Re: Ribbon cable for Camera vs IR Camera

The cable is just an FFC, type of camera doesn't matter ... And you can use it for the official touch display too.
Make sure not to bend FFCs to often, they don't like that.

Re: No signal on CrystalBrite TFT LCD screen

Code: Select all

 hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080
hdmi_group:0=2
hdmi_mode:0=82 
add this to your config.txt and report back

This lets the Pi ignore the EDID of your controller board and will force 1920x1080pixel

Why not simply use SD-card Copier for cloning the SDcard (instead of dd command (or are you linux pro?)? Find it from the Accessories Menue of your Pi OS.

Use a compute module as you don't need to have the crypto chip (which is required for the 'norma Pi' CSI interface.

Then the answer seems simple: the adapter is scrap.

I would recommend to buy a MiniHDMI ro HDMI cable instead of an adapter: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/mini-hdmi-cable

in case your raspberry is a Zero you can i.e.
- configure it to USB ethernet gadget mode and connect it via USB OTG to your tablet. VNC will allow you to control it
- if your Pi has WIFI configure it to Wifi hotspot --> connect your tablet to this hotspot and run VNC
