    Hey guys, I installed my gcloader and put the swiss boot.iso in the root, but when I turn it on, all I get is a black screen (I do hear the startup jingle just briefly).

    I think my sd card might be the issue. Anyone know what I can try to get this working?

    I find on YouTube. You will need to check "Install & Setup". Hope it help you. :)

    No luck. Think it is broken.

    You bought GCLoader from Europe that show €70.25 Europe money right?

    You should contact seller for replace or full refund your money back. If seller refuse offer replace or full refund to you then you should fill a complaint with your PayPal or/and bank to get your money back.

    Did you find where GCLoader board made in? China?



    I find this black dog tech from US based that show US dollars on it.

    https://www.black-dog.tech/gc-loader-pnp.html

    $90.00

    I not sure if anyone bought this and maybe work or not. I worry about more defect or fault board maybe can be problems from factory for not doing strict quality control check before leave factory to shipped to stores. :(

    Everyone should release info to us about it.

    I would be a bit less offensive against the guy making these. I have one as well and works perfectly fine. I am wondering if @blinky87 contacted the seller first before going here? He is a very helpful person in my experience. Looking at the FP I am assuming blinky hasn't yet.

    Maybe share with the people here what your issue was, so that other people with the same issue can use your knowledge?

    Using gcloader with an ossc and modified component cable the ossc lost sync with the standard swiss settings. Since it lost sync, I was just getting a black screen and couldn't change or save any settings.

    So I got out my composite gamecube cable and hooked up a old composite to vga adapter I had and used that to boot to swiss using a vga monitor. Using the vga monitor I changed the swiss menu resolution to 576i instead of auto and now the ossc doesn't lose sync anymore so I can use the gcloader finally.
