How to use
- 1. Connect the RGB LCD HAT to the JP1 socket on RGB 50P TO 40/50P adapter with an FFC cable (white).
- 2. Connect the FPC cable (golden) on LCD to the JP3 socket on RGB 50P TO 40/50P adapter.
- 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:
- For Raspberry Pi 2B/3B/3B+/Zero/Zero W
dtoverlay=dpi24 enable_dpi_lcd=1 display_default_lcd=1 dpi_group=2 dpi_mode=87 dpi_output_format=0x6f005 hdmi_timings=800 0 40 48 88 480 0 13 3 32 0 0 0 60 0 32000000 6
- For Raspberry Pi 4B, you need to add lines between [pi4] and [all], then remove/comment line dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-V3D as below
[pi4] # Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver on top of the dispmanx display stack #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d max_framebuffers=2 dpi_timings=800 0 40 48 88 480 0 13 3 32 0 0 0 60 0 26000000 6 [all] #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d dtoverlay=dpi24 enable_dpi_lcd=1 display_default_lcd=1 dpi_group=2 dpi_mode=87 dpi_output_format=0x6f005 hdmi_timings=800 0 40 48 88 480 0 13 3 32 0 0 0 60 0 32000000 6 disable_overscan=1
- 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.
