Is this a good question?

I have this same problem, but I'm fairly sure my LCD cables are oriented correctly: red line to pin #10, or pointed "up" when the electronics box is mounted.

Things that I've checked:

  • power supply is correctly set to 110V (I'm in US)
  • power cables seem seated correctly
  • green LED in the power supply lights up
  • green LED in the electronics box lights up

Any hints or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


After 4 passes through the instructions, I realized I had LCD cables 1 and 2 swapped. The middle picture showing the two LCD cables confused me as to which one was "in the front". LCD powers up now - phew!

I solved the problem. Normally in electronics the red side of a flat wire needs to be on the side of pin 0. However in de rumba mini it has to be on the side of pin 10. If you look close at the picture you can see it. I turned the cables, red away from pin zero and it came to life. Works like a charm now

Check the right orientation of LCD wire, if you do not put them correctly then nothing appear on LCD display... I do the same error on mine and was a little disappointed when powering on the beast :)
