TFT LCD 3.5" OSOYOO

Sun Feb 14, 2016 12:15 pm

Hello all,

I bought a OSOYOO TFT LCD Module 3.5 " for my raspberry pi2, and I could not do the display show something.

I have written to the manufacturer, more than once, and they do not respond at all.

The display model, even is a little different than it has on their website, my display has two small connectors instead of one big one.

Does anyone have any experience with this dispaly that can help me? The version of my card is the V4.0

If possible I would like the LCD driver.

Thank you

Picked up one of these out of curiosity. Vendor did not provide any drivers or url info, so searched for a day to find a proper driver/img to get it working.
It is a cute toy and probably has actual uses, but I find even the Pi setup screens are often too large to even see the "OK" and "Cancel" buttons, and the screen doesn't scroll to reach them.
I did set my config.txt to match the screen size, but I think it is just the program size of the input boxes, since they are not resizable to add the scrollbar to see the rest.

So I bought one for testing. They don't provide a driver. Instead they write:
> "We do NOT support screen driver to be installed on existing OS on your Pi."

I wonder how clueless can a manufacturer be? For what it's worth, the kernel or disk image they supply might contain dragons and elves, spyware or incredibly poorly made configuration choices which make it break in future... and I have no reliable way to find out.

I'd rate it at two stars out of five, will throw it away and never purchase from OsoYoo again, unless they change their practises... but no big loss, it cost only 16 euros...
