Working with PC

This Support PC version Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7 system.


  1. Connect the Power Only port of the touch screen to a 5V power adapter.
  2. Use a type A to micro USB cable to connect the Touch interface of the touch screen and any USB interface of the PC.
  3. Connect the touch screen and the HDMI port of the PC with an HDMI cable. After about a few seconds, you can see the LCD display normally.
  • Note 1: Please pay attention to connecting cables in order, otherwise it may not display properly.
  • Note 2: When the computer is connected to multiple monitors at the same time, the cursor on the main monitor can only be controlled through this LCD, so it is recommended to set this LCD as the main monitor.

Working with Raspberry Pi

Software setting

Supports Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali and Retropie systems on Raspberry Pi.

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

1. Download the compressed file to the PC, and extract the img file.
2. Connect the TF card to the PC and use SDFormatter to format the TF card.
3. Open the Win32DiskImager software, select the system image prepared in step 1, and click write to burn the system image.
4. After the programming is completed, open the config.txt file in the root directory of the TF card, add the following code at the end of config.txt and save it

hdmi_cvt 1280 800 60 6 0 0 0

Backlight Adjustment

#Step 1: Download and enter the RPi-USB-Brightness folder
git clone https://github.com/waveshare/RPi-USB-Brightness
cd RPi-USB-Brightness

#Step 2: Enter uname -a in the terminal to view the number of system bits, v7+ is 32 bits, v8 is 64 bits
cd 32
#cd 64

#Step 3: Enter the corresponding system directory
#Desktop version Enter the desktop directory:
cd desktop
sudo ./install.sh
#After the installation is complete, you can open the program in the start menu - "Accessories - "Brightness for backlight adjustment, as shown below:


#lite version Enter the lite directory:
#cd lite
#./Raspi_USB_Backlight_nogui -b X
# X range is 0~10, 0 is the darkest, 10 is the brightest.
#For example: ./Raspi_USB_Backlight_nogui -b 3

Note: Only the Rev4.1 version supports the USB dimming function.

Hardware connection

  1. The Power Only interface of the touch screen is connected to a 5V power adapter.
  2. Connect the touch screen to the HDMI port of the Raspberry Pi with an HDMI cable.
  3. Use a type A to micro USB cable to connect the Touch interface of the touch screen to any USB interface of the Raspberry Pi.
  4. Insert the TF card into the TF card slot of the Raspberry Pi, power on the Raspberry Pi, and wait for more than ten seconds to display normally.




Note: Under normal circumstances, we do not recommend customers modify the hardware by themselves. Modifying the hardware without permission may cause the product to be out of warranty. Please be careful not to damage other components when modifying.



  • This may be due to the customer turning on the option for hdmi_drive in config.txt


  • The method is to comment out this line and reboot the system. After rebooting, the screen may not be fully recovered, just wait a few minutes (sometimes it may take half an hour, depending on the time of operation under abnormal conditions).

  • Make sure that the HDMI interface of the PC can output normally.
  • PC only connects to LCD as display device, not to other monitors.
  • Connect the power cable first and then the HDMI cable.
  • Some PCs also need to be restarted to display properly.


You can try compiling the general touch driver "hid-multitouch" into the kernel, which generally supports touch.


Using a 5V power supply, the working current of the backlight is about 750mA, and the working current of the backlight is about 300mA.


Remove the resistor as shown below, and connect the PWM pad to the P1 pin of the Raspberry Pi.
Execute the following command in the Raspberry Pi terminal:

gpio -g pwm 18 0
gpio -g mode 18 pwm (the occupied pin is the PWM pin)
gpio pwmc 1000
gpio -g pwm 18 X (X value in 0~1024),0 represents the brightest, and 1024 represents the darkest.
