Hello all, I’ve been trying to get my red/white/black Inky pHAT to work ever since I’ve got it. I am unable to change the display at all, and feel like I’ve tried all that I could based on other forum posts and various tips. The display will not change with any of the example scripts or any custom scripts I use.
I have tried all of the following with a Pi Zero W and a Pi 4:
-ran all example scripts, shows (seemingly) successful messages. For Example, when running calendar-phat.py:
python3 calendar-phat.py --colour “red”
Inky pHAT: Calendar
Draws a calendar for the current month to your Inky pHAT.
This example uses a sprite sheet of numbers and month names which are
composited over the background in a couple of different ways.
Detected Red pHAT (High-Temp)
-used 3 different SD cards with both lite and normal versions of Raspian
-reseated the ribbon cable on the pHAT
sudo pip install --upgrade inkyphat to upgrade the software
-upgrading and updating Raspian w/
sudo apt upgrade &
sudo apt update
And of course trying all of these things multiple times to see if I missed a step. Please, I would love to not have to spend another $25 on one of these things if I don’t have to. I must be missing something, or have killed my pHAT somehow.
Thank you in advance for any input on this issue!
