I have a TFT 1.8 "Arduino and Arduino Leonardo. I connected the TFT as shown in http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/TFTtoBoards. I loaded the example Arduino TFT text activating the lines of code for leonardo and commenting on others. The result is that the display does not display text, just stripes. No if the library is not properly implemented. I use Arduino 1.0.6. greetings
I'm having the same problem, horizontal black bands. Your post is the only reference iv'e so far found regarding this issue, so if I get anywhere with it ill post it here.
