Picade 10inch Screen Problems

Can someone please help my son he has wired up his picade (see below) Does it look right to you??? Because he is getting nothing on the screen. Should he be getting anything on the screen???
Thanks in advance.


I don’t see anything obvious.

Try adding hdmi_force_hotplug=1 to the config.txt file
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

This may help

We are complete newbies to this where would I add this??? I really need a step by step of the computer side of it.

Try adding hdmi_force_hotplug=1 to the config.txt file
sudo nano /boot/config.txt

If you plug the SD Card into a PC, ignore the “must be formatted prompt” close that with the X. There will be a config.txt file on the fat32 Boot partition. You can edit that with a text editor and just add the hdmi_force_hotplug=1 line to the end of the file and save it.
On the Pi, you open a terminal window and run
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
then look for and change
or scroll to the bottom and add the
Press ctrl and x, then answer y and hit enter to save the edit.

Any line in the config.txt file with a # at the beginning is treated as a comment and ignored. remove the # and that line is acted apone on boot up. The config.txt file is kind of like a PC’s BIOS setup. Sort of kind of.

Thank you for the reply we will give it a go tomorrow and let you know how we get off. Thanks once again.
