white screen (of death)

Post by LB6WG » Tue Mar 26, 2019 7:16 pm

I got a 3,2 screen from ebay, when plugged into the pi or USB power I only get a white screen, nothing else.

It doesnt flash the tft file either.

Is it a DOA ?

Cheers
Glen

HI Glen,

Sounds like you might find the NEXTION_How-to-build_v2.03.pdf by Rob, PD0DIB, helpful:

Since you said Ebay. Are you certain it is a Nextion display or a knock off. If so the Nextion development tool will not work.

Thanks for the link, but there wasnt anything new in that then what I have found other places / done.

I think I return the screen as its U/S.

No I think its a knock off / genuine copy.
