Re: Help with BW screen

Here's another attempt. Still just lines on the display. At this point I've already ordered another screen (hopefully i'll get one that's been proven to work this time). I'm wondering if I should order another pi as well, because I don't know how possible it is that I burned part of the board withou...

Re: Help with BW screen

Unfortunately I don't think we have the same chip, Gus. I've been doing some trial and error and have found out a couple things. Yellow and white wire seem to act the same, screen doesn't power on if red is connected to original contact point or first or third pins of the IC. The middle pin and tab ...

Re: Help with BW screen

I gave it a try and the screen turns on, but it just displays lines. Keep in mind that this was basically my first time soldering, so it's really really bad and might even be the issue. I don't think I figured out how to keep the iron clean until I was about done. Also note that the white cable is n...

Re: Help with BW screen

I'm waiting on a hub to come so I can connect a keyboard to my pi, since i may or may not have to change a line in a config file so the pi will output to the display instead of hdmi. I'm going to test it first by connecting a usb head to the red and black wires and see if it will work with 5v withou...

Help with BW screen

Hello! I ordered one of those 3.5 inch BW screens off of amazon and took it apart, but the board doesn't seem to exactly match any of the variants on the wiki. I'm very new to this stuff and this is my first project of this sort. So I'm wondering what I need to do to make it work with the pi zero an...
