Installing a Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display on a Raspberry Pi 4
The recipe Pi original monitor comes like this, and it has a circuit to control it, so we need to place the Raspberry Pi on top of this, so first we need to remove these screws Music. Now the Raspberry Pi has these four holes here to place the screws that we are going to use to place it on top of it, but before I would prefer to connect the cables in the screen its going to be easier in this way. It comes with these four cables. The red one goes here, which is a 5 volts. The black one goes here, which is ground. The yellow goes here which is synchronization, and the green goes here is the a okay. This is the connection that you need on the circuits for the screen before we put the Raspberry Pi on top lets place the cable as well. So this cable, as you can see here it has this part which are the contacts, and this other part, is isolated and on the other side, is the other way around. This is isolated, and here you have the contacts. The way this works is that you have here these lock mechanism. So basically, if I push it down like this, it locks the cable in when, before you take the cable, you dont have to pull the cable dont. Do that you might damage it. What you have to do is first, move these lock mechanism up its very delicate, its very careful and then now you can take the cable or put the cable in the contents.
Here are on the upper part, so you have to make sure that this part of the cable that has the metal exposed is the one that goes up here like this once the cable is in gently, push the lock and now its in now its easier. We just put the Raspberry Pi on top and screw the back. Usually the first screw dont go all the way down, so you can keep it alive, but without lock it so you can actually put the second screw in place on this side. Now I can lock and secure the screw and everything is in place, and now I can finish this one. Okay, now that we are done with it here we have exactly the same mechanism. We have this lock in this area here that goes up and down to lock the cable and again, in this case the contacts are in this side of it, so you have to put it in this way, whats in we just press and lock it down. Now we have to connect these cables to the gpio of the Raspberry Pi, so the red goes here next to its ground, the green one and the yellow one. At this point we are ready to go. We can just turn on our Raspberry Pi plug in here. The power supply and we should be able to start using our monitor, okay, its a bit difficult to show here on the camera. The screen actually looks pretty nice, so here you can see that from Attack type.
The response is very good and fast. Now the problem is, if you open something that you need to actually type. Of course, this is not a tactile like a interface, so you will need a keyboard and a mouse. I just happen to have here a Raspberry Pi Mouse which actually you dont need. You need you can use any Mouse, but Im a fan and a Raspberry Pi keyboard. You also can use here mouse and keyboard and its still attached screen and you have a normal screen that you can use. One thing to notice: is these monitor camps just in this way you can screw it here on a frame. You can do basically anything you want. There is a case on Amazon that there is a link below you can check, which actually comes and encloses the Monitor and also gives you the space to place the Raspberry Pi, 4 or other Raspberry Pi models. Well, it wasnt that difficult after all – and there are other touch displays – you can connect to a space by not just this one, but some of them require some special drivers on some special configuration may offer also a better resolution, but with this one youre sure it Will always work its very responsive and its very good for most projects, as always, thanks for watching and see you in the next video.
