1.8 " TFT Joystick shield DOA

by daniellerose on Sun Jan 10, 2021 11:34 am

The joystick I2C worked fine. The problem is the poor workmanship of the TFT header. The display did not work out of the box. The reason? rework had been done to solder the small flex PC to the shield. Besides the display being mounted crooked and just taped to the board the flex cable connecting the shield to the display was cracked not connecting the back light power. Under a microscope the crack could be seen and the display would flash when moved around. I don't recommend this shield to anyone.
