Re: Help for screen to run on 5V

@Shoots I have the same board and that is not where you should wire it. That IC is not the regulator. Your IC and the main square IC must be heating up quite a bit These are the voltages for 12v and 5v. I have hooked 3.3v to point labelled 3.3v in 12v image. This runs the display well.

Re: Need help with screen!

Can you try changing the yellow wire to the other pin (one on the left)?

Re: Full VGA resolution (640x480) 3.5" display, composite in

Hey guys i just ordered this display PD035VX2 and the seller accepted 70$ including shipping. Lets see how it turns up. Is vga that much better than composite or you compromising the hdmi?

Also are the HDMI + Touch displays 480x320 better than 320x240?
