Re: Support for a SPI TFT 2.4'' screen

I pushed another update, hopefully it will solve the issue. It supports 16bit (5-6-5) channel. But still puzzled why on datasheet it mentioned 18bit for LCD.

Re: Support for a SPI TFT 2.4'' screen

Shahin, now the framebuffer works properly
See:
IMG_0094.jpg
IMG_0093.jpg

But still there's an issue when printing process starts and when using /dev/fb1 or /dev/fb0. Printing is stops after displaying first slice. It's only a fast blink, then screen goes black. I've no idea why...  I must add, the picture that blinks seems to be correct.

See:

Re: Support for a SPI TFT 2.4'' screen

Marvelous.
Now the printing process goes smooth. (nanoDLP build 1725)
I'll prepare informations how to connect and use SPI TFTs with your software and will put them somewhere here. It should be useful for other makers, I think.

Thank you for your time and effort. Good job!

Re: Support for a SPI TFT 2.4'' screen

Hi

I am trying to setup and use a 3.5 inch lcd Kuman off Amazon.  Have you been able to create some documentation on the process you used.  The Lcd I have plugs on top of the pi currently

Thanks

Re: Support for a SPI TFT 2.4'' screen

I have been able to get nanodlp working on my 3.5 inch screen, but I have one issue.

How can I remove the cursor which is flashing in the bottom left corner?

Thanks
