VU7 Screen on C2

Post by morriswu06 »


I just bought a VU7 screen and would like to use it with C2. I use HDMI cable for video signal and Micro-USB cable for power(C2-VU7). However, when I turned the power on, the screen just all white.

From the VU7 Wiki it says "in case of ODROID-C2, display auto detection mode can adjust hdmi resolution and dvi option by default.So you don't need to edit boot.ini." I've also checked the boot.ini file and the line setenv display_autodetect "true" is the same as Wiki. Is there any other thing I need to set to let VU7 screen work with C2?

As odroid mentioned, please check the version of OS image first.

And if you have no luck after using the latest OS image, please check the followings.

[ 1 ] Debug files
And could you share the following files in /media/boot/ ?
( /media/boot/ : vfat file system of your card )
- edid.bib
- display.bin

You can find those files if auto detection scheme works normally
and they contain normal EDID information if hdmi connection is OK.

Please share the files here as attachment.

[ 2 ] VU7 version
Can you specify the revision of VU7 display?
You can check it using the text of back-side of your VU7 display like this.
- VU7
- VU7 Plus (VU7+)
- VU7A Plus (VU7A+)
