PiTFT 2.8" DOA?

by glaciuz on Sat Dec 05, 2015 9:24 pm

Hello, I sent an email to support and I was told to post on this forum to get help.

I have a problem with my 2.8" PiTFT touchscreen
My order # is 945934-3700509040

The screen stays white when I try to boot my raspberry pi. it works fine with the HDMI port. I tried multiple distros. Rasbian, cupcade, etc...

I think it was DOA.

thanks

Have you tried the Adafruit image? That's what has the kernel drivers for the PiTFT:
Capacitive touch version:

Resistive Touch version:
