lcd problem ( white screen)
Same problem here. When playing with the "backlight" app included in qtopia it sometimes gets back to normal, but it's very annoying.
Mine is doing it as well all the time I can just see the screen on a very sharp angle I have tried everything and this compnay will not help at all I have even asked for a refund,, I guess I will just keep posting everywhere that this thing does not work its to bad to becuase it looks like a very nice system
Nikita I can only contact the company via email ,, where did you get yours? I have sent 4 emails pleading with them for help I am really pissed ,, the thing is I think this system is really nice if it will work cusotmer service however is ridiculous I would have to warn anyone not to buy this
I bought mine here: http://cgi.ebay.com/mini2440-S3C2440-ARM9-Board-3-5-TFT-LCD-Touch-Screen...
Hi Nikita, Who bares for the postal chargesfor the replacement in this case? I also have a similar problem myself..
Hi, It's a matter of agreement between you and the seller, I think. In my case, the seller returned all postal costs.
Hello everybody, seems I have a similar problem. I found no -5.5V suppli on my T35 TFT board, chip U6 (mc34063) is hot and seems not works. May be just replace this chip, I will try to do this today or tomorow.
Hi everybody. I have the same problem a couple of days ago. My MINI2440's power supply fais and I used a Fonera's one, with an output of 7,5V. I thought that the LCD control board would have an internal regulator but later I noticed that's not true. The 5 volts from the main board (in this case 7.5V) comes into the LCD AVDD pin directly and in the datasheet I've seen the max value for this input is around 6V. All the board runs OK, and I can see the image if I put it in some angle. the "test points" of the LCD board that marks 10V and -5.5V are OK, but the 20V test point of my board only have 6.36V. I think the problem is the LCD (ref. TD035STED4) and I'm going to buy some new one, but first I would like if anyone can tellme it's opinion. Can be the LCD board or this is a LCD module fail? Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.
Hi javieralso! Do you try to disconnect LCD flat cable and check 20V test point again? If voltage in range, then LCD is damaged, I think. best regards, Sergio
Hi Serg_io (this name sounds like a spanish speak name and I'm spanish....) I tested this 20V whitout the LCD connected and it's about 6,33V. The 10V test point is about 8,55V. The max value for AVDD (Analogic supply for the LCD) is 6V as I've read into the datasheet and I connected it to 7,5V. I think it's time for a pray for my LCD soul... R.I.P. :-( The problem is that I don't know if the LCD board is damaged too (I think it's not damaged, but I don't know)
Hi javieralso! No, I'm from Ukraine :). About your LCD: by my oppinion you have damaged LCD board, because you are see some image on the display and low voltage can produce low contrast. First of all you need to restore 20V without LCD connected and then check all together.
Hi Serg_io. I'll try to restore the 20V as you said when I get some free time. I'll tell you my results. Thanks for your suggest!! :-D
javieralso, did you managed to fix your LCD contrast? i saw many people with the same problem, but nobody managed to fix it.... Best Regards
Guys, i changed the LCD itself and everything worked fine.... The LCD Controller Board had no problem at all.... Hope this help someone... Best Regards!!
Hi everybody. After a year since my LCD problem I changed U4 (TL431(A)CD), U5 and U6 (MC34063AD), and finally U8 (TL047CID), but my problem persist (the screen is all white). I checked the voltages in the tests points and all are OK but the 20V that still have about 6.36V, so I decided to change the LCD itself (TD035STED4) without solve my problem. When I start the board, the screen flashes and is all dark. Later when the linux kernel boots, the screen turns all white and I can see any image on it. Looking at the LCD module' schematic I've noticed that U9 is a microcontroller with some kind of firmware running on it. It's possible that this microcontroller were damaged? I thought that maybe some kernel configuration issue too. Is it possible? Thanks in advance. Happy 2012.
Hi folks! I've found another thread with a solution: http://www.friendlyarm.net/forum/topic/534 I can't believe this problem is happening so often and FriendlyARM is doing nothing to solve it... Regards
Hello people. Would you mind mentioning which LCD is giving you a problem? T35, N35, X35, W35? ARMWorks has a 2 year warranty, which is an advantage over the eBay sources. First, have you reseated the FFC cables and the oval connector? Also, there is a jumper to the left of the FFC connector. The jumper connects the two pins most left - closest to the front of the board with DB9, etc. The voltage on the right hand is for Hiteg MegaLCD and none of the FriendlyARM displays at this time. Anyone have the jumper int he wrong place?

Hi, I bought mini2440 kit includes mini2440 and 7"LCD 1 GB RAM. But the problem is I got LCD A70i-1501 rather than LCD A70i-1044. So please let m know what are the differences between those two and mainly whether they have solved white screen problem in the latest one are not. Waiting for your valuable information Thank you
Excuse-me because i dont speak inglish very well but I hope to help someone. So the solution for this problem is simple,you just need to conect the 5V(after of regulator) supply of main board direct to 5V on the lcd board.This solve completly the problem.My board is a Micro 2440 lcd 7",for this sdk i conect the pin 3 of U14 on mainboard to pin 3 of U4 on Lcd Board.For other sdk i beleave that solve to.
