Using the LCD with your Raspberry Pi

Get Started

Download LCD drivers: LCD Driver by waveshare (need network when installing)

e.g. if the directory is "/home/pi" then you need to use the command "cd /home/pi"

After you run the command, the system will automatically restart and switch to the LCD display.


Restore Output to HDMI

cd /home/pi/LCD-show/ sudo ./LCD-hdmi

Note: When using the LCD display driver be sure to power off the system using software rather than switching the power off abruptly to avoid damage to the LCD.
