White Screen with PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8"

Post by redkins01 »

Recently purchased and set up the PiTFT touch screen using the instructions on the website (found here). After reboot, the screen was still white. I tried looking into it and saw that someone else had this issue, and it seemed like it was hardware (found here). I am not sure what is causing it. I checked the screen, and all the connectors seemed to be fine. Let me know if any more info is needed and I appreciate the support!

Which OS release image were you using as a starting point?

What model Pi are you using?

It's only been confirmed working for the OS versions mentioned in the guide. Try installing one of those to an SD card and see if it'll work with known OS releases.
