I have been working with a 2.8" TFT display recently for a project of mine, and with whatever I load / install / check / double check, nothing seems to work. Let me go into more detail:
I have been working on trying to create a device for a school project that displays time and date, allows the user to input an alarm at any time they want that can repeat every 1 or 2 or 3 etc hours and once the time has been reached, I want it to display a message informing the user. I have not progressed in any way, shape or form because with each code I try to upload to my Arduino Mega, I will either always end up with a white screen on my display or an uploading error or if I am lucky (Which has only ever happened once) The code will successfully be uploaded and display want I wanted it to, problem with this situation is that my display did not register the correct input. It was a calculator program I was trying to upload and it once it showed on the screen, I would try press '3' where it would register it as a '9'.
I am still very new and beginner with the whole world of arduino and I really don't want to get put off this hobby because of a few - probably - simple errors. I have tried fixing each problem by myself by looking online for possible solutions but it always seems to fault me in some way.
If anyone can lend a helping hand I would be most grateful because I am very lost and I would really appreciate some experienced guidance
