Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

22 posts later.. I just wanted to update everyone that my setup is up, running and fully functional now. My buddy bought a Pi kit and asked me to set it up for him. His Pi came with the DSI connector seated correctly. So, I swapped mine with his since he’s using strictly HDMI output. Thank you to ev...

Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

Alright everyone, here at the long-awaited pictures a few of you have been requesting. Anyone see any red-flags here? Just to clarify because I may have misspoke previously, the green indicator light does come on with this current configuration, but no display. Also, since the charge is going throug...

Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

I actually tried again before I left the house and the green indicator light DID come on, but no reaction from the monitor. I strongly believe it has something to do with the DSI connection. I know a lot of people have said that the connectors have been installed backwards on the boards when being b...

Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

I can do that in a little bit once im at my computer again. Let me ask a baseline question though. Whether the monitor is being read by the Pi or not, shouldnt the backlight on the screen come on regardless?

Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

There are no signs of low-voltage. Even still, I've tried other sources of power for the monitor and nothing works.

Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

I'm using a RPi 3 B+ for my setup. I have two of them and I tested both with the monitor and it still doesn't respond. Can't really take pictures of anything now because I'm at work. I'm 100% certain that everything is hooked up right as far as ribbon cables, power, and GPIO pins. The display is a n...

Re: 7” Touchscreen Not Working

I’ve tried every power combination possible that was suggested in previous threads. I’m not even getting the backlight screen to come on for the display. Is there any other route i can take here or should I just refund and get a new one? Most recently I had the GPIO pins connected and powered each t...

7” Touchscreen Not Working

Hello all, I need some serious guidance because there’s no consistency across the internet when trying to troubleshoot this issue. I bought the 7” display to hook up to my RPi, and I’m not getting any reaction from the monitor. I’ve flashed a fresh Raspbian to my microSD, made sure all the ribbon ca...
