Help with this screen board

Post by Feddd » Wed Jan 24, 2018 5:44 pm

Hi all,

So I’d bought one of those BW screens from amazon and my board doesn’t match any of the ones listed on the wiki or even others in this forum (although my knowledge in electronics is not good). Anyone got this version or could give me a hint to convert it to 5v?

Thanks for reading

In case anyone has this board, this is what I did and it worked. Now to deal with the flickering...

Use this wiring. You only need these 3 wires from the pi. Let me know how it goes.

Nevermind, I re soldered the wires and it works much better. The flickering is gone and despite its not such a good screen in my opinion, it does the job.

Thanks!
