[mention=11434]vlgxejme[/mention] OK, to upgrade you System, follow this steps:

 

  1. 1st step:

    - unplug the 16 pin ribbon cable from the PCB!

  2. 2nd step:

    - connect the ribbon cable to the HUB75 on your V4 Shield!

  3. 3rd step:

    - connect +5V DC to this screw Terminal like it is labeld!

    - in this pic:

    - left (next to the nucleo): GND

    - right (on the outside): +5V DC

  4. 4th step:

    - connect a micro USB cable to this USB port and you PC, to hook up you Pin2DMD.

    - Maybe follow install instruction on the www.Pin2dmd.com side for drive installation!

     

  5. additional step: for a Firmware update, connect a micro USB cable to this port (I have all the time both ports connected) and your PC.

    Then follow the FW Upgrade instruction on www.pin2dmd.com

I think that you are able to handle that or?
You just have to connect some wires for teh 5V DC!
Disconnect your Power Supply! before you start working on anything like that!
