Try providing power to the screen separately from the Pi. As in, with a power supply plugged into the microUSB on the touchscreen controller board and NO jumper to the Pi board. Two power supplies, one for the pi and one for the screen (and no +5v/gnd jumpers between the two). If that works then you have a power supply problem with the one you've been using.

  • I solve it . It was a power supply problem , I use 12V/2A adapter Commented Mar 31, 2017 at 16:22
  • Yep, lots of power supplies used for Pi setups really don't have enough power when it comes to adding accessories onto the Pi.
