This display can be mounted on a Raspberry Pi 1, 2, 3 or 4 via an HDMI connector, but requires additional driver installation.
The display has a resolution of 800*480 pixels and is diagonally 5 inches. On top of the display is a resistive touchscreen mounted for which a small stylus is included.
An example is visible in the images.
* Note: as of 19-08-2020 an HDMI connector for the Raspberry Pi 1, 2 and 3 and a separate HDMI connecter for the Raspberry Pi 4 is provided.
We have only tested the display in combination with a Raspberry Pi 3B with the Raspbian operating system according to the following manual:
To install the driver, you need:
- Raspberry Pi 2B or 3B with Raspbian installed (via NOOBS!)
- The 5 inch LCD screen
- An internet connection on the Raspberry Pi
- A keyboard and mouse (connected to the Raspberry Pi)
- An external display with HDMI that is plug-and-play compatible with your Rasperry Pi (e.g. a TV or monitor)
- A backup of your Raspbian operating system (especially the boot/config.txt file) if it goes wrong!
Note:The installation of the driver overwrites the boot/config.txt file so that the display works correctly.
If you have previously made adjustments to this file, you will have to add these adjustments again after installation.
STEP 1 - Install the driver
1. Start the Raspberry Pi in Raspbian (with TV/monitor, mouse and keyboard connected)
2. Open the terminal and download the following driver package with the following command:
git clone https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show.git
3. Set the read/write settings for the folder with the following command:
chmod -R 755 LCD show
Note: Go directly to step 9 if you did NOT install Rapbian via NOOBS! (but used the standard image)
4. Go to this folder in the driver package:
5. Adjust the cmdline.txt file in the driver package (otherwise the RPi will stop running!). Use the following command:
6. Adjust the "root =/dev/mmcblk0p2" section in the text file to "root =/dev/mmcblk0p7" (change the "2" to a "7")
7. Once adjusted press the "Ctrl + X" key combination, then the "Y" key followed by the Enter key (overwrites the file and saves it with the adjustment)
8. Go back to the root:
9. Go to this folder in the driver package:
10. Start the driver with the following command:
sudo ./ LCD5 show
The Raspberry Pi will now restart and Raspbian will switch to the LCD screen as the main screen at startup.
To restore the default configuration, type and run the following command's in the terminal:
Note: After switching back to HDMI, the resolution may not be correct. We do not have a solution here at the moment except for restoring the backup.
STEP 2 - Calibrate the touch screen (optional)
The touchscreen will work fine at the moment, but perhaps it is still not accurate enough. You can do a calibration for this.
To do this, download the zip file with manuals under the tab "Downloads and Links". Extract the zip file and open the pdf file "How to calibrate the touch screen (En) .pdf".
Follow the steps described in this document to perform the calibration.
