Hello, and welcome to AA!
Do you have any pics of the front and back of the Lynx board? They will definitely help with a diagnosis. Might show where a component might be installed incorrectly or shorted somewhere.

Try sending a PM to -^Cro§Bow^- on the forums. He McWill modded my Lynx II and it's a beauty. He might be able to help you get this one sorted, especially with the pics and updated info you've provided.

Not sure about that. I've never looked into the Lynx 1 and I had been told that the McWill mod was more difficult on the lynx 1. I can see why as the pin pitch to attach to on the LCD lines is much much smaller. More like working on the GG it would seem.

What part of the world are you in?
I have done a Lynx I mod recently. If you are in the EU the the postage is not that bad.

Too bad. I am in Finland. US postal service takes ages, cost the shirt and shred the packages. So it is better to look for local help.

Sounds like perhaps a fault now on the McWill PCB - if the regulator had died on it, that's not a good sign. I would ask McWill if you can send the mod back for him to check out - but you may have to pay for the repair if it needs a new chip. There's also a chance you have a wire connected incorrectly somewhere perhaps? Double check your wiring before sending the screen back to McWill I think.

As GadgetUK said double check your connections.
I cannot recall if the mod works with both the Lynx 1 and 2, if it does then you should have instructions for both, make sure you are following the correct instruction for your Lynx as some of the component references are different, i.e. C10 on a Lynx 1 is not necessarily in the same circuit and doing the same thing as C10 in a Lynx 2.
