Is my display broken?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone can help me, I have a 1.44" display hooked up to an arduino uno. I got it working using the example supplied from:

1.44'' 128x 128 TFT LCD with SPI Interface - Elecrow.

For some reason a large part of display seems to be corrupted(?). Attached photo.

Am I doing something wrong or is the screen broken?

Your display is fine.

When these 128x128 and 128x160 displays first appeared on Ebay, some were configured wrong.
So the libraries make allowances for the "missing 32 rows"

Your modern display has probably got the correct hardware configuration.
You just need to disable/enable the 32 row software kludge in the library.


Thats good news, may I ask how to do that?

Look for a library from Bodmer. e.g. for ST7735 and/or ILI9163
