PCD7.D763 displays a black screen or is frozen, it has lost the calibration: use VTWIN 5.22 (link included)

FAQ #101196

The display has a frozen screen (can be black if in standby mode) and can't be operated.

After a powerup the project's start page is displayed but it might be that the touch screen doesn't respond, because the calibration has been lost.



The booter and the firmware need to be updated.
If it isn't possible to force the display in transfer mode (download mode) it is necessary first to recalibrate the screen following the description. See FAQ 100868 (see link below).
All displays produced since 16/07/2010 have the new booter.
