I am just feeling around to see if I am having a known issue or if I have a bad screen. I have worked with several TFTs and the arduino. Typically you have your few min. of fun trying to connect but all is well afterwards. I recently purchased the Emartee 5" http://www.emartee.com/product/42176/TFT%205%22%20800*480%20With%20SD%20Touch%20Module
similar to http://www.elecfreaks.com/store/50-tft-lcd-screen-module-tft0150-p-420.html
. I use the SainSmart Mega-shield for a TFT, http://www.amazon.com/SainSmart-Adjustable-Shield-Arduino-Mega/dp/B008FWSGGK
and of course the Mega.
My life became much easier when the UTFT library was released http://www.henningkarlsen.com/electronics/library.php?id=51
. Working with the new Emartee 5" I am at a loss, only thing I am getting is a blank white screen, or backlight. I checked all connections and code trying,
UTFT myGLCD(SSD1963_800,38,39,40,41); (rest of code is just the examples given with UTFT)
and the code released with the hardware... not pretty.
I have a sainsmart 3.2 TFT running off the same hardware just fine.
Any ideas or do I have a bad screen?
As a FYI I am capable of reading information from the serial monitor of x and y recieved from the touchscreen, just can not see anything.
