320×240, 2.8 inch Resistive Touch Screen TFT LCD, Designed for Raspberry Pi




Description: if you felt hard to install driver, try the image with driver pre-installed.

This item is compatible with 3.2inch RPi LCD (B) (the only differences are screen size and keys count), and can be an ideal substitute in most cases.


The driver can be downloaded from github

git clone https://github.com/waveshare/LCD-show.git


LCD Panel Dimension


Why does the touchscreen not work well?

Now, we only provide touch screen drivers for Raspbian and Ubuntu Mate. How to install the driver? See:#Method_1._Driver_installation

Why does the image provided on wiki does not work on my Pi?
  • The image provided may differ depending on batches, however, some Images are just available for Pi 2 (or before, but not for Pi 3). In such cases you can download the latest version from Raspberry Pi website and install the driver. See:#Method_1._Driver_installation
  • Make sure the hardware connection is correct and connects fine.
  • Make sure you've written the image to your SD card using the software File:Win32DiskImager.zip rather then just copy and paste.
  • It is strongly recommended to use a stand-alone 5V/3A power adapter, because the USB port of PC might not have enough power to support the Pi and LCD.

Could I only connect the HDMI cable?
No, the HDMI interface is only used for display. You also need to inserted the GPIO for touching and power. BTW, you can also connect external power adapter to USB interface for power if LCD has external power interface.

What is working temperature of this LCD?
The working temperature is 0°C -- 70°C

What are the power requirements?
When working with 5V input, the current is about 115mA.


Since the first-generation Raspberry Pi released, Waveshare has been working on designing, developing, and producing various fantastic touch LCDs for the Pi. Unfortunately, there are quite a few pirated/knock-off products in the market. They're usually some poor copies of our early hardware revisions, and comes with none support service.

To avoid becoming a victim of pirated products, please pay attention to the following features when purchasing:
