WARNING!!

For working, the V5 needs a SD-card with the ZynthianOS software. Learn how to download the SD-image and prepare your SD-card.


1.2 Tools Required


  • Allen Spanner 1.5 mm
  • Allen Spanner 2.0 mm
  • Scissors or Cutter (NOT included in V5 kit)
  • Rule meter (NOT included in V5 kit)


1.3 Time Required


Depending on your skills and ability it may take 1 to 3 hours.


2 General Advice


  • Read and follow carefully the assembling instructions. Don't ignore any guidance or recommendations. We are quite lazybones, so we should have had some important reason to write them.
  • Use the browser's zoom for magnifying the details in the pictures. They have good resolution and will allow you to see all details you need.
  • Prepare the working space and the needed tools. A clean 120 x 60 cm table will be big enough. More is always welcome. Less is not recommended. Remove all stuff you don't need from the surface and prepare the tools you will need.
  • Ensure you have good lighting in the working area. Having good lightning will ease delicate operations, especially those involving smaller parts.
  • Please, be extremely delicate when manipulating the flat cable connectors (FPC). They are the weakest parts and can be easily broken. Look carefully at the photos/videos and proceed just in the way we recommend. Use 2 hands, one finger from each hand. Avoid manipulating the connectors with a single hand or finger and don't use any tool for this.
  • Don't be impatient. If you have doubts or you don't know how to go on, please, stop assembling and ask in the forum or send an email to support@zynthian.org. It's better to wait some hours to get an answer than waiting for days/weeks to get a replacement part.
  • Keep your hands clean so you can enjoy a nice unit after finishing.


WARNING!!

DON'T USE FORCE! NEVER! Some parts are really delicate, especially flat cable connectors (FPC), and you can easily break something if you are brute. Assembling the V5 unit is not difficult at all, but it's a clock-maker work. A beginners one that almost everyone can do, but clock-maker's task anyway. If you are not very used to manipulate this kind of stuff, please, proceed slowly. Thinking twice will let you build it once.


3 BOTTOM PART


3.1 Dump the screws from bag in a suitable receptacle


Capture000028 fixed wiki.JPG

Be careful when opening the screws bag. Some of them are really small and you can easily lose them. Please, don't dump them on the table's surface or on top a piece of paper. We recommend to dump the bag's content in a small tray, so you can look at and take out the parts easily while getting them well confined so they can't be lost.

Pay special attention to the 4 tiny headless screws used to secure the knobs. They are really small!! You can screw them into the knobs as a first step to avoid losing them during the build process.

Now is a good time to familiarize yourself with the different screw models available. Take a close look at the content of the screws bag and try to identify:

  • 12 x ISO7380 M2.5x5mm black zinc-plated steel => the smaller ones with round head
  • 21 x ISO7380 M3x5mm black zinc-plated steel => the slighty bigger ones with round head
  • 10 x DIN7991 M3x6mm black zinc-plated steel => the ones with cone-shaped head
  • 4 x DIN916 M3x4mm black zinc-plated steel => the headless ones
  • 8 x Hexagonal Spacer M3x10mm brass => they are the only brass parts



3.2 Stick the rubber feet to the aluminum case bottom


IMG 4112 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Look for the aluminum case bottom part in the "V5" case:


IMG 4041 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Look for the 4 x rubber feet inside the wiring bag, in the "Screen and Bits" case:


IMG 4118 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Stick the 4 x rubber feet to the aluminum case bottom part. This will prevent scratches during the assembly process.


3.3 Plug the display ribbon cable into the RPi4


IMG 4123 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Look for the display ribbon cable in the "Screen and Bits" case. It's 20cm long and 1.6cm wide:


IMG 4090 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Look for the RPi4 compute module in the "Accessories" case.


IMG 4135 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Open the RPi4's DSI connector by softly pulling both sides of the tiny black tongue at once. When it's totally open, push the ribbon cable inside, straight, with the blue side facing out. All flat cables in the V5 kit are reversible, so you can take any of the 2 caps, while taking care of placing the blue side facing out. When the cable is tightly inserted, close the connector by pushing the tongue with 2 fingers, one of each hand. Pay attention to ensure the cable does not move out of the connector. If it's not well inserted or not straight, repeat the operation until it's OK.


WARNING!!

When possible, use 2 hands to manipulate the fragile FPC connectors. You will control the applied force a lot better compared to just using a single hand. If you can't use both hands, take extreme care. In fact, extreme care should always be taken while manipulating FPC connectors.


Note:

If you break an FPC's connector tongue, you could work around the problem using a hot glue gun. Not nice, but it works quite well!


