BW Screen Flickering On & Off

Post by Jacob99 » Sun Oct 14, 2018 12:26 pm

I have a BW LCD screen like the following: https://www.amazon.co.uk/BW-Color-Camer ... B0045IIZKU
I have managed to connect this to my Raspberry Pi Zero W with success and the screen works brilliantly, however when trying to connect it to my Raspberry Pi 1 Model B the screen flickers on and off, mostly staying off and for fractions of a second briefly turns on before turning off again. I have heard this may be due to the voltage that the screen is receiving although the screen's board has been modified to run off of 5V and it is being powered through the pi's 5V GPIO pin. I have attached a picture showing how it is connected to the pi.

If anybody could point me in the right direction on how I would go about solving this any help would be greatly appreciated :D
