OK i cleaned up everything, now it looks like this without the display:



Running the ST7735 Display on the ST7735 Options gets me just a blank white screen.
However changing to ST7789 and setting up to 128*128 gets me this:







The original code i am running on the Adafruot library is here:


Code: [Select]


#include <Adafruit_GFX.h>    // Core graphics library
#include <Adafruit_ST7735.h> // Hardware-specific library for ST7735
#include <Adafruit_ST7789.h> // Hardware-specific library for ST7789
#include <SPI.h>

  // For the breakout board, you can use any 2 or 3 pins.
  // These pins will also work for the 1.8" TFT shield.
  #define TFT_CS        10
  #define TFT_RST        9 // Or set to -1 and connect to Arduino RESET pin
  #define TFT_DC         8
#endif

// OPTION 1 (recommended) is to use the HARDWARE SPI pins, which are unique
// to each board and not reassignable. For Arduino Uno: MOSI = pin 11 and
// SCLK = pin 13. This is the fastest mode of operation and is required if
// using the breakout board's microSD card.

// For 1.44" and 1.8" TFT with ST7735 use:
//Adafruit_ST7735 tft = Adafruit_ST7735(TFT_CS, TFT_DC, TFT_RST);

// For 1.14", 1.3", 1.54", and 2.0" TFT with ST7789:
Adafruit_ST7789 tft = Adafruit_ST7789(TFT_CS, TFT_DC, TFT_RST);


float p = 3.1415926;

void setup(void) {
  Serial.begin(115200);

  // OR use this initializer (uncomment) if using a 1.3" or 1.54" 240x240 TFT:
  tft.init(128, 128);           // Init ST7789 240x240

We have no idea what display is used in your photos.

I strongly recommend that you connect the black wires properly.
And post a photo of the display pcb (or a link to the Ebay sale)

All info you are asking for i have posted in post #3 of this thread.

There are 2 black wires. The left one is connecting the display GND to the GND bar. (The arduino GND is connected to the GND bar with the silver bridge). The right wire connects the upper GND bar to the lower GND bar.
I'm afraid theres no more proper way to wire it than over a common bus.....

david_prentice

Your wiring is probably ok.   Have you tested each Chinese jumper wire?   They often break.

Neat wiring makes it possible for readers to check your photos.

Have you measured the 3.3V pin on the Arduino?

I can assure you that 128x128 ST7735 displays work fine (with 3.3V GPIO) but I only have red pcb displays (which have an AMS1117-3.3 on their VCC pin).

I do have the same ST7789 display as you.   But only used it with 3.3V VCC and logic.

I have never seen or used a SSD1329 display.   It is OLED.   You must use the correct library to "initialise the display".

All wires have been checked and are ok

Voltages:

Arduino 5V: 4,66V
Arduino 3.3V: 3,26V

5V logic signal taken after the first Resistor: 2,82V

The ST7789 i took to the other thread....

I just dont understand why the ST7735 display works partially with the ST7789 drivers activated, and not at  all with the 7735?

What library do you use on the 7735? What color tabs are they?

What about the 7789 library?

If i load the codes via usb, unplug them, and then power the nano with external 3.3V then my logic will also be 3.3V, correct? That way i could eliminate the resistor stuff....?
