The LCD does not work when I connect it to my Raspberry Pi / Rasbian Distro
To use the LCD with the Raspberry Pi official image, the driver must be installed first. Please refer to the user manual.
Alternatively use the provided image directly to flash your SD card. 
Also ensure that your Raspberry Pi power supply can provide enough current for the Pi and LCD
LCD does not work even when using the provided stock images. 
Check the hardware connection and cables etc. 
Ensure the SD card has flashed correctly, perhaps try a different .
The PWR will keep on and the ACT will keep blinking when the Raspberry Pi starts up successfully, in case both of the two LEDs keep on, it is possible that the image was burnt incorrectly OR the TF card was in bad contact.
Which power supply should I use?
It is strongly recommended to use a stand-alone 5V/2A power adapter, because the PC's USB port might have not enough power to support the Pi and LCD.

Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
