I know that this is a little vague, but I have a no-brand 9" display and a no-brand control board that I got from AliExpress. They didn’t come with any instructions.
I’m attempting to use them to create a case-mod that will display a cycling wallpaper using DMT as the software on Windows 10. It’s display 3 of 3. Display 1 is DP, display 2 is HDMI
The display is connected to a 3amp used power supply and an HDMI cable.
Sometime when I turn my PC the display comes on as expected, other times the back light flashes on every few seconds but nothing else. I need to pull the power and the HDMI out of the board to get it to run. If I pull the power or the HDMI at source, then it still just flashes.
Sometimes when I turn one of the other monitors off, the same happens. The screen goes black and the back light flashes every few seconds.
I wonder if my PC might be trying to send it too high a refresh rate, but I don’t know the native rate.
I wonder if it’s not getting enough power, as if I try to use a longer lead on the power it also flashes like this (It won’t turn on at all if I use a USB extension cable, or a longer 5.5mm cable).
How should I start fault finding?
I’ve already confirmed that Windows can see the display.
