I ordered a cheap 2.8 inch ILI9341 screen from Amazon (https://www.amazon.co.uk/240×320-Screen-Serial-Module-ILI9341/dp/B07MXH92RL/ref=sr_1_12?dchild=1&keywords=spi+screen&qid=1589230039&sr=8-12) in the hopes of using it in a custom handheld Retropie console. However, I have attempted many different methods, none of which seem to work. I have reason to believe that the screen is not faulty as, when I give power to the backlight, it lights up, so I think that this is a software issue. Does anybody know how I can configure it to work? Many thanks, Dominic.

I read the product datasheet and found that it has no touch screen option. So it should be easier to use: Ref (1) “Amazon Ftvogue ILI9341 2.8″ 240×320 SPI TFT LCD Screen (5110 interface, with SD Card socket, no touch screen)”: amazon.co.uk/240×320-Screen-Serial-Module-ILI9341/dp/B07MXH92RL/…. Good Luck. Cheers. – tlfong01 22 mins ago
Your screen is [Nokia 5110] compatible TFT LCD screen. So you might find the following driver worth a try: (1) “5110 and TFT LCD video tutorial – ElecFreaks”: elecfreaks.com/store/blog/post/…, (2) “YouTube 5110 LCD and TFT LCD (TFT01-1.8SP and 2.2SP)”: youtube.com/watch?v=N7HGZuwRrp4&feature=youtu.be. Good Luck. Cheers. – tlfong01 1 min ago Edit
