discuss on this particular problem :

Guys, I have found the solution to the Blanking problem.... It's happening due to the excessive heat generated within the device.... I put a table fan running on the device, and it worked for hours and hours without any problem.... So now I am going to modify the case, and mount the heat sinks and also put a small USB fan on it to cool it down.... Exciting times :)

Yeah, it was because of overheating, as you have just found out. Mounting the heat sinks and putting up a small USB fan are definitely nice ideas. Even though I think its better to stick on with the heat sinks.
