Adafruit 2.8" PiTFT - Capacitive Touch: Non-responsive Scree

by aviola7x7 on Fri Mar 09, 2018 11:00 am

Morning All.

I recently ordered and received an Adafruit 2.8" PiTFT - Capacitive Touch (PID: 2423). I installed the screen onto my Pi3 which had an existing installation of Jessie and followed the instructions found here https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-2-8-pitft-capacitive-touch/easy-install. I made sure that everything I was doing was for the capacitive screen and not the resistive. Upon reboot I found the display to be working properly but not the touchscreen (could plug in a mouse and move the cursor but no touches registered). I removed the protective film in case that was causing an issue but to no avail.

Having assumed I screwed up the installation process, I decided to start from scratch. Rather than taking an existing install and following the procedure again to download everything, I instead downloaded the image found in the zip file from the link above (https://s3.amazonaws.com/adafruit-raspberry-pi/2016-10-18-pitft-28c.zip). I flashed this, booted the Pi, and found to be having the same problem: display works fine but no touches are registered.

I searched this forum and Googled my problem but haven't been able to find a resolution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

-Alex
