Fixings Kit For PiggiPi Stand

2.) Attach the stem to the frame

Using the hex key attach the frame to the stem using the 4mm button head screw.

It is a good idea to place the frame on a covered flat surface such as a towel on a table. This will protect your frame and table from scratches.

Make use of the access slot on the rear of the stem to align the screw, stem and frame. See illustration opposite.

Note that the frame is orientated so that the cable slot points to the bottom.

Very lightly tighten the screw, so that the frame can be adjusted.

3.) Align the stem with the frame

Turn the assembly around so that you can see the front of the frame.

Adjust the stem so that the frame sits nicely on the step of the stem, as shown in the picture opposite.

Tighten the screw at the back with the hex key to lock the frame into position.

Be careful not to over tighten the screw as this could damage the frame.

4.) Thread your cables through the stem

Thread your power cable, and other cables, like the keyboard cable through the bottom of the stem, one at a time.

5.) Carefully mount the raspberry Pi to the screen

Lie the screen face down on a towel.

Take the small ribbon cable that was supplied with your screen, and clip it into the port on the screens control board (shiny connections to the top).

Attach your Raspberry Pi to the back of the screen using the screws supplied with the Raspberry Pi Screen. (Not the screws supplied with your PiggiPi stand)

Lie the screen assembly on a soft surface

6.) Offer up the stand assembly to the screen

Carefully offer the frame of the stand assembly to the screen assembly, threading it over the Raspberry Pi.

Note: because of space restrictions not all 3.5 plugs will easily plug into the 3.5 video/audio socket. We recommend using one with a 90 degree bend or a 90 adaptor like the one in the picture opposite. If you wish to do this then this is the time to plug it in.

Plug in 90 degree jack socket adaptor

7.) Align the screen

Adjust the frame so that the threaded holes on the back of the Raspberry Pi Screen are aligned with the slots on the back of the frame.

Align the screen

8.) Screw screen to stand assembly

Attach the screen to the stand assembly using the the 3mm cap head screws and washers.

NOTE: ONLY LIGHTLY FASTEN THE SCREWS. OVER TIGHTENING CAN DAMAGE THE SCREEN

Whilst viewing the assembly from the front make fine adjustments to the screen position by slackening the screws slightly and sliding the screen so that there is an even gap around the screen and frame.

9a.) Plug in cables

Plug the power into the Micro USB socket on the bottom board (the screen controller board).

Plug the ribbon cable into the Raspberry Pi’s display port (see photo opposite). Ensure that the ribbon cable is clipped into place.

We recommend using a USB to Micro USB cable to bring the power from the screen’s controller board to your Raspberry Pi. Best results are obtained by using a short angled USB plug design like the one in the picture opposite.

Alternatively you may want to use the jumper wires that come supplied with your screen. See next step 9b (alternative).

Finally plug in any other cables that you may have, such as the keyboard USB.

The assembly is now complete. You are ready to ROCK!

Attach Cables

9b.) Plug in cables Alternative

 

 

If you do not have a short angled USB to Micro USB cable for providing power from the screen to your Raspberry Pi there is an alternative method. Power can be supplied to the Raspberry Pi from the screen board using the jumper leads that come in the pack with your screen.

For all models from B+ onward, only 2 wires are required.

See adjacent picture for illustration of correct wiring.
