    Hi I have an origonal PiScreen and am having issues getting it to work on a new install of raspbian.

    I have tried the method listed here without success, i even put the old SDCard in booted it up with working PiScreen and copied the /boot/config.txt and /boot/cmdline.txt lines of code and added to the new install and still nothing.

    I was able to get the touch screen to work on the new build but alas no display.

    If anyone has the method to get it working I would appreiciate the help.

    Cheers

    Do you see anything on the screen at all?

    What about if you configure your Pi to boot to CLI only? do you see the CLI?
    (Do "sudo raspi-config" and change the boot option to CLI-Autologin)
