BW screen help

Post by scbailey94 » Thu May 26, 2016 2:48 pm

Hi, I purchased this BW screen from and I think it is variant 7 on the wiki? It says that it is 5V compatible unmodded on the wiki so I was wondering what cables I connect to my pi0 and where abouts? If anyone if good at drawing quick diagrams or something it would be really appreciated! Many thanks

Hi there! ... pinout.jpg

Red to PIN2, Yellow to the square TV Pin and Black to the one besides the TV Pin.
If it does not work, try switching the Yellow with the White wire of your screen.
If it does not work, it does not run on 5v out of the box.
