I bought the screen from Fry's electronics, ran me about $70. You can get it off of amazon too: https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Pi-7-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B0153R2A9I/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1496890949&sr=8-3&keywords=raspberry+pi+screen+7+inch
Right now the screen is $73 on amazon
Microcenter was always great prices for computer/electronic parts also their microcontroller section grew alot they have a whole section dedicated to it. Also the Pi was $5 off too.
Hey everyone i currently have this 7 Inch touchscreen and would like to use it as a secondary monitor in my pc. I was wondering what I need to do since the screen itself doesnt come with an HMDI port on the board.
Any help is appreciated
I get where you are coming from and been toying with the idea of putting a few kits together up on tindie and dfw2600.com. (see my post about CyberPDAs in 2022)
Just was want to make sure you and anyone else coming to this thread was aware that cyberDecks is a subset hobby of the maker/diy community and that the tools listed in my original post should get nearly *anyone*, while not *everyone*, started.
That said. We live in a day where parts are dead simple to order online and tools are not really needed.
For 3d printing, download an stl file for a cyberdeck case from thingaverse then order it from Shapeways. The will print it out and ship it back to you. Then get a RPi4 canakit from adafruit or amazon for the motherboard plus a bluetooth mobile keyboard and Rpi touchscreen (amazon.com/dp/B0153R2A9I). Most 3d cases are snap ins so no tools needed, and one just burns Debian to an sdcard for the os.
If one is looking for a pre built kit that you put together then again, that's not the hobby. Which given how popular DIY and this subreddit is; I doubt its going to "die out".
But in lue of no tools or hackerspace, then for the extra cash and about 20 minutes of effort one can have online services provide all the parts for you then snap them together when they arrive.
It's the 7 inch and it's been a great one for a couple years now. I got it on Amazon -
Sure, so it's a Raspberry Pi Official 7" Touchscreen it's in a bamboo "frame". I can't find the bamboo one right now, I bought it years ago and I'm in the UK. There are similar ones on thingiverse you can print or you can get various frame/mounts in plastic on Amazon.
On the back of the frame you mount the Raspberry Pi, then I printed some v-slot brackets off thingiverse to attach to the printer and routed the USB cable down the gantry and under the printer to the port at the front.
I removed the screen that came with the printer and disconnected the ribbon cable for tidyness.
The Pi is running OctoPi and that dashboard is called OctoDash. I do most of my control in the web UI but the touch UI is nice for the odd tweaks or starting prints already uploaded
It could possibly be the official Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen but maybe not because the bezel on that one is rather large.
Do you know if this one will work with windows?
This 7" Touchscreen Display claims to only need the display ribbon and a power source, which can be micro usb. I don't have personal experience with this screen though, so you should do more research on it.
I have this LCD, and when I plug the power supply into the adapter board the LCD kicks on so I suppose that's good. It also turns the green light on the pi on for a second but then everything goes off again. about to test it on another pi I have.
>Is it possible to have a power supply that is too strong for it?
It needs to be a 5V micro USB charger, which is the same standard as phone chargers. Anything with a higher voltage could cause damage. As far as current goes no, the advertised current will be the maximum that the charger can provide, but if the Pi uses less than that it won't be a problem, it'll just use less energy.
>What small screen would you recommend?
I've only ever used a PC monitor or TV screen, so if you're really keen on a small portable thing I'm afraid I can't really help. The Raspberry Pi foundation does produce an official screen though.
You can get them off Amazon or from sites like Adafruit or SparkFun.
it was actually really simple. i got the official raspberry pi 7 inch screen and this case.
I picked up a generic power supply from Walgreens and attatched it to the back with velcro. Just had to add "lcd_rotate=2" to the config txt to rotate the screen bc the picture is upside down after putting the screen in the case
>This sort of screen (https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Pi-7-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B0153R2A9I) doesn't need a separate controller and can be seen in these types of guides: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3eu6Yh6D4s as well as the Jayz2cents video linked below. The disadvantage is you're stuck with smaller panels that are 5" - 7".
>If you want to find a specific size LCD you can go to a myriad of sellers such as https://www.laptopscreen.com/ or https://www.screencountry.com/. However, you'll have to convert the HDMI signal from the graphics card to a 30 pin signal on the LCD panel. My LCD (model number N141I3-L01, stamped on the back of the panel) was very old, so I had to get this specific $30 controller card: (Reddit won't let me link to the ebay item!) and the seller had to "program" the card for my panel. I was thinking if I had to buy my own panel, one difficulty is that it is hard to find specific length and width dimensions for the panel, generally just the diagonal dimension is given. Another thing I don't like about my old panel is the viewing angle is pretty poor, but I guess they weren't that great 10+ years ago. My panel is 1280x800 and 14" diagonal. Also I lied, I didn't get it from amazon, I got it from ebay. It shipped from the US and was at my house in a matter of days.
Raspberry Pi Touchscreen
3D printed case
Here’s my setup
I applaud the initiative and reluctance to trash something but I can only assume the amount of work you'd need to do to get this to work with the pi would be enormous unless that ribbon cable is somehow standardized.
Example 7" touchscreen for like $65: https://smile.amazon.com/Raspberry-Pi-7-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B0153R2A9I?sa-no-redirect=1
As far as I can tell all these displays need an additional card to drive them.
Maybe you could ping the shop itself. Something like this looks similar to what you have but there is always a "hat" involved AFAICT.
I'm just some dumb guy on the internet so feel free to ignore me.
Its the raspberry pi 7"
In this case
Hello! I am using the 7inch LCD touch screen (https://www.canakit.com/raspberry-pi-lcd-display-touchscreen.html) so your milage may vary. I am also using raspberry pi 4 with Bullseye OS.
I setup two cron jobs to dim and wake the screen
ScreenDimCronJob.sh (Runs at 11PM)
DISPLAY=:0 xset s activate
DISPLAY=:0 xset s 60 60
ScreenWakeCronJob.sh (Runs at 7AM)
DISPLAY=:0 xset s reset
DISPLAY=:0 xset s 0 600
After a few iterations, this works for me for setting a "sleep schedule"
I also commented out dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d as it was inconsistently causing the screen to be complete white on boot.
Hope this helps!
I got this screen

