    Installed the 7″ display but can’t get anything on it. AMP+ installed; music works via inept. Everything seems ok in setup rasp 7″ screen selected. Any help appreciated.

      I have the same problem – 7″ screen is blank. Any help out there?

        Hi TJ,
        Please make sure the microSD with 7 inch display image burnt on it is already in the Pi upon booting the screen, otherwise it stays blank. Also try out Ian’s suggestion of updating all packages.

    Try the update all packages button on the raspberry settings tab. I had the same issue and even installed a clean build. This fixed it for me.

    I never could get the pre-built m2p_rpi_7inch_display_2.23.img image to work.
    The screen would stay blank no mater what I tried even after updating the M2P software to version 2.27 or the latest beta version.
    I ended up having to use the m2p_default_226_wps.img and build everything the long way.
    As soon as I used the m2p_default_226_wps.img my screen started to work fine.

      Hello Ryan,

      Thank you for your comment.

      We cannot reproduce this problem unfortuneately. Both the image we ship together with the 7″ display bundle and the image available in our download section (version 2.23) work as expected with our test devices. We are going to replace the image with an up to date one and hope to eliminate this problem that way.

      Have you noticed anything unusual while installing the first image in comparison to the second one?

    I would like to add a different display(non-touch, Choose: ILI9488, Size:3.95inch, Resolution: 320 x 480) to Raspberry Pi 2 which is not listed in your supported tft lcd lists.
    Here goes the driver of the lcd I would like to use:
    Link from where I got the LCD :

    I would like to attach this Lcd and work with it.
    Any help would be appreciated.
