8” LCD not functioning properly

by andrew_rbd on Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:52 pm

Order: 1665866-1832282320
When I plugged my new 8" LCD into a Raspberry Pi 3, the LCD lights up pure white, with a black streak covering about 1/4 of the screen, then the white area slowly dims to a mottled grey. The line item from my receipt:
1 x HDMI 5" 800x480 Display Backpack - With Resistive Touchscreen[ID:2260] =$74.95
Any ideas?

I just ran into the same issue with a 7" HDMI Display. Here are the photos of mine.
