white screen pitft 2.8

Post by DruiddFluidd »

hi. i have a pitft plus 2.8 resistive touch screen. im having trouble getting it to work using the instructions provided by the adafruit product page for the "easy install". ive treid the last know working version, raspbian 03,13 and the newest version 4,14. im not sure why it doesnt work using the adafruit instructions but it doesnt. i did notice though because i saw it in a post that i read that the last unsupported image released for the pitft does work even though its "unsupported". im happy it works. my problem now though is that it doesnt have the pi zero w wifi and bluetooth drivers installed now. so its either, wifi with no screen or screen with no wifi. i need help getting this screen to work using the instuctions given.

The March 13, 2018 version is the one the guide currently is tested with. Can you provide more details about what issues you ran into when you tried that version.

druidd, can you post the output of the installation script? like the text that is printed out on the command line after you run the installer that will help!

I chose to reboot after I copied everything.

I've done this probably close to 20 tines over the last 2 weeks among other "solutions" ive found on the forum. Still no luck. I've reflashed the micro SD card probably just as many times as I've installed the "easy install script".
