Re: Nokia Pi LCD

It appears I need to use your code, texy's doesn't work with bitmaps properly... would you be able to post your code on github, I had to fix it the last time I copy and pasted :/

Re: Nokia Pi LCD

My contrast was 147 I think, the last time I tested it. But can be as low as 142ish.

Shame I can't see your map :/
And have you considered putting a 'safety' border around your map? That could help with risk of affecting the server when going too far out.

Re: Nokia Pi LCD

In the newer python code there are a few lines that allow you to load a bitmap image. Just use the variable in the main section.

Re: Nokia Pi LCD

You may want to extend that range, my optimum is between 145-146 (0x91-0x92) 145 flickers slightly while 146 shows very faint lines but both OK looking directly at it.
140 is the limit, it flickers quite a bit and fairly light.

I'd rather not go beyond 207 (0xcf)

Re: Nokia Pi LCD

The same one as 'Paultnl 8th nov'

The screen is a 5110, is does show very faintly under the black the text but as far as I can see its characters are too wide and could be too big... so its working but needs a tweak some how.
