So I bought a hyperpixel 4.0 not that long ago for a project and when I downloaded the software for it worked perfectly but now I tried to download the software again en it failed, I have tried this multiple times and it is not working at all I have almost everything can somebody please help me?
Could you be more specific, is it the software download that’s failing, or the screen after the fact? What steps are you using to install the software, what errors - if any - do you see?
so I’ve downloaded it successfully on with no errors on multiple raspberry pi’s but the screen wouldn’t be working so i think it’s the screen that’s not working but i can’t understand why
Are you able to access the Pi (via SSH or otherwise) and look at the output of
dmesg and also the contents of
/boot/config.txt? Are you sure you’re downloading the
hyperpixel4 code and not the
hyperpixel code, also?
I am able to access the pi with SSH normally and the`/boot/config.txt file is as following
# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default “safe” mode
# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan
# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border
# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display’s size minus
# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output
# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)
# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes
# uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display
# uncomment for composite PAL
#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.
# Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces
# Uncomment this to enable the lirc-rpi module
# Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)
hdmi_timings=480 0 10 16 59 800 0 15 113 15 0 0 0 60 0 32000000 6
and I installed it with the one line download, the GitHub installer and by downloading the master file from GitHub putting it in the sd card in the right location and then unzipping it from the terminal
Are you sure you’ve got a HyperPixel 4, and not the previous model?
yes I did have the hyperpixel 4 but it doesn’t matter anymore i’ve already returned it I think it just stopped working,
still thanks for your help
