Hello,

I have Orange Pi Lite and it was working excellent with monitor on HDMI output. I didn't read much about the pin compatibility with Raspberry Pi and it seems to be a mistake. I bought a touch screen for Raspberry Pi from:
here

When I attached it to my Orange Pi it died. I'm not sure about the display itself.
Now I intend to buy another Orange Pi, however would like an advice about the touch screen. Is it possible to attach this one (by re-wiring or something like that) or which one would you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

If this TFT is the clone of WaveShare 3.5inch RPi LCD (A) , it will work as framebuffer console.
But no one knows whether it's the clone really.

Thanks for the answer. I have tried to get more info from the seller. They have a link: here
It is a link for raspberry pi image with installed driver. It causes Orange Pi to stop working: LCD screen is OFF and all LEDs are OFF.
Same thing if I try with Orange Pi Android OS (I was hopping it will recognize hardware).
Are there any pre-built images for Orange Pi which work with this display here?
If not which display is known to work with Orange Pi Lite, preferable with Linux and Android too?

Thanks in advance.

Armbian is supporting Framebuffer with default.
You don't need special Image.
But, you have to understand about a FrameBuffer device.
Perhaps, The input from a touch panel isn't easy.

Check this topic.

You will also need to make sure that you are giving the pi enough power.  I have the same screen on my raspberry pi and it works best if you supply it its own power.  Have not tried on my zero because of the gpio difference

Thanks, yes I suspected that power could be the problem, so instead of USB I take 5V directly from my PC's power supply. The problem is really the GPIO compatibility. I decided to order another touch screen with HDMI and USB inputs. Hope that will work.
