Overview

Fastest 2.8 inch Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi Zero /W and Raspberry pi 3 model b+ /3B/2B/B+/CM3 etc,Super HD 640x480 Resolution,60+ fps

Perfect fit your Pi zero/ zero w, PORTABLE MONITOR

Customized circuit board for 2.8-inch

High speed Raspberry Pi screen

Working Current: 100 mA

Notice: Not including Raspberry Pi zero / Pi zero W board

In fact, this screen fits to Raspberry Pi 3B/2B/B+; but you must use the bread cables to connect them, because it's male pins on the this screen, and it's male pins on the pi 3B also;

For linux kernel 4.9 (old)

Download File:Mzdpi-vga-4.9.x.zip, and unzip it;

Copy the mzdpi.dtbo to the directory /boot/overlays, and copy the the other files to directory /boot;

then restart the raspberry pi;

Note: We only test the screen on Raspbian OS and Retropie now;

For Version-B

What is the purpose of the NEW 2.8 inch display pins VBAT, AUX (with jumper), PWM and left-side pins ?

1.VBAT and AUX are the ADC inputs of the XPT2046 and can be used to measure voltage. The XPT2046 is a touch control chip.

2.The PWM pin is the control pin of the backlight. The brightness of the PMW signal can be adjusted externally.

3.The left-side pins (on New Version B photo) is no use.

FAQ of Version-B

Question: 1. How is it possible to control the backlight brightness with the pins on the back? Can I use an adjustable resistor? Do I need to solder those pins to the raspberry and use some software?

/How is it possible to turn off the screen in software on the raspberry? Is there a command? An external switch with the pins on the back? Perhaps just turning down the brightness to 0 level?

Answer:

1. Please use the short circuiter to connect the pin of PWM and GPIO 18, then can control the backlight brightness by software.

2.The Raspberry Pi GPIO 18 can output the signal of PWM.

3.When the GPIO 18 output low level (PWM duty cycle is 0), the backlight is off.

Question:

2.Is this screen is SPI? Or HDMI? 16 bit color or 24 or 32?

Answer:

The 2.8inch screen is consist of display screen and touch screen, The display screen is DPI, and the touch screen is SPI.And it is 16 bit color and RGB565 mode.

For Version-C

Update of the Version C:

FAQ of Version-C

Question 1:

Why the LCD cannot light up?

Answer:

(1)It is directly control via software:

sudo raspi-gpio set 18 op dh (turn on the backlight)

sudo raspi-gpio set 18 op dl (turn off the backlight)

(2)Or you could add

gpio=18=op,dh

into the config.txt. then the backlight will be turned on as soon as the system is running.

Hi, I've run through what broken instructions I was able to find and the screen backlight comes on, but no display.

This UI is not compatible with ALLO (mini) BOSS DAC by HW. In Volumio I was not able to turn the UI into operation due to (I guess) kernel/settings limitations. In Moode Audio I was able to have the UI working but then the DAC was not working. I was able to remove one conflict - Backlight PWM control on pin 18 is used by ALLO mini BOSS DAC to be enabled. I used 40pin cable and switched lines 17 and 18, then changed pin 17 to 18 for configuration control. Unfortunately, when both components are activated in /boot/config.txt, the DAC is failing and you get Alsa HW error when trying to play a song. My guess is SPI. Config.txt: disable_splash=1 disable_overscan=1 hdmi_drive=2 hdmi_blanking=1 hdmi_force_edid_audio=1 hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_group=0 dtparam=i2c_arm=on dtparam=i2s=on dtparam=audio=off dtoverlay=allo-boss-dac-pcm512x-audio

Hello, Geekworm team and community! I've got the Version-A display (without additional right-side pins on the back). How is it possible to control the backlight brightness or turn off the screen in software or configuration files on the Raspberry? It is possible turn off the backlight by disconnect +5V wire? Or maybe it is possible to solder wire to the tracks on the back of the board and plug to the not connected GPIO18 Raspberry pin?

I hope for your help, thanks.

So the issue with the Blue/Yellow appears to be when the serial driver loads, it for some reason resets GPIO 7 & 8. So the setting that the vendor put in /boot/config.txt gets overridden.

So, I put the following mini startup script in to run on boot. Script location-name: /etc/systemd/system/fixgpio.service Script contents below:

[Unit] Description=fix gpio for screen

[Service] Type=simple ExecStart=/usr/bin/raspi-gpio set 7-8 a2

I also tried using version C with raspberry pi zero w (Raspbian Buster) and it didn't work.

Is there a way to test the display without plugging into raspberry pi? i.e how do i tell if it's a fault display or driver issue?

Hi friend, Do you mean the LCD cannot light up? (1)It is directly control via software: sudo raspi-gpio set 18 op dh (turn on the backlight) sudo raspi-gpio set 18 op dl (turn off the backlight)

(2)Or you could add

gpio=18=op,dh

into the config.txt. then the backlight will be turned on as soon as the system is running.

Best regards,

Hi, Do you mean the LCD cannot light up?

Answer:

This screen need configuration to be work. GPIO18 should be connected to the 12th pin of 40PIN.

And should add

gpio=18=op,dh,pd

in the config.txt.

Sudo raspi-gpio set 18 op dh turn on the backlight Sudo raspi-gpio set 18 op dl turn off the backlight

Hi, I am also having the same issue with Rasbian Buster, yellow whites and blue blacks.

Anyone had luck fixing this? Perhaps the developer could assist?

Thank-you. That is much better. When I run those commands it is fixed!

Is there a way to fix the colour from start up? (the boot screen is still yellow/blue)

Is there any reason that this can't be used with a normal raspberry pi?
