Wow! After so long time I don't remember all details, sorry.

As I remember, the first step is to understand if your TFT mounts the ILI9163 chip or the traditional ST7735.
Look at the posts from David Prentice above. He posted some code that you should run to detect the chip type.

After that you have three choices (for your version 1.1):

1. include Sumotoy libraries (if you detected the chip ILI9163)
2. include standard Adafruit libraries (if you detected the chip  ST7735)
3. include my class (if you detected the chip ST7735 but only if you notice that the screen is wrongly translated of 32 pixel down and/or rotated by 90°)

As I repeat, honestly I don't remember all details in this moment.
I strongly suggest you to invest an hour of time and read the thread from the beginning.
Arduino, what else?


thank you very much
mt tft chip is ILI9163
and i use from this library:
my connections:
and i use from arduino 3.3v and a 3.7 v battry
but its not work
please help me thank you



What doesen't work exactly?
Screen stay completely black?
Screen stay completely white?
Screen is black but nothing is printed?

If you powered the TFT with +5V before there is an high risk that you burned it. Do you have a second one to make a test?
Arduino, what else?
