    Thank you very much. I appreciate a company that cares about their customers and their product.

    It’s a little crispy but the pads are all there and nothing is crossed

    That’s fine. The board’s input never seems to make it to the board’s. No matter what position I have the switch and jumper in, I get no signal out. Even with no arduino connected.
    Just to be sure, the switch is in overlay, and the jumper is set to v-input.

    I checked all the solder connections, still nothing. I double checked the VCR to make sure it was outputting video and made sure the Arduino was working. Both checked out fine. I can only assume it’s the board.

    Yes, the VCR does have output. Which connections should I check first?

    Yes, the signal does not pass from input to output with the switch in overlay and the jumper set to input.

    Sorry about that. I am trying to run overlayDemo, the switch is set to overlay and the jumper is set to v-input. Running an Arduino uno. Thought the problem might be the Arduino uno since the initOverlay gave it problems, but I tried my second Arduino to no avail. I already found a bad capacitor on the Video shield and replaced it (tested it with a volt meter reading for ohms of resistance, no connection was found between the capacitor’s leads) it still does not work. I am giving it video input from a VCR that is playing a video. If I put the switch in sync only mode, the jumper in the D9 position AND remove initOverlay, I can get a nice clear signal. Any other setting and the screen flickers and the TV looses connection.

    I would like to apologise for the first post. It lacked a bunch of information. Your kit is exactly what I need for my project, but I just need to figure out what’s wrong with it…
