I have for many years been using the official Raspberry Pi touchscreen with a Model B+ Pi. I recently upgraded the OS to Bullseye and the touch screen no longer displays anything.

When I boot the Pi I get the initial rainbow screen then the splash screen and then a blank screen. The screen is dimply lit, not black, but shows nothing more. I have tried a number of things from upgrading firmware to reminaging the SD card but nothing seems to work.

The Pi works fine when plugged into a normal HDMI monitor.

My system is as follows.

pi@raspberrypi:~/C $ cat /proc/cpuinfo

  • " I recently upgraded the OS to Bullseye" DESPITE the official recommendation. "Linux raspberrypi 5.10.81+" an experimental kernel. Do a fresh install.

Issue can be resolved as a work around with the following line placed in /boot/config.txt

dtparam=i2c_vc_baudrate=50000

It is on ongoing issue with the Pi in general.

You could try this:

Edit /boot/config.txt.

In [pi4] section, comment out the dtoverlay statement thus:

[pi4]
#dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d

Then uncomment the corresponding line in the [all] section below:

[all]
dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d
