The screen is not working correctly

Make sure to cut the trace on the shield next to CLK and run a wire over to A4. For more information, see Connecting Using RGB Matrix Shield and scroll down to the Metro M4 Usage section.

There is still a bunch of random pixels on the screen and it's unreadable

Try connecting power only or try a different ribbon cable.

The display keeps fading out or resetting.

Make sure you have enough external power going to the Metro M4 Express Airlift. The RGB Matrix requires a lot of power.