3.4 Install the thermal block


Zynthian V5 gets a 25% extra power from the RPi4 by overclocking the CPU up to 2 GHz. For this to work properly, we need to remove the heat generated by the RPi4's components. As we don't want a noisy fan, prone to failure, pushing dust inside our nice case, we are using the aluminum case as a huge heat-sink. This is achieved by the thermal block, a solid aluminum block that closely contacts with the RPi4's chips and serves as a heat-highway to the aluminum case bottom, and from there, to the rest of the aluminum case. When your zynthian V5 is working hard, or when external temperature is high enough, you will note the V5 case getting hot. This is good because it means the thermal block is doing its job of transferring heat from the inside to the aluminum case body, where it's dissipated to the ambient environment.

Having understood all this, you may realize this is a key step for getting your V5 working at 100% of its capacity, so don't be in a hurry and take your time to do a good job. Let's start!




Capture000005 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Look for the thermal block in the accessories case.


IMG 4045 fixed wiki.JPG
IMG 4142 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Look for the piece of thermal pad in the wiring bag, in the "Screen and Bits" case. It is a piece of approximate size of 60 x 20 mm, gray on one side and blue on the other.


3. Using the rule-meter and the scissors or cutter, cut 4 little pieces of thermal pad with these recommended sizes:


  • 27 x 20 mm
  • 11 x 11 mm
  • 11 x 9 mm
  • 6 x 6 mm


We find the easiest way is to proceed by cutting 3 strips like these:


  • 27 x 20 mm
  • 11 x 20 mm => cut this to get the 11x11 & 9x11 mm pieces
  • 6 x 20 mm => cut this to get the tiny 6x6 mm piece


IMG 4156 fixed wiki.JPG

4. Remove the blue protective sheet from the 3 smaller pieces and stick them to the inner side of the thermal block, the one that makes contact with the RPi4. You'll recognize it because it has 3 small rectangular islands that fit the size of the 3 smaller pieces you cut out. You can use your finger to press the thermal pad and stick it. Use your fingernail to cut off the excess, if any.


IMG 4191 fixed wiki.JPG

5. Take 4 x ISO7380 M2.5 screws. They are the smaller ones with rounded head.


IMG 4163 fixed wiki.JPG

6. Remove the transparent protective sheet from the 3 pieces of thermal pad and fix the RBPi4 compute module to the thermal block using the 4 x ISO7380 M2.5 screws.


IMG 4188 fixed wiki.JPG

7. Finally, stick the remaining piece of thermal pad (27 x 20 mm) on the contact surface in the external side of the thermal block. That is, on top of the "tower" with 2 tiny holes. Follow the same procedure you already did with the 3 smaller pieces, but don't remove the transparent protective sheet yet. This will be done later, when installing the module in the aluminum case bottom.


3.5 Assemble the Main Board into the aluminum case bottom


IMG 4108 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Take the main board from its case.


IMG 4191 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Take 4 x ISO7380 M2.5 screws. They are the smaller ones with rounded head.


IMG 4226 fixed wiki.JPG
IMG 4230 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Plug the RBPi4 (with the thermal block attached) on the Main Board's RBPi4 socket, the big one with 2 rows of 20 pin-holes each. Pay attention to not bend any pins. Also note that the display flat cable should pass through the rectangular hole in the main board, as seen in the photos (zoom in if you have doubts).


IMG 4195 fixed wiki.JPG

4. Fix the thermal block to the main board from the backside using the 4 x M2.5 screws.


Note:

At this point, you can do these steps in advance: 3.6 and 3.7. Some people will find it more comfortable to plug in the SD-card & USB-C adaptors before assembling the main board in the aluminum case. It's up to you!


IMG 4221 fixed wiki.JPG

5. Take 7 x ISO7380 M3 screws. They are the mid-size ones with rounded head.


IMG 4202 fixed wiki.JPG
IMG 4276 fixed wiki.JPG

6. Remove the transparent protective sheet from the piece of thermal pad stuck to the thermal block bottom and softly place the main board in the aluminum case bottom. You will find it more comfortable to grab the thermal block to do this operation. Fix it using the 7 x ISO7380 M3 screws.


3.6 Plug SD-card adapter


IMG 4270 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Look for the SD-card adapter in the wiring bag.


IMG 4282 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Carefully, using 2 fingers, one on each hand, pull the main board's SD-card connector tongue until it's totally open.


IMG 4286 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Insert the SD-card adapter's ribbon cable. It must be inserted straight, with the blue side facing down.


IMG 4289 fixed wiki.JPG

4. When it's totally inserted, push the tongue with 2 fingers at once and close the connector. Pay attention to ensure the cable does not move out of the connector. If it's not well inserted or not straight, repeat the operation until it's OK.


IMG 4296 fixed wiki.JPG

4. Plug the SD-card adapter into the RPI4's SD-card holder.


3.7 Plug USB-C adapter


IMG 4258 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Look for the USB-C adapter in the wiring bag.


