3.5" Display - No Luck

Hi all,

Fairly new to Raspberry Pi / Linux / Electronics. Recently purchased a Raspberry Pi 3 B and have been having great fun with it.

Purchased this 3.5" display and am having no luck getting it to work.

Once I fit it onto the GPIO, it displays all white - good, it’s getting power.

I run curl -L http://coreelec.io/2q | bash as per the product description page - it downloads, unzips, and runs the contents of the package.

I first attempted this on a RetroPie install - it did nothing, video was still coming through HDMI.

Next I tried on a Raspbian install - it disabled the HDMI, but the LCD still just displayed all white. I was able to restore HDMI video using the LCD_hdmi script as per the product description page.

Finally, I created a fresh NOOBS microSD, installed Raspbian Lite, ran the curl command - same as with the Raspbian install. It seems to do what it’s supposed to, then it reboots, doesn’t output to HDMI, and the LCD never changes from solid white.

Any ideas?

It may be worth mentioning that the screen I received doesn’t look exactly the same as the one pictured on the Core Electronics shop - I don’t know if that makes any difference or not. The one I received is pictured here:

In the end I got everything working using a mixture of http://ozzmaker.com/piscreen-driver-install-instructions-2/ and https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=178443 - but the “one line install” provided on the product page definitely did not work for this display.
