I recently got an OLED hat for my raspberry PI zero W.
But can't seem to get it to work at all and think it might be dead on arrival as there is no sign of it working at all.
But to be sure just wanted to ask if im missing something before i request a refund since i'm not really that familiar with the GPIO stuff.
I tried following the instructions (on a fresh install of 2018-03-13-raspbian-stretch-lite) which basically are:
- Connect it to the PI GPIO Header (i connected all pins)
- Enable SPI (raspi-config)
- Install Python Libraries:
python-dev python-smbus python-serial python-imaging python-pip libfreetype6-dev libjpeg-dev
unrar and sudo python setup.py the following:
https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages ... 6.3.tar.gz
https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages ... 3.2.tar.gz
sudo -H pip install --upgrade luma.oled
- Run Python Demo
Every step goes without errors but running any of the 3 python demos nothing happens.
I tried the other demos as well (WiringPI & bcm2835) but again nothing happens.
I tried it via I2C as well but I2Cdetect will show -- for everything.
Am i missing some step on the commandline to get it to work or do i need to only connect certain GPIO pins for it to work?
