I like many many MANY other people seem to be having problems with this screen.
I have tried pretty much every resource available and I cannot get the thing to display anything other than the LED backlight..
I am positive that it is simply me being a complete n00b but I could really use some help with this screen.
My specific situation -
Arduino being used: Genuine Arduino Mega2560
I do NOT have the shield for this screen I am simply trying to connect it up using the pins.
Every place I look seems to have different pinouts for the libraries and quite frankly I am confused as anything right now.
the ebay link I bought the screen from is as follows:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280920642812?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
From this listing I have the following information:
Wide viewing angle
SSD1289:240 RGB x 320 TFT Driver
Integrated Power, Gate and Source Driver With RAM
ADS7843:4-WIRE TOUCH, UP TO 125kHz CONVERSION RATE, SERIAL INTERFACE
Though I am not sure how much of that will be of use.
I really hope someone can help me getting this to work.
For now I would be happy if I can get get the screen to output information and print out text. I am not overly bothered about the Touch capability or the SD card reader right now.
