Screen blanking

Hello

Can I get a hand please.

I cant work out if the blanking of the LCD is screensaver or power saving.

Take everything off the working Pi and place it on the suspect Pi

On the suspect Pi you could even measure the working 5 volts on the good Pi

You have been blessed with a working setup so copy it
