Modifying a Raspberry Pi dislay



  • Hi All,
    I got this 5" raspberry pi display, XPT2046 Touch Controller. Currently it has a hardware backlight on/off switch and i'm looking to change that to be able to turn on and off the backlight using a script from raspberry pi.
    I am looking for an always on gate that i can control through a pin. My initial thought was to place a tranzistor, but not sure if that will work. Any other ideas ? how can i achieve this really simple and easy ?
