    Ok, so I found that the two capacitors that are in line read 4.99 volts, do I solder one wire to each post of the cap? I don't know if they are polarized, theres a circle under each one split down the center, one side is blank, the other side has cross hatching

    I bought the backup screen that you suggested in your link, but the circuit appears to be totally different than your setup, I have very little electronics experience and I have no idea how to test for the voltage and where on the board to look. I have a multimeter, Do I just hook up the display to 12 volts, ground the multimeter on the black wire on the connector then just look around for a spot that reads 5 volts? I hate to bother you, but if you don't mind I'd like your help with this and maybe a couple other questions in the future.

    I see you used the same switches for the shoulder buttons as the rest of them instead of the ones you listed in the parts list, how did that work out for you? And you used a salvaged usb port, i'm trying to piece this together from my junk box, did the hot glue work well for the usb? Thanks for this instructable, i've got most of these parts laying around including the screen from a homemade night vision I made. I'm just hoping I can get the case to print because I'm using a da vinci 1.0 and the case just barely fits, its a 200mm bed so I can't use a brim so i'm gonna try some mouse ears at the corners
