I'm trying to connect my Raspberry Pi 4B to a HANNspree ht161hnb touch monitor. It's a first time use with a sd cart with NOOBS(I'm new to Raspberry Pi) It's booting up (I see a "For recovery mode press shift" screen) then immediately it goes to "No Signal". I tried both hdmi ports. I am powering the monitor with the original 12v adapter. I connected an USB cable back to the Pi. https://www.hannspree.eu/product/ht-161-hnb/ What can be the problem?

  • Welcome. Any reason you are using NOOBS? I would jump straight into Raspbian to save issues. You could try the other hdmi port on the Pi. How are you powering the monitor? Does it have a USB connection back to the Pi? Do you have a link to the manual if no one has one here? You can edit your question to put these details in rather than using comments. – Andyroo May 26 at 22:03
  • I’m now able to install Rasbian OS on my sd card while connected to my Hannspree. I can follow it on the screen, but after installation it returns to the same; No signal??! – Guillaumeprints London May 29 at 12:23
  • Possibly it's the resolution or data coming back from the monitor baffling the Pi. I would try adding hdmi_ignore_cec=1 to /bot/config.txt and see if that helps. If not it's a case of going through raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/video.md to set the monitor spec in config.txt – Andyroo May 29 at 17:58
  • I added hdmi_ignore_cec=1 to config.txt, but this is not the solution. I'm thinking to connect the Pi to my working (not touch-test) monitor. – Guillaumeprints London May 31 at 19:25

I have had the same problem with the same monitor and i use a raspberry pi 4, with my configuration works. This is my config.txt file:

# For more options and information see
# http://rpf.io/configtxt
# Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode

# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan

# uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
# goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus
# overscan.

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)

# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes

# uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display

# uncomment for composite PAL

#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

# Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces

# Uncomment this to enable infrared communication.

# Additional overlays and parameters are documented /boot/overlays/README

# Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)

# Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver on top of the dispmanx display stack

    And what is different from the default settings of /boot/config.txt? Can you please explain a bit more? – Ingo 2 days ago
  • I have tried with safe_mode unabled and the monitor work but at limited resolution. – Alfredo 2 hours ago
  • I have tried with safe_mode enabled and the monitor work but at limited resolution. Reading the official guide raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/video.md i have found the correct configuration using only some parameters enabled by safe_mode. – Alfredo 2 hours ago
