Hi all, this is my first post. I included a photo of the issue I’m encountering - basically the display will only display snow, like when analog cable used to go out and you’d only see black and white snow on the TV.
I removed the 8-pin header on the display to slim it down, and I’m using GPIO to connect it to the RPi0W. I did not solder all male GPIO pins to the Pi, I only soldered the pins required per the pinout of the Waveshare.
I am using a Rev.2.1 display and a PiSugar battery. This issue occurs when I use an external battery, so bypassing the PiSugar doesn’t resolve anything.
I’m really frustrated because no one seems to have display issues - but here we are. …Could this be a faulty board? I can’t imagine removing the 8-pin header would have caused this? Waveshare support offered no assistance.
Would it be beneficial to solder all male header pins onto my Pi even though the display pinout only uses 8 pins? I just want my pwnagotchi to have a face and I truly do not want to spend another $20 + 1 month waiting on a new display before I know for certain this one is faulty.
