 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I recently bought this touchscreen for my Arduino Mega 2560
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12688460
i have tried the seeedstudio libraries:
https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/TFT_Touch_Shield_V1
all i get is a white screen
the examples all upload but i get no output whatsoever on the new touchscreen

i have sat in front of this stupid computer for too long to get only this in return smiley-sad

In the TFT.h library file at line 33, change from #define SEEEDUINO to #define MEGA.

Report back.

I don't think you can use the SD shield at the same time as the display because of data or address line conflicts.

This subject has come up before as I recall, so do a search.
