Orange Pi Zero LCD display (RPi)

Recommended Posts


 I bought a 3.5 inch RPi LCD display from here: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32965280840.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.2a474c4dxALiQy

I connected the display straight to my Orange Pi zero board. The slot on the Orange Pi Zero is flipped compared to RPi so the LCD display goes outside the board. I guess that is the right way to connect. Anyway, when I power on the board I can see illuminated screen.

 The problem is that everything I have tried to configure the LCD was unsuccessful. I am trying with the Armbian image mentioned in this web site: http://www.orangepi.org/orangepibbsen/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=3773  (Armbian_5.35_Orangepizero_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113.7z). When I execute the command "modprobe fbtft_device custom name=fb_ili9486 gpios=dc:18,reset:2 speed=16000000 busnum=1 rotate=270", I can see a new device /dev/fb8 but then "con2fbmap 1 8" does nothing - just the same blank illuminated screen. I also tried with various settings for "dc" and "reset" based on what I found on the forums.


 Any idea if this device is supported on Orange Pi Zero? Also what can I do to troubleshoot the problem further?



Board: Orangepi Zero
