  • I just got one of these in the mail and fired it up. I am really excited about it because it is perfect for so many projects. However, after popping in the Photon and powering it via the micro USB port on the Photon the OLED does not work with the sample code. It does not even light up. The default for the jumpers and the example code is SPI. Do I need to put a jumper across the VD/VB jumper since I am not using the battery shield? <—- Edit: The answer is no. I read the documentation and poured over the schematics for quite awhile to determine that jumper across VD/VB is not required. I squeezed the OLED as I was checking voltages around the board. There must have been a loose solder connection where the OLED ribbon connects to the board. It started working when I was squeezing it. It has worked since.

  • How did you remove the shrouds successfully? Is there a way to easily release them?

No public wish lists :(
