intermittent "white screen" problem



  • I’ve been setting up my MagicMirror and I have an odd problem. Seemingly randomly/intermittently the screen will go bright in a checkerboard type pattern. I tried to take a pic with my cellphone -

    checkerboard screen error

    A few feet away it looks like a solid white screen.

    pm2 log MagicMirror only showed a few “Can’t parse feed item:” but no errors logged. I can ssh into the pi and pm2 restart MagicMirror, and it comes back.

    Any clues? How can I fix this?



  • I just found some references to cranking up gpu_mem, just set it to 192 crossing fingers.
