Hello Murray,


I also have the 5”Nextion enhanced and use a step down convertor for  13V-5V /1.5A ( 22 x 18 mm ) here about1.5 $.

No problems at all. The 5 V stabiliser on the Arduino has to low capacity to feed de big Arduino!

Ah ok. I am powering the uBITx off a 40amp PSU at 13.8 v. As I am writing that I think you are saying that I should power just the screen off a separate 5v power supply?


Cheers Mike

The screen flashing on and off is a pretty good sign of your power supply being overloaded.  That 5" screen draws quite a bit of current and if you are powering off the Raduino it will not supply sufficient current to the Raduino and the 5" Nextion.

go to files on the left column of this site. Search 5" Nextion. You'll see a selection for your enhanced screen. Joe and another (sorry...forgot his name) built a beautiful tft.
