I recently purchased an Arduino TFT display to work with my Arduino Uno. Unfortunately, I have not the display to work. I did get the backlight to work. However, no matter what the example sketch is (from the Arduino IDE) uploaded without my modification, I only get horizontal bars (see Graphic). This is with or without a micro-SD card in place The one sketch that I would really like to get working is “TFTdisplaytext”. In this sketch, TFT and SPI libraries are included. I have carefully checked all wires and connections and buzzed out all contacts. They all seem to be correct. The Arduino Uno itself works using simple LED sketches and the serial port works.
Thanks for your help.
