[Solved] Pimoroni Inky pHAT not updating

Thu May 16, 2019 2:04 pm

If you have a Pimoroni Inky pHAT and it stops updating after a boot just check you are not powering the Pi via the USB ports - for some reason you have to go through the actual power connector for it to work...

Only enough, the display software just seems to hang - I assume at some point it would time out but I gave up by then.

Took me awhile to spot this (Pi zero is upside down) as the Pi was working fine and of course the display showed the last message :lol:
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...
