7″ Touch Screen – Connect the GPIO

To connect the original Raspberry Pi 7 inch touch display you have to use the right GPIO pins.

Now it depends on which additional board is used or only the Raspberry Pi. The jumper cable always are connected with gpio pin 1 and 5 of the display board (5V and GROUND)
