    I recently made a retropie and it won’t load on a TV that is bigger then a 19″.

    If I try to use it on a TV bigger than 19″ it just freezes as it loads up on the Emulation Station white screen.

    Any solution?



    What version of pi?
    What version of retropie?
    Define ‘freezes’? How long have you let it wait for? How many emulators/games have you put on?
    Have you overclocked the Pi?

    I have a Pi 2 using v2.6 against a 26 and 42″ screens and I’ve not had this problem. Sometimes Emulationstation can take a long time to start but I only really had that on initial start up or on my Pi 1.

    Can you exit emulationstation / not start it from boot? Are there any errors?



    I bet it’s a power supply problem – what power supply are you using? Is it plugged into a surge-protector or something?
