Adafruit 1.69" 280x240 Round Rectangle Color IPS TFT Display

by bonemender on Fri Jan 21, 2022 1:45 am

I have reset the Adafruit ESP32-S2 Feather - 2 MB PSRAM and STEMMA QT / Qwiic, have reloaded both the example code and my own code and, while the display light turns on, the display remains dark. The code runs to the end without throwing an error. I have also checked all the connections and soldered joints, and they are all good.

Is the display bricked?

Is the backlight on? Can you post a photo of the soldering and wiring, and link to the code example? There should be a
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
while True:
loop at the end of the code so the display stays on.

The display was working until I added a battery to the RTC. Now the backlight comes on, but the display remains black. The example code is attached. The "We are here!" message is printed in the serial monitor in Mu, indicating the code runs without an error.

Thanks.
