Mini PiTFT display is not functional: nothing displays

by k_pi on Sun Dec 20, 2020 3:19 pm

Looks to be the same issue identified by octopi2 on their thread: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=172823&p=844364&hilit=Mini+PiTFT#p844364 but was told I should create a new post.

PiTFT has power (backlight turns on while the pi is powered) but nothing I do does anything. Code runs but screen remains blank. I've tried several tests and started from scratch by re-flashing the sd card and going through each step again numerous times but nothing resolves the issue. Am I missing something or is this just like previous users who got a defective PiTFT display and just needed a replacement?

For reference I'm using it with a pi zero WH using the latest build of raspi OS lite Code is verified to work as I got it directly from adafruits own guide here: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-min ... thon-setup

I appreciate any help that can be offered as I'm just stuck.
