Do I need to remove R20 to R21 and R18 to R19?
@TheCoolestIn the initial thread it was written that the display is from aliexpress, but the datasheed given is from dfrobot. So i do not think that the datasheet is helpfull in this case.@limingQuoteDo I need to remove R20 to R21 and R18 to R19?Exactly. Setting BS1 and BS2 to zero (that means resoldering both resistors to the 0 position) will put the display into SPI mode. The datasheet of the controller and also the datasheet from dfrobot will tell you where to find the SPI pins.D0 = CLKD1 = Data InD/C = A0 Oliver
OLEDs do not have a backlight.Oliver
HiOLEDs require some power. OLEDs of that size can easily draw 100mA and more (up to 400mA). The question is, how do you power your OLED. If the OLED is powered by the 3.3V output of the Arduino, then the power could break down after some (short) time. As far as i remember, the Arduino 3.3V can only provide 50mA. Maybe enough as long as the OLED is black, but insufficient as soon as something is displayed. I suggest to power the OLED by some external source (I often use 2x AA in my projects).Another option might be, that the init sequence for the OLED is incorrect. The init sequence in u8glib has been written for the NHD OLED, so it might be different for your OLED. But from your description, i assume, that your power source can not provide enough current.Oliver
You could connect the reset input of the OLED with a digital pin of the Arduino. Add the pin number of that pin to the u8glib constructor. This will allow u8glib to control the reset of the OLED.Oliver
