TS050 screen flickering

Which system do you use? Android, Ubuntu, OOWOW or others?


Which version of system do you use? Khadas official images, self built images, or others?

Official Android image

Please describe your issue below:

Hello, i have a big problem with the TS050 touchscreen.
When i put the device in standby with the screen connected and then resume after a while, the screen starts heavy white flickering. The longer it is in standby the stronger is the flickering.

I hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance

Hi @Shizet ,

Could you state your installed Android version ?

Is this only with a particular firmware or is the issue there in other firmware you have tested ?


Hi thank for the reply.

The problem occured on these firmwares.


Currently iam on the latest v230625

Have you tried other firmware like Ubuntu ?

What power supply are you using ?

No i haven’t tried Ubuntu or any other os because Android was my preffered way for emulation, but i will give it a go and then report back.

My Edge is powered by 2 Lipo batteries @7.4V and then boosted to 12V. Yesterday i tried 20V but nothing changed.

I would suspect that is your problem. Noise from the boost regulator will interfere with stuff. At minimum do some testing using a good solid power supply. If the problem goes away you just found the problem.

Oh that is very good suggestion, i never thought about that and will try that.

Edit: ok i checked it with a reliable power supply and the problem persists.

@Shizet I have reproduced the problem you mentioned, and I will work hard to solve it.

Thank you very much, so is that a software problem?

@Shizet Yes. This issue has been corrected. But releasing a version requires a process. It may take a long time. Have you downloaded the code to compile firmware? If possible, I can release the modified code to you.

@goenjoy yes that would be great if you can release the code.

Thank you very much for the help
