Sitronix ST7796s LCD-panel driver probe fails with error "st7796: probe of 32e10000.mipi_dsi.0 fail"

Contributor I


I am using a VART-DART-MX8M MINI to interface a LCD panel ( using MIPI_DSI )  which is of make:- YOURI and model no:- ET020HV03-OT, it used driver IC:- SITRONIX ST7796s. I took reference from driver code of st7701:-

and dts entry :-

to write my driver code and to make changes in the dts of my board. I am using yocto ZEUS ( kernel 5.4.3) to build image for my board. When I am running the built image on board I am getting these prints in kernel logs :-

I added printk in my driver's probe function to as to verify whether my driver is getting called or not. It is getting called but the probe is failing with error -22. I would like to add that by default the board's dts has entry for LVDS bridge SN65DSI84 which I have commented out as we have bypassed it on board.

Also there is an error related to unsupported dsi mode but when I checked out every panel driver which were present already in the kernel source has same dsi modes which is:-


I am attaching the kernel logs, my dts file with changes and my driver. It would be great help if someone can point out what mistake I am doing or missing something.

Thanks in advance.

Hi purendra_singh


for sitronix panel usage with i.MX8MMini one can look at below link:
