I’m a noob with limited skills, knowledge, and I’ve got the same blank screen as all the others ( https://forums.pimoroni.com/search?q=0.9spi%20category%3A5 )
I’m using a Rpi zero, with clean install of latest Rasperian,
Have enabled SPI
I’m not using a break out garden, (so have backlight=18 set to suit the actual BL wired to 18) My wiring goes to the right pins and can’t find any solder defects.
I’ve followed all the latest installation instructions.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install build-essential python3-dev python3-smbus python3-pip python3-pil python3-numpy git
sudo pip3 install st7735
curl https://get.pimoroni.com/st7735 | bash
Non of the examples make any effect on the screen which stays blank (you can see a sight illumination when the Rpi is on) I don’t get any error codes when running the examples so I’m stumped
I’ve spent a full day trying to get this working and am getting so frustrated… any help would be greatly appreciated… I’d buy another and use solderless with a break-out garden (to rule out solder defects, or the board being bad), but having read the other threads for this screen I’ve not got much confidence in getting it working .
Non of the other threads conclude with successful outcomes or solutions to get their screen working… so I have to ask … Has anyone got it working?
