What does not work?
Have you connected the ribbon cable the right way? All cables the right way?

Most displays work out of the box, with the new raspbian (as well as with wheezy) :!:

I didn't think about try with wheezy. but the JESSIE is the new one right?.
I'll try wheezy today. let you know the results.

many thanks.

I don't think it's the distro. The display must flash up when powering up...
How did you do the power supply for the display?

Hi RaTTuS, ulix,

power lcd -> pi.
It was not effective for me.
I rather check my lcd board.

Is it possible damage on lcd board if I feed 5.13V for the lcd power?

How can I get my lcd board's status dead or alive?

Thank you.

Hello?.

I have problem with my official 7" LCD. please help!!

Symptom :
1. the screen shows nothing = black
2. back-light not work.

The flat ribbon cable is fine, connected right way.

I have had powering up two ways.
5V -> pi -> lcd : not working
5V -> lcd -> pi : not working.

The pi OS image is newest version and upgraded.
I have tried may ways to revive my lcd screen. but it gives me pain.
So, I would like to check the lcd board's condition.
I have a basic electronic tester and dso138 oscilloscope. but not a expert of electronics.

Do you have any test sequence for the lcd board's condition?
Any suggest is welcome.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Kevin.

Since there are no schematics it's hard to troubleshoot.
I personaly think it has something to do with the supply voltage. Could you measure it on the lcd board?
Please add some pics of you setup with the display! Then we can investigate further...
And I don't think you will break it with 5.2V.

Hi ulix,

Yesterday, I had asked to local Rpi distributor for check out the AD board status.
I believe they will shipping for RMA if it was defective.
or I could buy a new lcd. :(

Happy Christmas!!

Thank you.

Kevin.

This was happening to me too, until I realized I was being an idiot and the SD card had slipped out a bit—are you sure it's properly seated?

Hi,

I've got answer from local distributor.
In my case, (I was remove USB port and 5 pin from AD board as below image link) because of my AD board was modified. they can not process RMA.

So, I asked them if I can buy a new AD board, and answer was NO.

This is so bad case.

Kevin.

Indeed bad luck. But the distributor is right, modifying a board as you did is always a valid reason for refusing warranty.

Are you sure (you did not tell us you did this mod!) the mod is not the cause of your problems? Removing an USB port is quite some surgery.

Maybe we can find the error.
Could you post some pictures from the board? So we can see how the desoldering was done?
Then we could look into the board...

Unfortunately you voided the warranty by attempting rework yourself, but I wish you luck......
