LCD screen does not work after disabling HDMI.
When I used the Disable HDMI feature the system indicated it is was going to reboot, it did not. I manually rebooted the device but the LCD screen did not comeback. The screen is not broken because it flashes on initial boot, the blinking cursor is present in the upper left corner of the screen, and the OrangePie wallpaper flashes for half a second. I plugged the HDMI cable back in and Emulation Station was showing. I tried to disable HDMI again and the following messages appeared:
[62b6f8] vlcpulse audio output error: PulseAduido server connection failure: connection refused
[659a90] dbus interface error: Failed to connect to the D-bus session daemon: unable to autolaunch a dbus-daemon without a $DISPLAY for x11
[659a90] main interface error: no suitable interface module
[5b7258] main libvlc error: interface "dbus, none" initialization failed
[60fa18] main interface error: no suitable interface module
[5b7258] main liblvc error: interface "globalhotkeys, none" initialization failed
[60fa18] dummy interface: using the dummy interface module...

No response after the last line. Rebooted and ran Enable HDMI then Disable HDMI with no change.
Rebooted system without HDMI cable plugged in. Waited a couple of minutes then plugged HDMI cable in and the following was displayed:

ASCII art of the OrangePie guy
Standard status display with temp[55c], IP, Up time, memory usage, and battery
security updates available, 8 updates total: apt upgrade]
check: 2020-02-20 11:30

0: Error initializing SDL!
    No currently active connector found.
0: Renderer failed to initialize!
0: window failed to initialize


Going to make a new image on another SD card to test the system.

Update: New image works fine, no hardware issues. I am keeping the SD intact, if you want any files from it for troubleshooting let me know.
EmulationStation will spit that error if HDMI mode is enabled and there is not cable plugged in

HDMI script needs tweaks to avoid such error, for now try this from terminal:

make sure you have internet, plug ethernet or connect to wifi

sudo modprobe brcmfmac
will enable wifi 

sudo nmtui
will connect 

sudo tar -xvf hdmifix.tar -C /
sudo poweroff
Backing up my rom folders off the SD card. Will give the above a try when it's done

ok gave it a try. Got an error about using the wrong attributes for tar
