Get prepared

This section focuses on debug display driver issue on rel-28.x release.
Drivers of tegra display controller are under kernel source:
For T210(TX1)
For T186(TX2). Note that TX2 still uses driver code of T210.


  • Print current mode in dc
sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tegradc.X/mode  #X=0,1,2.
  • Print current mode in fbcon
sudo cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/mode  #if more than one fb, just change the fbX to whatever you want.
  • Capture edid
sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tegradc.X/edid  #X=0,1,2.
  • Forcing edid
1. Prepare a known 256byte EDID.
2. set use_fallback = true; in tegra_edid_get_monspecs() under edid.c.
3. fill in the known EDID to default_720p_edid[256].
  • If I hit underflow? (red screen or blank line flicker)
sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tegradc.0/stats
underflows: 35
underflows_a: 143
underflows_b: 0
underflows_c: 0
  • Blank/Unblank window/display
sudo  echo 4 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank  #blank display and power down
sudo  echo 1 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank  #blank display and show the background color
sudo  echo 0 > /sys/class/graphics/fb0/blank
