Hello,

I got today brand new pap k3 plus from aliexpress with jz4760 cpu. I started one game, played for 2 minutes, and console froze (textures mixed up with grinding sound in the background). I did reset and after that screen stopped working. Now every time when I turn on console I can hear the sound of menu but the screen is blank. Does anybody know how to fix this?  ???
Even if I plug it to TV its the same. Blank screen with menu sound like when you select games.

I ended up with two of these devices arriving today. One from Amazon (Slim statin on the box) on the other from the recommended AliExpress seller. Anyway I opened up the AliExpress one in other to make a backup of the micro sd. I did not realise how fragile the smaller ribbon connecting the screen to the PCB was. It tore and then the screen remained black but I could hear sound when pressing the buttons like the user above reported.

Luckily I had two but I would be very wary about opening the device up in future. I'm guessing somehow that very small ribbon cable tore somehow with the user above also.

Does anyone know if there's a way to at least change the home screen pre-selected game icons? Just a motley collection of weird games shown there that I rarely ever play. Would be nice to have my own curated set.

Thanks for any info.

If you have a PAP KIII Plus, which you should if you bought it recently.  Right now we have a great custom dmenu from Jack83.  You can edit the config of the menu.  I set up my menu as I liked.  You need to play around and figure stuff out, but the dmenu and set of emulators really makes the system stand out for $45.

Wonderful...thank you! Works like a charm!

(PS- I am assuming that I need all new ROMS for the new emulators?)

Hello all, I'm new to this forum and I got the PAP K3 Plus for Christmas form my wife this year ;D. She knows I'm into retro and have my own#Invalid YouTube Link# Level By Level Gaming. I use to be big into the PSP Hack community when they were new and broke one after many years. Could easily fix it but she got me this and I'm intrigued. I have posted 6 videos on this thing so far (more coming) so if anyone is interested come check me out at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN25Sl8nR2pcbikBa2ZRZvQ

Sorry, realized this is not the right place for this post. Moving it to the PK3+ thread.
