KeDei 3.5 inch SPI TFTLCD module connectors ?

Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:46 pm

It finally arrived today.
Even with "glue it yourself together " RPi box. Nice touch.
Small issue - the female connectors are "sticking out" and MAY be in wrong place to directly mate with RPi.
I have not bother to check that, but....
are these connectors removable ?

Just asking, I can wire it OK as is.

All images I have seen so far DO NOT HAVE MALE pins , just these female connectors.
I am not in favour to try to "pull them off" .

hippy

You will probably find they are in the required place. All the board images I have seen in passing appear to show the connectors have a 26-way footprint except the middle pins are not populated. It should be plug straight on to a Pi. For example -

Perhaps post a link to the product you have if it's different to that.

Possibly. If you have the right tools, patience and apply the right techniques, but I have my doubts.

It can be difficult to remove header sockets from a through-plated board without causing damage, and that's going to be harder still if the side you want to heat from to unsolder is under the LCD screen itself.

It is probably better to just run flying wires from the socket to Pi header or use a suitable ribbon cable extender..

OK, they are NOT removable.
Already wired by Du-Pont jumpers and the backlit is working.
Thanks for replies - case closed.
