Working with Raspberry Pi:
For the Windows OS on PC, the resolution of the LCD is automatically identified. Hence, you do not need to make the relative settings. When working with Raspberry Pi, you should set the resolution of the LCD by yourself, or else the LCD screen will not work. For more detail information, please read the following section.
Turn on the "backlight" switch then connect the LCD to your Pi (HDMI Port of LCD -> HDMI Port of Pi; USB Port of LCD -> USB Port of Pi; 5V~2A power supply). Download the Raspbian image from Raspberry Pi web site. Write the image to a TF card and add the following code to the end of /boot/config.txt:
max_usb_current=1 hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=1 hdmi_mode=87 hdmi_cvt 1024 600 60 6 0 0 0
Save and connect the TF card to your Pi then power up.
(Touch input working well means that the LED firmware is Rev2.1. If the lcd firmware is 1.1, touch function is unavailable, When work as a computer monitor.)
Note: The image in the CD is not used for Raspberry Pi 3. If a Pi 3 is in used, please download the latest Raspbian image from Raspberry Pi web site and do some proper settings following the steps above. Resolution of Ubuntu Mate OS or Windows 10 IoT Core OS can also be set properly by editing config.txt.
- Why the LCD doesn't work with my Raspbian?
- To use the LCD with the Raspberry Pi official image, driver should be installed first. Please refer to the user manual.However, for the first testing, you may want to use our provided image directly.
- Why the LCD still doesn't work with the Waveshare provided image?
- Make sure the hardware connection is correct and connects fine.
- Make sure the image in TF card is burnt correctly.
- The PWR will keep on and the ACT will keep blinking when the Raspberry Pi starts up successfully, in case both of the two LEDs keep on, it is possible that the image was burnt incorrectly OR the TF card was in bad contact.
- Which power supply should I use?
- It is strongly recommended to use a stand-alone 5V/2A power adapter, because the PC's USB port might have not enough power to support the Pi and LCD.
