Pi 4 with the 7” display

Hi. I am a noob. Wanting to connect via the USB power ports rather than the GPIO pins. I see that the display is a USB b port. Is there a dual cable c an b available. Could only find a duel USB b one cheers Greg

Hey Greg,


Just to confirm was this the display you’re talking about? And are you wanting to power the display from the USB rather than the GPIO?

From Bryce

That is correct

Hey Greg,

So all that you need to do to power the Pi and display is to connect the pins labelled 5V and GND to pins 2 and 6 on the Pi…

You can do this by using the jumpers in the pack and then power the display board through the power input (USB type C) and the setup should be good to go!

Cheers

Greg
