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.
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.
