Pi3 B+ and official 7" touchscreen not working

Sun Mar 25, 2018 8:50 pm

Anyone got the new 3 B+ working with the 7" screen?

I have it working with the 3 B and have triple checked all connections but can't get the 3 B+ too display anything on the screen with the latest Raspbian.

I know the connection is working because if I put an SD card in with Jessie, the screen does work - but the Pi won't boot beyond rainbow screen ... :(

Using official power supplies.

Solved by using latest RASPBIAN STRETCH WITH DESKTOP rather than LITE and different card reader to write the SD card.

Hmm... I'm going to have to test this out. My application specifically uses the Lite version (no need for gui/desktop) and boots in to my application right away. I hope I don't have to maintain two image files - just to support the touchscreen. I guess I'll find out.
