Mirror stays black, nothing shown



  • So i mad the MM start after a lot of troubles (https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/6060/failed-at-the-magicmirror-2-2-2-start-script-sh-run-start-sh?page=1)
    Now the problem is that the display/vncview stays black, no module shown. What can i do?
    This is the console log from vnc

    ~/MagicMirror $ npm start
    
    > magicmirror@2.2.2 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > sh run-start.sh

    If i start without anty config i still get a black screen (compared to the old error message about the config file)

    pi@raspberrypi:~/MagicMirror $ npm start
    
    > magicmirror@2.2.2 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > sh run-start.sh
