Adafruit 128x64 OLED Bonnet - no display?


I’m using this with a RPi Zero WH, all brand new from Pimoroni.
I downloaded the Adafruit examples and I can:

  1. Read button-presses
  2. Detect that display is present on the I2C bus, using “i2cdetect -y 1” (shows up at address 0x3c)

However the screen never displays anything, e.g. when I run “python”

Based on the above I’m assuming the display is actually broken.

Any ideas? Is there something different about the RPi Zero WH which means I need to change something? All the default choices in “” (e.g. the type of display, using I2C not SPI) look correct.


Before writing it off as dead you should ask on the Adafruit forums- unfortunately I’ve not got any experience with this display or any of the common issues with it, so I don’t know what to suggest. -

You should, hopefully, get some useful answers from them.
