5.6, 5.7 or 5.8 screens for a Rasberry Pi

Hi there, anybody know where to get 5.6. 5.7or 5.8 screens for a rasberry pi? im customising a portable television for an art project. also any suggestions in 4:3 ratio would be appreciated

Hi Tristan,

We don’t have a ton of options around that size, but here’s a 5" 16:9 Pi Display:

If you were willing to go up to 7", and just not display video for the widescreen portions of the screen, then there are a few more options:

That should be enough to give you an idea of if it’s feasable, maybe you could post a diagram of what you’re thinking of so far?

Keen to see what you do with this!

Thanks James, the portbable TV im converting is pretty tight so not enough room for a 7". May have found one overseas.

Hi James,

I’ve just submitted a new issue. I’m having trouble with my 5inch wave share. I’ve only used it 3 times and its stopped working. Any tips on getting it going would be great.

Thanks
