Powering the HDMI 8'' LCD screen



I just received the HDMI 8’’ LCD screen and I have to say that works great. It is also very convenient the wire to power the LCD using a free USB port in the raspberry pi. But I would like to free this USB port and I wonder if it is possible to power the LCD screen from the GPIO pins of the raspberry pi and how.



Hi Adrian

It is more than possible to power the 8" lcd from the GPIO. I fact first retail units has a JST to female Pin cable to attach it to the GPIO.
