7" pi touchscreen

Thu Sep 24, 2015 4:42 pm

Very excited to receive my Pi touchscreen, connected it all carefully as in the tutorial, powered it on but there is nobody home. Checked all the ribbon cables are fully inserted and locked, I'm using a 2 amp supply plugged into the driver board with jumper cables powering the Pi. If I connect the HDMI to my TV the PI display shows up there. Is there any dimming circuit I'm missing or do I have to activate the DSI output somehow?

Hey Dozy, install the get-apt update and upgrade and it will work fine.

You have to install the OS in order for the screen to work.
