Software settings

  • 1. Write the Raspbian, Ubuntu Mate, or OSMC system image to your micro SD card. You can download the images from Raspberry Pi web site https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
  • 2. Edit the /boot/config.txt file in the SD card and append the following lines:
dtoverlay=dpi24
enable_dpi_lcd=1
display_default_lcd=1
dpi_group=2
dpi_mode=87
dpi_output_format=0x6f005
hdmi_cvt 1024 600 60 6 0 0 0
Note:
  • You must make sure that there are no spaces on either side of the equal sign.
  • If your system is installed from NOOBS, you have to connect your Pi to another monitor and hold down the shift key while system booting to edit the config file.
  • 3. Save the file and insert the SD card into your Pi.
  • 4. Turn on the backlight switch.
  • 5. Power up and the LCD will display in most cases.
  • Note: RGB LCD HAT is designed for many LCD types, and the VCOM voltage can be changed by fine tuning the VCOM adjustable resistor to get a proper image. Each LCD may have a slightly different VCOM voltage, in some cases, you have to adjust it to get a better image. Working outside of the range of VCOM voltage for a long time may lead to LCD damage. So please don't make the LCD work in an abnormal status more than 10 secs while adjusting the resistor.
