I couldn’t get my pitft 2.2 to work and I assumed I had screwed the screen as everytime I installed the software over my current rasbian distro I would encounter the following problem:
After installing and rebooting I would get the very initial boot up come through the hdmi to my tv and then it will disappear, I assume this is because it’s trying to use the pitft.
As I couldn’t see the command line on my TV or anything I had to format my SD card and reload rasbian onto it and start all over again. I kept trying but couldn’t get it to work so I put it down to the fact I broke the pitft with my dodgy soldering.
I have since bought another pitft and managed to solder the header on with no issues this time. Plugged it into the pi, installed the software into my current distro and yet again I have the same problem.
The issue I have now is that I don’t really fancy formatting my SD card again as I have only just managed to get my unicorn hat working.
Please are you able to shed any light on what exactly it is I’m doing wrong and let me know if there is a alway to get the pi to output through the hdmi without having to format the SD card?
Thanks for you help!
