Official 7in. RPi display control board v1.2

Mon Mar 19, 2018 6:55 am

A v1.2 control board for the Official RPi 7in. display; it would make my display useful.

PM if you have one and want to negotiate price.

Thanks!

Take a look here: viewtopic.php?f=108&t=208179 to OP on that thread may have a replacement display control board for you.

Thanks for the tip! He has a v1.1, so I'll look a little more.

Just curious, can't help OP and my google skills fail me.

What's the difference between V1.1 & V1.2?

v1.1 has an on/off control for the display, whereas the v1.2 has a proper brightness control

Thanks procount,

Your reply followed by further (more refined) google searches drew my attention to a sub forum in this very board (TBF I've only recently owned the official display), that forum (viewforum.php?f=108) answers a lot of my unasked questions.

I must have skipped past it hundreds of times over the last few years and probably just blanked it out over the last couple of weeks.
