    Is it just the background images that are white or do you have a blank white screen???

    This happened to me too once..

    Didn’t know the solution so I just started from scratch… Reformatted SD and burnt the image again.

    Have you installed roms for many different systems? If so you may run into a memory problem. Just decrease the amount of roms and see if this helps.

    Solution for this: Try the newest version of the Emulationstation theme:

    Downloads


    Within this theme the blurred background images were scaled down in size in order to fit more background images into the memory.

    In case you have not installed any roms:
    It looks like a memory problem anyway. Try to increase your memory split to 128/128 for a 256Mbyte Raspi or 256/256 for a 512 Mbyte Raspi.

    Did you alter any of the XML files in the themes folder? I know when I was working on my custom themes any time I made an edit to an XML that it didn’t like, this is how it would look.

    Anything like missing images, or fonts, or folders, it would cause this to happen.

    I had the same issue, you need to do what sunjammer said.

    Download the latest version of the Simple theme, and copy it to you Pi using WinSCP to the /etc/emulationstation/themes folder, so /etc/emulationstation/themes/simple

    reboot and it should then work 🙂

    yea this is the problem I have alot, I “break” the interface and I get white backgrounds. I know its a memory thing, I tryed changing to the 384 but that locked me out to white screen, I had to edit config back to 256… I look at the size of the “blurred” jpgs and thier HUGE. Ive been trying to get custom screens for each emulator but I break the intrerface. Im currently trying lower rez pics for blurred and other hoping I can get them in there withot breaking it.. ill post my results..
