    Advice on display working ootb on piCorePlayer

    Hi there,
    since i have problems with my Raspberry Pi "official display" (touch only works on the upper part of the display) i think of purchasing a replacement.

    As my linux knowledge is limited, i am looking for something that is running ootb (probably i can get something else running if there is a good tutorial around).

    I would like to use pCP. so therefore my question: Do you have any advice what Ddisplay to buy (i don't want to spent much money on it)? What do you think about the "waveshare" Displays?

    Thanks for your input.

    As far as I'm aware the official 7" display is the only display that works OOTB on Pcp

    Mine works fine and has done for years now, I suspect the Pi or the screen you have is faulty

    Mine also worked fine for some time. But since some days i have this problem. Even using max2play (which is based on Raspbian). So far i played around with the white cable connecting dispalay and pi without success.
    So far i did not check the connection between display and controller. I never touched those they should be fine.

    Maybe try a new white cable, they are cheap on ebay

    Yes, the rpi display works out of the box. There are extra drivers to control the touch and backlight brightness, but nothing needed to display.

    The waveshare devices are ok, but need some tinkering to get them to work with jivelite. there are a few threads around talking about waveshare configuration.

    What do we need to do to enable touch and backlight?

    Have you supplied power to the screen with the jumper cables ?

    The pi and screen are jumped, and the power is connected in the screen usb jack.

    I have another sd card with raspbian that has the touch working, but on piCorePlayer I don't get touch. It does display.
    The power supply is 3A

    If I took a working picoreplayer card from a pi1b instead of starting from scratch, am I shooting myself in the foot? Would it be any different if I start over?

    I always power my screen from the gpio not the USB I seem to remember that if you power the screen via USB FROM the Pi it dosent work

    I THINK if you power the pi from the Screen VIA USB it does.

    I've never had a problem with a screen with pCP

    What I have experienced so far is similar. Powering from the Pi USB doesn't power the screen correctly (nothing visible, pi illuminates and seems to boot) - powering from the screen USB seems to be working good.

    I will try with a fresh install of piCorePlayer in case the one I used was somewhat altered to prevent correct detection.
