Inkyphat not working


#1

Hi,

Just attached my inkyphat to a pi zero w and successfully installed all the software for it. I can run the python programs but nothing updates to the screen.

OS is Rasbian GNU/Linux 9.4 Stretch.
inkyphat is attached using a solder-less header

Not sure what other info you need but happy to supply more on request.

Solderless header as in Hammer header? Inky pHat firmly pressed down?


#3

Yeah. The phat is secure. I think when I attach the phat when the pi is powered on it spits a load of lines out to the command line but I figured that was because it should be attached when the power is off.


#4

Solved. Really pushed down on the hat and it clicked in further than previously. Screen now updates correctly!

That was an easy one, glad you got it working. I make it a habit not to remove or add pHats or Hats while the Pi is powered up.
