Hi, I’ve just received an InkyPHAT (RED) purchased from Little Bird Electronics here in Australia. Runing through the samples I’ve found that the EEPROM isn’t detected (I assume the one I got was old-ish stock) I tried it on 2 different pi zero 2 w, both running the latest install of raspbian. SPI and I2C is ebabled on both.
Stepping into the code I find that
auto.py gets a
none from the call to
I’ve ended up passing
--colour=red as arguments, that gets things running. Unfortunately the examples aren’t displaying correctly (see below). I’ve run
clean.py a few times but it’s not helping.
A few questions:
- Do I have an old version? I’ve included a photo of the back of the phat
- I thought it used spi to access the phat, but it seems to be using i2c, is the i2c just for the eeprom?
- If it’s the newer version and I need i2c to read the eeprom, is there a way to debug the i2c issue.
- The logo was clear when it arrived, so I’m assuing it’s a coding issue. Anything else I could try?
