I would like display standard demo on display FRD55 using standard code form emcraft repository (

After the system boots up display is dark, nothing show (backlight work). I check hardware and every power supply is fine. In logs I have the same information like in tutorial (see in attachment).


I checked frame buffer set and timings have only 0 value. Is it correct ? Below is data from terminal:

root@imx8m-som:~# fbset

mode "1920x1080"

    geometry 1920 1080 1920 1080 32

    timings 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

    accel true

    rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,0/0



I tried run lcdtest but effect is the same: display is dark. Below is data from terminal:

root@imx8m-som:~# lcdtest

1920x1080, 32bpp

The framebuffer can be accessed at the address 0xffffa3851000


I tried upload frame buffer random data but I got receive, that buffor didn’t left space:

root@imx8m-som:~# > sudo cat /dev/urandom > /dev/fb0

cat: write error: No space left on device


Please give me some advice what is wrong,
