TouchUI-Wave Share 3.5" LCD A Black screen after boot


I'm using " OctoPrint 1.3.12 running on OctoPi 0.17.0" on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Plus Rev 1.3 for a month without any problem, decided to install and use TouchUI and bought waveshare 3.5" LCD(A) model, it's connecting to pi through gpio pins, connected the screen and followed this instructions, screen started to work after run commands on instruction, after that installed TouchUI through octo print's web interface and followed this tutorial to start on boot

When restarted the pi, screen turns on, start up lines showing up, TouchUI (blue colored touchui screen) blinking couple of times (it's fading out and fading in), after that sceen goes black and it doesn't do anything if even i touch the screen.

I've installed raspberry's official operating system to find out if this screen works, after run the waveshare's commands screen & touch worked without any problem. But when i flash octoprint, couldn't be able to run touchui.

I'm quiet rookie about raspberry pi and unix based systems,so i don't know why it's not working, any help will be appreciated.

anyone has any thougts?

OctoPi is Raspberry Pi's official operating system (Lite) so it is without the GUI parts (which can be added) and with OctoPrint and a few other goodies preinstalled.

To use TouchUI, you need the GUI parts (which includes a browser) so you will have to add those to OctoPi before it can work. I trust you followed the instructions and tutorial you posted correctly but without some logs (from the operating system), we probably can't help you debug.

Alternatively, you can take your installation of Raspberry Pi's official operating system on which the screen works, and manually install OctoPrint using the fine installation document which I leave as an exercise for the reader to find :smile:.
