Was able to correct the issue.

In the Expert MMDVMHost section, in the OLED section, set the type to "6".

Glad you figured it out. For anyone else who comes across this post: there are some fundamental and optional OLED settings available via the Expert Editor on the MMDVMHost page in the OLED section:
  • Set OLED Type: 3 = 0.96″ or 6 = 1.3″. After applying changes, reboot Pi-Star.
  • Change rotation: Rotate = 0 or 1. Thanks to work done by mreckhof, K5MRE△, merged into MMDVMHost by Jonathan, G4KLX, and implemented into Pi-Star by Andy Taylor.
  • Invert background: 0 = white text on black background or 1 = black text on white background.
  • Change brightness: 10 = bright or 0 = less bright (effect varies by modem board).
  • Thanks to Scott, VK7HSE, for this one: If your OLED display has garbled text, check your Display Level in the Expert Editor > MMDVMHost > Log section. It must be set to 0.
