Software Setting

Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali and Retropie systems are supported for Raspberry Pi.
When the LCD works on these systems of Raspberry Pi, the resolution must be set manually, otherwise, it will result in incorrect display resolution and affect the experience.

1. Please download the newest image from the Official Raspberry Pi website.
2. Download the compressed file on the PC and unzip it to get the .img file.
3. Connect the TF card to the PC and use SDFormatter to format the TF card. 4. Open Win32DiskImager, choose the image prepared in the first step, and click "Write" to write the system image.
5. After programming, open the config.txt file in the root directory of the TF card and enter the following codes at the end of config.txt. Then, save and safely eject the TF card.

hdmi_timings=768 0 80 32 60 1024 0 10 10 10 0 0 0 60 0 59400000 0

6. Insert the TF card into the Raspberry Pi, power on the Raspberry Pi, wait for a few seconds normally, and then it will display normally.

Working with PC

Support Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7

  1. Connect the Touch interface of the LCD to the USB interface of the PC, and Windows will automatically recognize the touch function.
