InkyPhat issues

Having some issues with the inkyphat with my pi zero WH.

I was initially able to set up the calendar, but it never changed dates, and is now fading quite a bit. Since then I’ve been unable to use any of the other examples (name badge, weather, etc.). Now, after trying some updates, I get the following error messages whenever I try to use one of the examples:

File “calendar-phat.py”, line 206, in
inky_display.show()
File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/inky/inky_ssd1608.py”, line 236, in show
self._update(buf_a, buf_b, busy_wait=busy_wait)
File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/inky/inky_ssd1608.py”, line 174, in _update
self.setup()
File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/inky/inky_ssd1608.py”, line 155, in setup
self._busy_wait()
File “/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/inky/inky_ssd1608.py”, line 163, in _busy_wait
raise RuntimeError(“Timeout waiting for busy signal to clear.”)
RuntimeError: Timeout waiting for busy signal to clear.

At this point I’m wondering whether it’s an issue with the inkyphat itself, or is it just me (most likely). Any way I could (a) fix the errors above and then (b) get it to display the name badge etc.

Thanks in advance
