So you bought the Lite screen and you want to use it on the v3? well then you need to install the LCD driver but since you are a noob with all of this just use the mintyPi lite image to get it to show.

But then there are other issues you will have like the device not turning on for more than a few seconds. The screens are not interchangeable without adding the LCD driver and this requires you to know how to log into the system using SSH.

Do you know how to log into the Pi using SSH? If not then I can't help you as that requires alot of back and forth and there are tutorials for this online. Try hoping on the Discord server where I or someone can walk you through some things.