IMG 4291 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Carefully, using 2 fingers, one on each hand, pull the main board's USB-C connector tongue until it's totally open.


IMG 4294 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Insert the USB-C adapter's ribbon cable. It must be inserted straight, with the blue side facing down.


IMG 4303 fixed wiki.JPG


4. When it's totally inserted, push the tongue with 2 fingers at once and close the connector. Pay attention to ensure the cable does not move out of the connector. If it's not well inserted or not straight, repeat the operation until it's OK.


IMG 4300 fixed wiki.JPG

5. Plug the USB-C connector into the RPI4's USB-C socket.


3.8 Stick the SD-card holder cover


This little piece of plastic is just to make sure you can't accidentally push the SD card into the gap between its slot and the case, thus losing it. But ... can this happen? Well, it's not easy, but we provided this nice piece of plastic for a reason ;-)


Capture000029 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Look for the SD-card holder cover in the wiring bag.


Capture000030 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Remove the protective sheet.


Capture000034 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Stick it on the main board's SD-card holder, so it is well-adjusted, touching the aluminum case.


3.9 Secure the thermal block to the aluminum case bottom


Capture000079 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Look for 2 x DIN7991 M3 screws. They have countersunk flat heads.


Capture000081 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Flip the aluminum case bottom and look for the 2 countersunk holes. Using the Allen wrench, punch the thermal pad through the holes.


Capture000082 fixed wiki.jpg

3. Screw the 2 bolts and tighten them well enough, but not too much.


4 TOP PART


4.1 Secure the top-spacers on the control board


Capture000060 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Take the control board from its case. You don't need the silicone buttons yet.


Capture000090 fixed wiki.JPG

2. If you don't want your Zynthian V5 to behave like a rattle, please, remove the nuts and rings from the rotary encoders. You don't need these, so you can throw them away or keep them in the screws tray.


Capture000071 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Take the 8 x brass spacers 10mm and 8 x ISO7380 M3 screws (the mid-size ones with round head).


Capture000068 fixed wiki.JPG

4. Secure the 8 x spacers on the control board's top side. To do this, insert the bolt from the back side and while holding it with your finger, fasten the spacer with the other hand until it's tight. You don't need a wrench for this, but you can use one if you like.


4.2 Assemble the display on the control board


Capture000072 fixed wiki.JPG

1. Take the display from its case. It should have 2 protective sheets. The first one is thin and baggy and the second one is thicker and it fits the LCD panel except for a small green tab. Remove the first protective sheet (the thin and baggy one) and leave the second one untouched. After this, flip the display and remove the 4 yellow protective sheets from the outer spacers. You can use your fingernail or a cutter for this operation.


IMG 4191 fixed wiki.JPG

2. Take 4 x ISO7380 M2.5 screws (the smaller ones with round heads).


Capture000076 fixed wiki.JPG
Capture000073 fixed wiki.JPG

3. Secure the display to the control board's top side using the 4 x small M2.5 screws. Don't tighten these bolts yet!!! The display must be loose to get a good fit with the aluminum case top part. You will tighten these screws later. Pay attention to the display orientation. The display FPC connector for the flat cable must be accessible through the main board's square hole.


4.3 Plug the flat ribbon cable into the control board


Capture000142 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Look for the control flat ribbon cable in the wiring bag. It's grey with blue tips, 15cm long and 1cm wide.


Capture000084 fixed wiki.jpg
Capture000085 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Carefully, using 2 fingers, one on each hand, pull the control board's FPC connector tongue until it's totally open.


Capture000086 fixed wiki.jpg

3. Insert the ribbon cable into the FPC connector. It must be inserted straight, with the blue side facing down. All flat cables in the V5 kit are reversible, so you can take any of the 2 caps, while taking care of placing the blue side facing down.


Capture000087 fixed wiki.jpg

4. When it's totally inserted, push the tongue with 2 fingers at once and close the connector. Pay attention to ensure the cable does not move out of the connector. If it's not well inserted or not straight, repeat the operation until it's OK.


4.4 Secure the control board, silicone buttons and display to the aluminum case top


Capture000039 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Look for the aluminum case top part.


Capture000099 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Look for 8 x DIN7991 M3 screws. They have countersunk flat heads.


Capture000089 fixed wiki.jpg

3. Place the silicone button pad on top the control board. Note the tiny silicone studs in the bottom of the pad and pay attention to make them fit into the small positioning holes on the control board. Once it's done, softly push the button pad to the side to check whether it sits snug in it's place. The pad shouldn't move when you try pushing it to the side.


Capture000094 fixed wiki.jpg

4. Use the "Screens & Bits" case as a mounting stand and place the control board on it, as shown in the picture.


Capture000095 fixed wiki.jpg

5. Place the aluminum case top part over the control board taking care of orientation and proceeding slowly. It's a good time to remove the display's protective sheet, or at least, fold the green tab out of the way so the display makes a good fit into the case's window.


