2.4 TFT - White Screen (Weather Display)

by astrotim on Tue Nov 14, 2017 4:37 pm

Hello,

I recently purchased an assembled/soldered Adafruit Feather HUZZAH with ESP8266 & Adafruit 2.4" TFT Feather Wing with hopes of completing the ESP8266 WiFi Weather Station with Color TFT Display project, https://learn.adafruit.com/wifi-weather-station-with-tft-display/overview.

Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the 2.4 TFT Display. When powered, by either a 3.7V LiPo or micro USB, the 2.4 TFT screen displays a bright white light, but nothing else. I've successfully ran a "blink" test on the HUZZAH ESP8266, but receive an error message when running the "graphictest_featherwing" example.

I've provided the error message below:
Error compiling for board Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
 Arduino: 1.8.5 (Windows 10), Board: "Adafruit HUZZAH ESP8266, 80 MHz, 115200, 4M (3M SPIFFS)"

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

Here's a few photos showing the soldered connections and white screen:
