To help celebrating Pimoroni’s fifth birthday (hurray!) I’ve ordered a HyperPixel which I got today in my mail. Installation, both hardware and software, went totally smooth – as I have come to expect from Pimoroni.
Unfortunately, while the screen does respond precise to touch in most of its regions, there’s a small rectangular region near the right edge, starting below mid height and extending down for around one centimeter, where it does not register any touch. It is exactly the region where the “OK” button from this infamous “SSH is enabled and the default password…yadayadayada” goes. It’s a “blind” spot to touch, approx 2cm x 1cm next to the right border. In all other places touch works as expected.
See also this short take: https://youtu.be/ZPvskkbE54s – touching the OK button doesn’t work at all. But after I moved the dialog with its button much to the left, touching works in the other region.
Now what to do?
