Why do i only get a white screen?

Sat Oct 31, 2015 5:47 pm

I have both a Raspberry Pi B & a Raspberry Pi B+. Both work fine when i connect them to my 7"Screen but whenever i try to use them with my 3.5" TFT Screen, It's just WHITE! It IS an official screen. Can somebody help please? Thanks

The only Official RPF Screen is the recently launched 7"

Therefore what screen do you actually have issues with :?:

Thanks for he advice. This is the first time i've actually connected a Pi to t'interweb & i've been using the Debian OS. I'll swap to Wheezy now & see if THAT helps. Thanks again. I'll upload a couple of pics of the screen, just in case that helps.

That's not a Raspberry Pi product.

Could you post where you bought it from? "Raspberry Pi" is a registered trademark.
