Nano every and TFT display problem

So yes it is a generic Display, followed the display wire instructions SSD1306 OLED
D1 to SCL
D2 to SDA
3.3 to VCC
GND to G
Installed on a ESP8266 , can only think It is bad, after it is connected for awhile the display that never lights up gets warm. Thanks

The first thing appears to be that the SSD1306 is described as a 128 x 64 Dot Matrix driver.
You have shown a display with a 240 x 240 resolution. You have probably incorrectly identified the display controller.
Again, can you post some links to some details.

Please explain a bit more, how is it you got I am using a 240x240 resolution. As far as where it came from I can probably show the link to BangGood if you think that would help .Thanks

? ? ?
Are you Lardos, the OP (originator of this thread) but using another account ?
The 240 * 240 resolution comes from the Video posted in the OP.

The display in the banggood link looks nothing like that in the video in post #1

No sir I am not that person, sorry for your confusion.

Well, at least you did better that the OP in that you managed to produce a vendor link for your display.
A moderator should probably separate the thread so your (LarryFos) posts go into a new thread.

So now you have your own thread, let's summarise the situation.

You have an ESP8266 (contrary to the title which, currently, refers to a Nano Every)
You have a 0.96 inch display which may be one of the ones reachable via the link you supplied: ssd1306 oled display - Buy ssd1306 oled display with free shipping | Banggood Shopping .
You have wired it like this:

The display gets warm but shows no other signs of life.

Yes you now have it LOL

I ran this program and got no 12c devices found, so my guess is that the device is dead.
Thanks :smile:
