need help with tft lcd shield

I am having trouble with my qr4 5265s01 g3/4 tp28017 tft lcd shield. Does anyone else have this problem and can someone help me?

It would be helpful to describe what trouble you are having!

A wild guess is that this thread may help.

All I can do is make the screen turn white and I cannot find out how to do much else.

Which Arduino are you using?
Which IDE version?
What library have you tried?
Where did you get the library from?

The more information you give, the more likely you will get help, otherwise this is going to be like a game of “20 Questions” and take a long time.

sorry I am new, I am using the arduino uno with the 1.6.7 ide, I have tried the Adafruit_TFTLCD and the TFTLCD-Library-master libraries

OK. Assuming you bought the display on the web, post a link to the vendors web page showing the display you have got.

Also post pictures of the front and back of your display so that the pin-out can be established and to see if you have a display with serial (e.g SPI) or parallel interface.

It came off of amazon a year ago, but I cant find anything about it online

You have a regular Blue 2.8" Mcufriend shield. Try the MCUFRIEND_kbv library.

Run the LCD_ID_readreg.ino sketch if necessary.


Thank you that library worked
