Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

I did some googling and the issue is with the SPI driver for the ili9341 that is being used (fbcp), so I did some googing and found another driver that I ending up getting to work amazingly (with both a pi0w and a pi3b+). To save you some time, I'll post my code below for easy install: git clone htt...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

Since we are all using the same screen/cables/and hardware, hopefully someone else has come across this issue: Screen lag. I'm running a pi3 with the ili9341 screen with all parts specified to get from this original post. I've upped the speed=90000000 as instructed as well off of the post on page4. ...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

Alive and Working! Who would have guessed, the masking tape did the trick. Turns out I "specifically" needed the masking tape on the monitor ribbon cable, not the ribbon cable between the pi and the pcb. WORKING! Great job and huge thank you!! Also, I found it helped to not ssh into the pi to instal...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

Ok, tried increasing the speed to 90000000 like you mentioned, so far nothing but white screen. I'm noticing that the screen turn on (white) as soon as power is added to the pi. If I run a shutdown script and the pi turns off, the screen still stay on until i physically pull the power. Does that hin...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

Soldered the small pcb directly to the gpio pins. It's definetly a better connection now as the screen doesn't flicker at all anymore, but it's still just a white screen still. I'm going to try re-imaging the SD card shortly to see if that helps. In the meantime, I'm relooking over all the scripts w...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

Here's some photos of everything, maybe something with give someone an idea of what's going on. Some notes: (1) I "have not" yet soldered down the small pcb board yet on the GPIO pins, bc I'm still waiting for confirmation that it's in the correct spot. I don't know why, but I can't find anywhere wh...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

Update: I found a 10 ohm resistor laying around, affixed that, and DID get the monitor to power on! But, I'm only able to get a white screen for some reason. I've tried con2fbmap 1 1, but I get no change. It outputs fine via HDMI. Spi is enabled, and overscan is disabled. Any other ideas? And just t...

Re: ili9341 SPI TFT Screen Connectors (for bare screens without boards)

I've having an issue with my setup. I have everything wired up, but I'm not able to get the screen to even turn on. I've added the script from the other link you submitted, but I'm not even getting the screen backlit. One difference I'm noticing is that my 8p connectors apparently are top connection...
