Inky wHAT ghosting and lighter red than expected


Hi everybody…long time listener, first time caller.

I’ve been playing around with our fancy new red Inky wHAT and am having some disappointing results.

I wanted to use the wHAT to show some business metrics, and have adapted the name badge example to show how many orders we have taken. Right now it is flipping between our two businesses every 5 minutes, and as it does so, we are getting some ghosting and lighter than expected coloration.

The pics below should speak for themselves, but I will also note that when we first boot the Pi, the red is much darker. It seems to become lighter as we go.


More images since the forum will only allow me to post 1 image at a time.


And here’s an image running the name badge example after the first two.
