I got my element 14 official rpidisplay and went through the build instructions in the video on the blog. However either the rpi is not detecting that there is an lcd screen, or the item is dead.
I've double checked the ribbon connectors, run sudo apt update and upgrade.
The pi is booting up OK because if I connect and hdmi screen that works fine.
However, without the hdmi screen connected, nothing at all appears on the lcd. (no light, nothing that I can see)
I have tried this with Jessie and with the previous raspbian build.
I am using a raspberry pi 2
Am I missing something obvious? Any recommendations for trouble shooting?
Many thanks in advance
