i just joined the forum. looking forward to the day when i can contribute. but, today's not that day. today i have questions. i bought the subject display from buydisplays.com. came with the 8876 shield. chip on the display itself is labeled ra8876l4n. i attached an uno. here's a link to the product: http://www.buydisplay.com/default/serial-spi-arduino-10-1-tft-lcd-touch-shield-ra8876-for-mega-due-uno can't get anything but a black/white/black screen at startup. i'm hoping that all i need is the 8876 library, but i can't find one. tried installing the 8875. it didn't help. i realize that the vendor supplies a library. tried to install the zip to no avail. ide wouldn't cooperate (probably my fault). to be honest, i wasn't comfortable doing this in the first place for 2 reasons. i'd rather not pollute the arduino libs, and i wasn't impressed with the vendor api. would much rather use the arduino tft api.
anybody out there have any luck with this/these larger displays? what do i need to do?
thank you, lee btw, at the moment, i'm not interested in the touch capability. just need to display graphics and stuff.
