[Recalbox 7.0.1] Nespi 4 - Stuck at black screen on boot.
Kveld last edited by
Just flashed Recalbox to my 64GB microSD card (Samsung EVO), and I have been sitting at a black screen for 10 or 15 minutes now. I am aware that the first boot can take awhile but this seems to be longer than it should be. I saw something that mentioned that there is a power issue with the NES Pi 4 case from RetroFlag, but all of the threads I saw on here are in French and I dont understand what is being said or what the solution is.
Any idea on what I need to do to fix this?

Also tried to load Recalbox on another Pi4 not in a case and have the same issue, been sitting at a solid black screen for an hour and a half now.
@Kveld Try with another SD card (class 10), the recommended is an SD card of maximum 16Gb for the system, and store the ROMS and BIOS in an external storage (external HD or pendrive)

@Zing Alright I will try that tomorrow and see if it works. Thanks

Same problem here with 7.1.1... stuck at black screen.
It´s the same card that I have the previous version but I opted to do a fresh install. It´s not a problem with the card because I tried a different emulation frontend and it worked fine.
@springjack You didn't make it clear:
Is your hardware an Rpi4?
Does the black screen appear from the first boot? Or just after you copy your files?
Have you tested with another cable?
Have you tested it on another TV?

I'm having the same issue. I have Recalbox on an 128GB SSD and it works fine with my other Raspberry Pi's that are not in the NesPi4 case. I've tried the SSD in the game cartridge as well as in a USB slot with SATA to USB adapter. Every time it loads to a black screen and does nothing. I've even attempted putting Recalbox on a MicroSD card as a test and ended up with the same results.
There are no issues loading the Raspberry Pi OS or Ubuntu 20.10. I can load them with USB and with a MicroSD card no issues.
If anyone has a fix, please do share.
