rpi-update turns touchscreen upside-down [SOLVED]

Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:36 pm

Hi there,

a few minutes ago I ran sudo rpi-update on a new Pi2 with the new touchscreen attached. After reboot, the screen was turned upside-down. The bad thing: I already have build the screen into a fixed frame and it would be difficult to turn it manually.
Can some tell me how to adjust the Pi's settings to turn it back to normal?

Thanks for your help

Thanks, so it had ben upside-down before?

"Actually it is correct now and was upside down before.
You get a better viewing angle from above than below which is normally what is desired.

Add lcd_rotate=2 to config.txt if you prefer the previous behaviour.
"
So as recomended, I tried to turn it and place it the right way.
To remove it from the frame, but had to use a sharp knife and damaged the cables between screen and controller. :o :oops: :evil:
It was such a nice device. :(

So to all having the same issue: be very carefull or try "lcd_rotate=2" !
