Raspberry Pi Config Screen
Complete newbie here. I bought a Raspberry Pi for my little sister as she is a budding coder. However, after installing the image onto the machine, we have been having problems with the screen as half of it is cut off.
I was told by the people we bought it off to make 'config changes' and then sent this set of instructions. I have to say I am confused. Please would some bright spark translate the instructions for me in laymans terms.
I hope someone can help as my sister is very eager to get started on her new computer.
- Download the file from the linked website, and unzip the file. Once it's unzipped, there is a file ending in ".img".
- Take the TF card, and connect it to the computer. You should use this program to format the card. The program should give you instructions on how to do this.
- Use this program, select the ".img" file from step 1, and click "Write".
- When it finishes, open the TF card in your file explorer. There should be a file called "config.txt". Open it, write the config bits to the end of the file, save it, and close the editing program.
- Take the TF card out, and put it into the Pi.
- Turn on the backlight switch on the back of the LCD/screen.
- Use an appropriate connector to connect the "Touch" port on the LCD to the USB port on the Pi.
- Use an appropriate connector to connect the "HDMI" port on the LCD to the same-shape port on the Pi.
- Turn on the Pi, and wait a few seconds for the LCD to work properly.
