Repositioning the screen on Clue

by Brewingeo on Wed Mar 17, 2021 12:20 pm

Hi, I would like to remove the Clue Screen so I can position the board horizontally but have the screen vertical. I see the screen adheres to the board by double stick tape but I can't figure out how to detach the cable at the connector. Ideas? Thanks!

The ribbon cable attaches to an FPC connector on the back of the CLUE. There are two locking tabs on either end of the connector.

Would it work to just rotate the display output in software?

Thanks, and now that's a thought, rotating the display by software. I'm experimenting with the accelerometer starting with methods in the "CLUE Spirit Level Demo" in the library. I spent some time adjusting shape coordinates but unless the board was perfectly horizontal, that didn't work. So if I could adjust the display (calibrate) and define a centered bubble at any board angle, then I could get on with my own application.

If you have any suggestions or examples I'd love to read up and learn more.

Cheers!
