I received my assembled “deluxe” version, unfortunately it seems like it got badly rattled in shipping. The box was fine, but the guts inside the 3D print were scrambled – LCD mount tabs were all broken off, as were the friction fit pins holding the PCB to the wall plate.
When I apply power from a large 16VAC transformer (alarm panel) everything appears to power up, the LCD comes on full bright and the Pi activity light begins flickering. Unfortunately even after 10-15 mins to LCD is still full bright with no text or other display. I tried reseating the display, SD card, resetting by power removal and reapplication, but the result is the same.
The Pi is soldered to the PCB, and I have no way to plug into either USB or mini-HDMI as they are blocked by relays and AC-DC converter.
Seems to be no way to access the device as it’s not on my network and I have no display or physical interface.
Any ideas what I can try to salvage this?
I do have other Pi Zero W’s, so I could boot the SD in one of those to get it on WiFi, or add my WiFi info to the /boot area…
