HyperPixel 2.1 Round faulty touch


I’ve bought a second hyperpixel round display, and I’m seeing spurious touch events happening constantly. At first I thought it might be the clear plastic cover causing the issue, but I removed that and tested again against a clean screen, still the same problem.

As I already have one of these screens I’m pretty familiar with getting touch working both with Pimoroni’s example code and my own custom i2c software, so I’m sure its something device related, is there anything I can try before I return the unit as faulty?



Did you ever sort this out? I am have exactly the same issue with my own. I would really like to find out that there is something simple I have missed rather than it be a malfunctioning screen.

I ended up returning the unit for a replacement.
