    So.. I took the Piscreen from a Raspberry Pi which was working - tested it before I disconnected the screen. I plugged the PiScreen into the Pi2 - at the very end of the (larger Pi2) connector.

    I followed the instructions here.

    PiScreen Driver Install Instructions

    I have a fully up to date Raspberry Pi2.

    Nothing - I tried with the hdmi monitor lead removed - nothing.

    The screen is switched on - I got that right from testing the original Pi....

    But nothing - not a thing out of the screen./

    Any ideas for what to try next?

    Hi... can you show me a picture of how you have it connected via the ribbon cable.

    Have you tried to place the PiScreen directly on top of the GPIO pins?
    Even though PiScreen only has a 26 pin header, it still fits okay on top of the Pi 2 40 pin header.

    Certainly can - here it is... yes, the screen (on the original pi) was just plugged into the connector - ie sitting on top of the Pi - so I've assumed, even though the Pi2 connector is larger, that it sits in the same place on top of the outermost pins so it still fits evenly over the Pi2.

    Here's the pic included.
