  • 3. Insert the TF card into the Raspberry Pi, power on the Raspberry Pi, and wait for a few seconds. After the system boots up, you should be able to enter the display interface and the LCD should touch normally.

Due to the round screen feature, it is recommended to use it with the Raspberry Pi remote login tutorial for boot setup.

Working with PC

  2. Connect the LCD to the PC through the HDMI interface, and Windows will automatically recognize the touch function.
  • Note:
  • Some PCs do not support the plug-and-play functionality of the HDMI devices, generally, it works after rebooting the system.