And I used this case
NeeGo Raspberry Pi 4 Screen Case... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081VT2CPW?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I of course had to whittle a little on the case, but I like it a lot.
I used this for the power. Makes it easier to unplug.

I use this one.

This is the touchscreen I use without any issues. It’s gone up in price like $25 in the past year.

It's the Raspberry Pi original 7 inch touchscreen.
It's this one.
Here it is...
> ing collecting dust
I have the official Pi touchscreen in a SmartiPi Touch 2 case which I use for a Volumio streaming music player. Works great out of the box and the case is solid and easily assembled.
Yes, uses the official Raspberry Pi 7" Touch Screen Display: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0153R2A9I
Using the official RPi Touchscreen would seem to meet your requirements.
Here's the official touchscreen display on Amazon
I’m not entirely sold on DakBoard, some of their purchase options are pretty cheap so that it’s not terribly bad to pick one up.
I literally just purchased from amazon a Pi and a 7in touch screen . No specific goal in mind just yet but plan to buy a few more pi’s for around the house. I originally got into Pi to build a floor plan in LoveLace.
A month ago I wouldn’t have said this, but if you have the time I would recommend pi. (Biggest issue for noobs over at r/homeassistant is not programming knowledge, I think it’s free time.)
Data recording you could use Googles own Drive API:
this way, you can use google sheets, and when you want to tabulate data on your own, you can.
If you do use a screen, use something like this:https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Pi-7-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B0153R2A9I/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=raspberry+pi+screen&qid=1550009238&s=gateway&sr=8-3
What I would do, is to implement a stack to monitor the information, and write a simple pygame implementation to show the graph on screen. That would be cool.
If you’re looking for a small screen the touchscreen is supposed to be pretty good. I’ve not used it before tho.
I got this screen and this case for mine.
Using a $20 Anker power bank, I can get a few hours.
Once you get that data into google sheets, have a Raspberry Pi output the variable to something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Pi-7-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B0153R2A9I
If you have any other Q's, ask away. There's a ton of folks here that have tried all kinds of stuff with their systems.
On the idea of staying portable ... I've built something somewhat portable using the following supplies:
Here's what you need:
Again, this is hassle-free and the quickest route to go. What you'll still need:
I can go into more detail if you're interested in something like this.
It really depends on the level of complexity you want to get into.
Want something that will take you 4 minutes to put together? It's a bit more than your budget, but you'll get a much better gaming experience. Here's what you need:
This is the exact one that I bought! It worked right out of the box for me! https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Pi-7-Touchscreen-Display/dp/B0153R2A9I

The touch screen, from amazon
Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0153R2A9I/ref=cm_sw_r_apip_8HBumMmFq7swJ
Want something that will take you 4 minutes to put together? Here's what you need:
This is what I'm referring to :
To keep this project as easy as possible, your best bet for a screen is likely the official 7" raspberry pi touchscreen.
Using that screen and a pi 3, you can find cases that hold both, such as: (I don't know if this is the best case, do some research here)
After you have that all assembled, you can load up your software.

The screen draws its power from the Pi's 5v GPIO, so you should only have to plug the Pi into the battery. With this setup plus a USB/Bluetooth controller, you should have a fully-portable setup with no nasty wire mess!
Hope that helps!
I think the official Pi screen would be best
It's using the GPIO (I got this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0153R2A9I/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I'll try this out a bit later - thanks!
Fair enough- https://www.amazon.com/OFFICIAL-RASPBERRY-FOUNDATION-TOUCHSCREEN-DISPLAY/dp/B0153R2A9I does this look familiar?
It's this one:
Only Amazon.com offers prime shipping on this.
I would suggest a GPIO touch screen, that have full support for raspberry pi specially under raspbian.
