OLED display 1.3

by olivier1870 on Thu Nov 19, 2020 9:13 am

Hi,

I just bought a bunch of new version of the Monochrome 1.3" 128x64 OLED graphic displays. With the old version I could easily turn the display ON/OFF using a button (by controlling the Vin and reset Pin). Now this does not work anymore !!! Very useful for stand alone devices, where power consumption is an issue!

Any suggestions? still possible to by old version?

Many thanks

oliver

I would say if you don't have any lit pixels, it consumes close to no power. The displays are really dumb, no buffer or controller that does much. I would say connect VCC and GND to 2 GPIO pins, and switch them to OUTPUT when an image is needed and INPUT when you want to go low power.
