Pygamer GFX not working

by reefhermit on Fri May 22, 2020 7:37 pm

I have no problem uploading the simple blink sketch to the Pygamer and it works. No luck with the graphicsTest sketch from the GFX library. Compiles and uploads but does not display on the screen.

Thanks,

Ken

Can you get screen activity with anything else? CuircitPython displayio demos, Makecode games, etc?

Thanks for the prompt response Dave . . . the splash screen for Pygamer is active on boot. The game Blinka loads and works fine.

OK, so your screen is fine.

What graphicsTest are you using? CircuitPython, C++...?

#include "SPI.h"
#include "Adafruit_GFX.h"
#include "Adafruit_ILI9341.h"

From the Arduino library

Do you have the serial monitor open?

Yes, and I see the time for each screen graphics routine!

Hmmm... so it's working but you don't see it on the screen.

I'll check if anyone's seen this before.

Can you isolate more examples that don't show and some that do?

Yes, the Arduino sketch is running on the pygamer. I have tried other Adafruit example graphics sketches, there are a couple of others, but no luck.

The Arduino test from Adafruit Arcada lib works fine on the Pygamer, however, the serial print from that sketch does not display. No worries though . . . just a heads up!

Thanks,

Ken

ok and the display is showing colorful stuff? :) if so, your hardware is good, something is amiss maybe you have the wrong board selected, need to update libraries...
