3.5 LCD (fb_ili9486 ) - still not working after days of trying

Post by bassie127 »

I have been trying for about 3 day's, to get this display working.
The display is probably a clone of waveshare.
I also searched this forum, but still without succes. How somebody can help me!

Configuration:
DietPi v6.31.2 : 20:19 - Wed 08/05/2020
- Device model : RPi 4 Model B (armv7l)
- HDMII monitor attached
- 3.5 LCD attached via GPIO

Problem
- screen stays white

/boot/config.txt contains:

Code: Select all

hdmi_force_hotplug=1
dtparam=spi=on
dtparam=audio=on
dtoverlay=waveshare35a
/boot/overlays contains among others:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2682 Aug 5 13:50 /boot/overlays/waveshare35a.dtbo
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2682 Aug 5 13:50 /boot/overlays/waveshare35a-overlay.dtb
