fixed: Flickering Adafruit 20x4 LCD

Recommended Posts

Hey Aida Team,

i have some issues with this Adafruit LCD wich is recomended. On the two Pictures you can see what aida should do and what can i see on the Display. The First line is completely erased and the screen is flickering. The Adafruit Backpack is set to 20x4 LCD. When the Display is updating you can see the right setting for a millisecond.

But if i change the LCD Setting in AIDA to 16x2, and leave the Backpack in 20x4 mode,  the Screen isn flickering and the first line is there. I think you got a little problem with the 20x4 Driver. I have Searched for the code but i cant find it, to edit it if i found the failure. 

 

Please give me response for this BUG. I have extra ordert this overpriced 50€ LCD for it. 

Greetings Daniel from Germany

The issue will be fixed in the next AIDA64 beta update.  I'll post a message into this topic once the new beta build is available for download.

Hy Fiery, 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR REPLY!!!

i have fixed this problem. Basicly it isnt a problem, its just a wrong Setting in the Adafruit Backpack (This is the Backpack https://www.adafruit.com/product/781). 

You must set the Display to auto-line-wrap off with 0xFE 0x44.

 

It is not the problem from AIDA Software.

 

But i have one Wish at the next Update for this ADAFRUIT DISPLAY. My Display is a RGB LCD, it would be nice if we can change the Color for the Display or a Background light if e.q. CPU is to hot Diplay turns from GREEN to RED. 

 

 

Greetings Daniel

It's great that you could solve it by yourself.  But, in order to avoid such issues in the future, we've changed AIDA64 to send the Auto Line Wrap Off command at Adafruit LCD init as well.

Make sure to upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme available at:

https://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

      Hey there,
      I replaced my old Z10 with the new Z10 RGB.  When i try to enable the LCD i get:
      Error: HID device 3842-2601 not found.
      I have the latest beta installed (sept. 16).
      Cheers!

      BeadaFrame Display Kit is an ARM Cortex-A7 development platform which bundled with a 7" TFT LCD Display. It can be powered and communicated with PC Host by a single Micro USB cable. Currently we use it as a secondary PC monitor for display of hardware status through Remote Sensor LCD.
      The question is --  is there any way to implement it as a native support of AIDA LCD screen? We are running Debian Stretch on the ARM Cortex-A7 core.


       
      And more details of this display kit:
      CPU
      NXP/Freescale ARM Cortex-A7 i.MX6ULL
      RAM
      512MB DDR3L
      Storage
      16GB/32GB eMMC
      Connectivities
      1 x WIFI 802.11 b/g/n module(AP6212) 1 x USB 2.0 Host(Type A) 1 x USB 2.0 OTG(Micro-USB) Display

      Dear all,
      I am trying to figure out the best option for a small (max 7'') external screen to use with SensorPanel.
      I find lots of options on eBay that I suppose are all viable (e.g., https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7inch-HDMI-LCD-H-with-case-1024x600-IPS-Capacitive-Touch-Screen-Audio-Output/133067577890).
       
      What I am unsure at the moment:
      - Is the quality/resolution of the screen important?
      - Is touch input needed/used?
      - Is there any difference (limitations) between the three available options (using an HDMI connected screen, a USB connected one and/or an affordable Android tablet)? 
       
      Any input would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
       
      Best,
      S

      Would be nice if you could rotate output 90 degrees in AIDA 64 LCD config for Logitech ARX.
      This, so you can get tablet mode.
