    Teensy 4.1 + MSP2807 (V1.2)

    Hi team, I recently bought a Teensy 4.1 and I am having a hard time running an MSP2807 (V1.2) display; I think the issue is because of the frequency in which the T4.1 "talks" with the MSP2807. I have already tried what you indicate in the link: https://www.pjrc.com/store/display_ili9341_touch.html, but the screen remains illuminated white. I am using Teensyduino for the codes and I have taken the "graphictest" example that the ILI9341_t3 library inside teensyduino libraries. Additionally, the MSP2807 has a touchscreen, but I am not enabling it yet. I have some photos but I couldn't upload them. This 2.8 "screen works fine with UNO R3 and MEGA. I need to replace these with a more powerful CPU, that's why I need to migrate to Teensy 4.1. I appreciate in advance the help you can give me

    Again hard to know what is going on without details about the display and your wiring and...

    Is it this one: http://www.lcdwiki.com/2.8inch_SPI_M...41_SKU:MSP2807
    Which is another ILI9341 display?

    Again it would help to see your wiring. Could be something simple like the pins are not properly soldered to Teensy. or running to wrong place.

    Could be a library issue? Again can not say much without knowing more. If you are using the ili9341_t3 library. What version of Teensyduino are you running? Assuming something reasonably recent, it should work as long as the wiring matches and that you are using proper SPI pins.

    As for the ILI9341 screen stays illuminated white. That is because the backlight pin (LED) is run directly to voltage through resistor. On one of my boards, which was modeled after one of frank's boards the LED pin is connected to an PWM enabled IO pin through a transistor (or transistors) and you can control the brightness of the screen using analogWrite to that pin...

    Thank you for your quick response and my apologies for answering you at these times due to work. Answering to @MarkT and @KurtE, the link you sent me (http://www.lcdwiki.com/2.8inch_SPI_M...41_SKU:MSP2807), is that i am using for references, notice in that link the photo of the board show the following description: "2.8 TFT SPI 240X320 V1.1", and the board i am working is "2.8 TFT SPI 240X320 V1.2", I don't know if the version change has to do with any difference. Just as a reference, look at the following link because this is the correct board i am using (V1.2): https://store.siqma.com/msp2807-tft-touch.html.

    I continue answering (@FrankB):

    Librarie: ILI9341_t3
    Teensyduino: 1.53
    Arduino: 1.8.13


    Pin connections:
    ILI9341 Teensy 4.1
    VCC VIN
    GND GND
    CS Pin 10 (CS)
    RESET Pin with 3.3V (in the middle of Pin GND and PIN 23)
    D/C Pin 9 (PWM/OUT1C)
    SDI (MOSI) Pin 11 (MOSI)
    SCK Pin 13 SCK (pin in the middle of pin 14 and GND), this is the pin of LED.
    LED (BL) VIN (connected using a 100 ohm resistor). This VIN-Pin is the same i use to connect MSP2807 VCC.
    SDO (MISO) Pin 12 (MISO)

    Next CODE is an example of library ILI9341_t3 under name "graphicstest"; i change the serial.begin command to 115200 (original was 9600 - baud_rate)and I also played around for a moment specifying the other pins and changing the frequency in tft.Clock and checking this with an oscilloscope on pin 13. This showed me some inconsistent flickering on the screen.:

    I'm sorry for the previous connection as it did not look good. I repeat in a better way:

    Pin connections:
    ILI9341 ----- Teensy 4.1
    VCC ----------- VIN
    GND ---------- GND
    CS ----------- Pin 10 (CS)
    RESET -------- Pin with 3.3V (in the middle of Pin GND and PIN 23)
    D/C ---------- Pin 9 (PWM/OUT1C)
    SDI (MOSI) --- Pin 11 (MOSI)
    SCK ----------- Pin 13 SCK (pin in the middle of pin 14 and GND), this is the pin of LED.
    LED (BL) ------ VIN (connected using a 100 ohm resistor). This VIN-Pin is the same i use to connect MSP2807 VCC.
    SDO (MISO) --- Pin 12 (MISO)

    Dear Group, after so many tests, I replaced this new screen with similar one, apparently the first MSP2807 has intermittent damage. By replacing it, everything was working without errors. Thanks anyway for the support.
