  • 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a hardware resolution of 800 × 480.
  • 5-point capacitive touch control, tempered glass panel, hardness up to 6H.
  • When works with Raspberry Pi, supports Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali and Retropie systems.
  • When working as a computer monitor, supports Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7, ten-points touch.
  • Support backlight control, more power saving.

Working with PC

This product supports Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7 OS.

1. Turn on the backlight switch on the back of the LCD.
2. Connect the TOUCH interface of the LCD to the USB interface of the PC. Wait for a while, the windows will automatically recognize the touch function.
3. Connect the HDMI interface of LCD to the HDMI port of the PC. About 10s later, you can see the LCD display properly.

Note:

  • 1) When the computer is connected to several different displays at the same time, only this LCD can be used to control the cursor on the main display, so we recommended setting this LCD as the main display.
  • 2) Some of PC cannot support the HDMI screen Hot Plug. In this case, restart the PC can solve.
  • 3) Sometimes LCD will flicker because of undersupplying from USB cable of PC. You need to connect an external power supply (5V/2A) to the DC port.

This LCD can support Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali / Retropie systems.

Please download the latest version of the image on the Raspberry Pi official website.

1) Download the compressed file to the PC, and unzip it to get the .img file.

2) Connect the TF card to the PC, use SDFormatter software to format the TF card.

3) Open the Win32DiskImager software, select the system image downloaded in step 1, and click‘Write’ to write the system image.

4) After the image has finished writing, open the config.txt file in the root directory of the TF card, add the following code at the end of config.txt, then save and quit the TF card safely.

hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=87
hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0  
hdmi_drive=1

You must make sure that there are no spaces on either side of the equal sign.

5) Insert the TF card into the Raspberry Pi

6) Connect the Touch interface of the LCD to the USB interface of the Raspberry Pi.

 Answer:
When the Raspberry Pi is powered by a 5V 2A power adapter and connects to a 5inch HDMI LCD (H), it doesn’t require an external power supply by default. However, if the user uses the Raspberry Pi to drive other high-power devices at the same time, the USB interface on the Raspberry Pi may be insufficiently powered, at this time an external power supply is required.

 Answer:
You can try to compile the universal touch driver "hid-multitouch" into the kernel, which generally can make the touch function work.

Anti-Piracy

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:
