1667 - 7" Monitor 1280x800 IPS w/Speakers

This monitor is nice when you just want a plug & play stand-alone solution. It's basically the same electronics as #1726 but in a case with built in speakers!

It's got excellent resolution (1280x800!) and IPS display so it is bright, crisp and looks good from any angle

This display is the same 7" display as in PID 1033, but with a different driver board.

There's a 3.5mm audio jack input on the side, this is for VGA-usage only, so you can have video and audio. It doesn't work with NTSC!

Note: occassionally, these screens come to us with Mandarin as their default language.  To set the language settings to English, power the screen, turn it on, and press the following sequence of buttons:

You must hit Power before unplugging or the changes will not save.

We're not sure what the driver board on this one is. But it works great just the same!
To get your display working with a Pi, here is our suggested config.txt:
Download: file
# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode
#hdmi_safe=1

# uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan
disable_overscan=1

#overscan_left=-40
#overscan_right=-40
#overscan_top=-40
#overscan_bottom=-40

hdmi_drive=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=28

# uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus
# overscan.
#framebuffer_width=1280
#framebuffer_height=720

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)
#hdmi_group=1
#hdmi_mode=1

# uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
# DMT (computer monitor) modes
#hdmi_drive=2

# uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
# no display
#config_hdmi_boost=4

# uncomment for composite PAL
#sdtv_mode=2

#uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.
#arm_freq=800
