I just got my official touchscreen in the mail.

I plugged it in and the display works fine, but the the touch is not working.

I did everything said here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK-w-wDvRTg and here http://www.mkcastor.com/2015/09/10/raspberry-pi-7-touchscreen-setup-review-and-case-design/ (minus usb power instead of the jumpers)

In the second article it mentions that if the touchscreen is not working I should try rebooting.

I have tried:

  • sudo reboot -n
  • disconnecting the power to reboot
  • disassembling everything and assembling it again
  • tried apt-get update, upgrade, reboot

Anyone have any thoughts on what else I can try?
(I am using a rasbpi B+ v1.2 vanilla Raspbian)

Edit: I have now tried it on a PI Model 2 B and the touch screen works fine. However, my B+ still does not work with the touch screen though.

  • Could you edit your question and summarise what you have tried. It's expecting too much of people to trawl through youtube videos and tutorials on your behalf. Have you done a recent sudo apt get update, sudo apt-get upgrade? Have you done sudo rpi-update?

I had a problem with display in general. I tried to update etc, but did not work until reinstall particular libraries following official tutorial. Try:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libraspberrypi0 libraspberrypi-{bin,dev,doc} raspberrypi-bootloader
sudo reboot
  • Thanks for linking to the official tutorial, I hadn't seen it, and it suggested the fix to my issue (for using the original model A or B, you need to add connections to the i2c pins and modify config.txt)
