New here and newbie, I’d like to know if possible where I can find the right drivers for my Raspberry PI Display 3,5 inch DDMILCD 18BIT version 1.1 2017/7/1 for Raspbian and others.
Thanks in advance.
Hello, Do you mean you order our LCD and get version 1.1 and want the driver? Do you try the driver in our instructions and it works or not?
I notice some screen-tearing (diagonal pattern) when playing games or videos; is there some way I can fix this?
When connecting an external device to the LCD via HDMI, the 3.5jack sound only works in the left channel.
With raspberries also sound only in the left channel.
When connecting 3.5jack to raspberry sound in both channels.
A small mistake! not from the left channel, but from the right!
Continuation of the previous question:
when checking with cs4334k – also the sound is only from one contact 5
Hi, I just got the screen and it works perfectly with rpi3. The only problem is i’m using win 10 IoT core and the touch pad doesn’t work. How can i get a driver for the win 10 IoT?
There is just touch driver for raspbian, Ubuntu and Kali.
Hello, i recently bought the LCD 3.5″ Screen and i can’t install the driver correctly on a Ubuntu Mate 16.04.
I follwed the instructions for driver, with the same results, blank screen.
I download 2 diffrents images of ubuntu, from this page and from KeDei.
Please i need some help.
Thanks in advance
Are you willing to try other guide for this LCD: https://osoyoo.com/2017/01/18/install-3-5-hdmi-touch-screen-linux-driver-on-raspberry-pi/?
What’s more, are you willing to take a photo to send to my email address: [email protected]?
Hi, thanks for the reply.
I’d followed the guide you send me. With the very same result. Blank Screen.
I install start from scratch with a clean Ubuntu Mate 16.04. I download the driver (LCD_show_35hdmi.tar.gz) to a USB and copy to the Rpi. The result is the same.
I pretiate any help.
I download the ubuntu image and taht is the only way i can use the screen.
I’m in a IoT proyect, and is needed a screen of this size.
This proyect needs to run in ubuntu mate 16.
Does the LCD show when you just install ubuntu mate 16? Please don’t install the touch driver?
I want to confirm whether the hardware of LCD works well.
Hello, i’m the leader of a project that use this display and n RFID RC522 Card reader, that uses the SPI interface too.
My questions, It’s possible to connect this 2 devices together? Can you send me the pins used by the display?
Any technical reference about this will be appretiated.
Thanks in advance
Yes,of course,you can use the 2 devices together,it is HDMI port on this display, you can connect the display and RPI via HDMI cable.
Hi, the model i bought is not the one with HDMI connection. I can only connect it to the GPIO, it has 2 connector, 1 of 4 (2×2) and one of 8 (2×4).
The first one uses the pins 1 to 4, the sencond the pins 19 to 26.
we suggest you’d better try another display for your project, like 1602 LCD display.

Hola he adquirido una pantalla tactil 3.5 lcd para raspberry pi 3, y no se que imagen utilizar o como instalarla. que tutorial debo seguir. saludos
datos de la pantalla 3,5 inch spi tftlcd
480 x 320 16 bit/18 bit
version 4.0 2016/1/1
I have followed all the steps using the correct software (and tried using two different SD cards). When I boot the raspberry pi the screen shows “Kernel Panic: VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (179,2).”
Can you please let me know what is going wrong here?
I downloaded the customized Ubuntu image. Install went ok, touch screen is working but I am not able to use sudo due to not having the root password. The installation did not provide an opportunity to create a password. What is the default password for this image?
Thanks in advance,
