Hey everyone (if anyone is still here),
I've had my 437-S11 for ages now, but the HDMI port went out (there was a bent connector inside that I couldn't get to work anymore). I considered having the HDMI port replaced, but then decided to buy a board online.
The board came in and I installed it, and when I connect the power, the blue standby light turns on and everything.
However, when I push the power button, the blue light goes out, but I don't get any sort of picture. I put my old board in, and the same thing happens except with a pic (the screen comes on) - I have the back opened so I can watch the lights on the board go on and off.
I'm thinking that the new board needs to be flashed to a different firmware (if not just the original). Is there anyway to do this now? I've found a bunch of links on this forum, but almost all of them are dead/broken, and I don't have any of the software.
Does anyone out there have the MTK software for installing the firmware, as well as the USB driver and a 437-S11 firmware file?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this doesn't work, I'm thinking of returning the new board, and going down to a game repair shop to see if they can replace my HDMI port.
Thanks in advance!!