Capture000101 fixed wiki.jpg

6. Secure the control board with the 8 x M3 countersunk screws. Again, tighten enough, but not too much.


Capture000102 fixed wiki.jpg

7. Flip the top part and place it over the carton-stand again. Now is the right moment to tight the 4 display screws from step 4.2 (do you remember?).


Capture000103 fixed wiki.jpg

8. Congratulations! We are ready to join everything together.


5 JOINING BOTH PARTS AND CLOSING THE CASE


If you want to place a CR2032 lithium battery for the RTC (Real Time Clock), this is a good moment. If not, don't worry, you can open the case and do it later.


5.1 Plug the display flat cable into the display


Capture000106 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Place the two parts one aside the other, forming 90º angle, as shown in the picture.


Capture000109 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Using two fingers, one on each hand, softly pull the display's FPC tongue until it's open. Insert the flat ribbon cable coming from the RPi4 into the bottom's part. Do it straight, without bending or twisting it in any way, so the blue side is face down.


Capture000110 fixed wiki.jpg

3. When it's totally inserted, softly push the tongue using 2 fingers, one on each hand, until it's totally closed. Pay attention to ensure the cable does not move out of the connector. If it's not well inserted or not straight, repeat the operation until it's OK.


5.2 Plug the control flat cable into the main board


Capture000113 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Rotate the top part until it's parallel to the bottom part, as shown in the picture.


Capture000114 fixed wiki.jpg
Capture000115 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Using two fingers, one on each hand, softly pull the main board's control-1 connector tongue until it's open. Insert the flat ribbon cable coming from the control board (top part). Do it straight, without bending or twisting it in any way, so the blue side is face down.


Capture000116 fixed wiki.jpg

3. When it's totally inserted, softly push the tongue using 2 fingers, one on each hand, until it's totally closed. Pay attention to ensure the cable does not move out of the connector. If it's not well inserted or not straight, repeat the operation until it's OK.


5.3 Close the aluminum case


Capture000120 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Fit the upper part into the lower part forming a 90º angle, as shown in the picture.


Capture000121 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Note the way the display flat cable naturally bends. You should force this bending by pressing with your fingers and marking a 45º fold. Zoom into the picture to see the detail.


Capture000123 fixed wiki.jpg

3. Close the case slowly, taking care that the cables are not being trapped.


Capture000158 fixed 1024.jpg

4. Before securing the case top and the knobs, it's a good time to burn a SD-card with the latest zynthian software image and check everything is working OK. Please, use a good quality SD-card and follow the instructions carefully.

First boot could take some time. Don't be impatient and wait until you see the splash screen with the logo. If the display remains black after 1 minute, please, re-check the instructions and re-burn the SD-card again. If this still don't work, try with a different SD-card before reporting in the forum. For solving SD-card issues, it could be useful to check the RPi4 status LEDs.

Once you see the splash screen, it could take some minutes until the system is ready. You deserve a beer, or at less some some tea or coffee. When the first-boot process finishes, the zynthian will reboot and you will be in the main menu, ready to play.


Capture000124 fixed wiki.jpg
Capture000125 fixed wiki.jpg

5. If everything worked fine and your zynthian booted, finish the task before start exploring your new zynthian V5. Take the remaining 6 x ISO7380 M3 screws and secure the case, 3 on each side. Tighten enough, but not too much.


5.4 Attach and secure the knobs


Capture000131 fixed wiki.jpg

1. Take the 4 x mechanized aluminum knobs from the wiring bag and the 4 x super-tiny DIN916 M3 screws (headless screws).


Capture000132 fixed wiki.jpg
Capture000133 fixed wiki.jpg

2. Insert the headless screw in the allen wrench and screw it partially into the knob side hole, until its head is slightly over the knob side.


Capture000135 fixed wiki.jpg

3. Repeat the step for the 4 knobs.


Capture000136 fixed wiki.jpg

4. Turn the 4 x rotary encoders until the flat cotter is pointing outside.


Capture000137 fixed wiki.jpg

5. Tighten the headless screws. Enough but not too much.


Capture000140 fixed wiki.jpg
Capture000158 fixed 1024.jpg

6. Congratulations! Your Zynthian V5 is ready to boot for the first (or second??) time. If you didn't yet, it's time to burn a SD-card with the latest zynthian software image. Please, use a good quality SD-card and follow the instructions carefully.

First boot could take some time. Don't be impatient and wait until you see the splash screen with the logo. If the display remains black after 1 minute, please, re-check the instructions and re-burn the SD-card again. If this still don't work, try with a different SD-card before reporting in the forum.
