Tell us about yourself!
Hay,I made it and it is a great project to learn from, for me it has certainly sense to made project like you did.BTW i live in the Netherlands (Rotterdam) and it is unbelieveble how much artificial light we have unfortunate.Thanks again and keep making "simple "projects.Regards Tobo.
hi,Use only the library NtpClient-master (download internet ) and via IDE arduino NtpClientLib 2.0.5 No another Ntp librariesThis is working for my sketch.
Thanks, yes it is also Sryled, see link https://www.aliexpress.com/item/64x32-P3-Led-Digital-Clock-RGB-Led-Matrix-192-x-96mm-Support-ESP8266-Controller/32968919166.html?spm=a2g0s.13010208.99999999.260.33863c00mhuPrf
Thanks for letting us know, does the board come from Sryled ? On there Aliexpress site there is now a P3 panel that should be compatible with ESP 8266.Tobo.
Hi,I got the following message from Sryled,""..""Hello dear, we will not use FM6126A chip anymore. Besides this chip, others chips are all working with ESP8266 controller.""...""Bye Tobo
Hmm, sounds familiar, after i thought to change to wintertime suddenly the scetches where giving errors so eventually i deleted everething and started also on a 2e computer.I will make a list with sketch revs and so on and also the files i deleted.I come back ASAP.
1.If possible install from scratch onanother computer.2.Backup.3.Delete everthing about Arduino andespecial the arduino15 (make a backup) atc:\Users\***\AppData\Local\Arduino15\staging\libraries4.After I deleted this I got results,problebly Arduino keeps using this files even I you change them elsware. I donot remember if I deleted the complete arduino15 but if doing so, you have toinstall the board manager files also.5.Arduino 1.8.76.Sketchbook locationc:\Users\***\Documents\Arduino(***=yourown location)7.Additional boards managerhttp:/Arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json8.https:/dl.espressif.com/dl/package_esp32_index.json9.AdaFruit Gfx library 1.3.410.PxMatrix by Dominic Buchstaller 1.3.011.ArduinoJSON version 5.13.2 by BenoitBlanchon5.13.312.WiFiManager by Tzapu0...

Pfff, latest problem solved. Update esp8266by esp8266 community version 2.5.0 beta2 is causing problems for my scetch . reinstalled with 2.4.2 and ok.Terrible,terrible !!!!!!!!!
I agree with you, it is unbelieveble whats happening. But nothing is strange anymore.I give an example about problems i have suddenly. I updated Arduino AVR boards from version 22 to version 23 and looks like no wifi anymore.At the moment i am investigeting what happening ????????.Unfortunate i have no programming skills.with arduino.I suggest to leave it for tonight i have to think about it .I will come back via the mail.PS one question left, are you able to upload the sketch error free?? the most left button.
Is the power of the panel ok ? ie separate power for the P3?
Hi, FYI , i was this evening building a another clock and i made i mistake in the wiring D0-D8 and got a screen like yours so a great possibility it can cause your problems with the screen-layout.Hope this helps , good luck.Tobo.
To me, it looks like something wrong with the wiring ???Good luck with a new start.Test if possible with the sketch from KoljaS, i used it and it known working.https://github.com/kolle86/MorphingClockRemixRemixPS I changed a few things in it but thats a anothers story.
Hi, I ordered my P3 panel on 10-11(november)-18 and received it on 22-11-18 by SRYLED Display Store.This is my 3e panel and no problems. See pictures in the discussions.Hope this helps if there could be some factory hardware problems around those dates.Regards Tobo.
i made it ! Great project and thanks to all who all the extra's like weather, humidity, temperatur etc.
Tobo made it!!
Tobo made it!
Thanks, i already did that and it works except for the icons like rain,sun,etc.what i did now was sketchnumber 73 : display.display ( 70 ) changed to 20 so everything got lower brightness. Is this allowed ??regards Tobo.
Yes i tested it and looks that this is working smooterWith is this allowed i meant if it could damage the display. iam not so native english so maybe not the correct expression.
Hi KoljaS,I have made your clock and it it working fine but i have one question about it.I would like to adjust the weather-symbols ( icon ) with a lower brightness would you please give me some advice how to do that because i do not get it done.Regards Tobo.
Thanks KoljaS, works great, very usefull extras.regards Tobo.
Hi Technikker,Iam glad that is worked finally. The only difference is that in the phone menu i changed also the SSID and PW with my original credentials and put them in again.It is a pity I know not enough about the programming because for example in the scetch from Vincent about the 64x64 display with a made also the summer/winter time worked automatic so it has to do with how to program. See below for the conversation.(the big red display in French.And also thanks for the explantion, always usefull.regards Tobo.
Hi Technikker,I had the same problem with the wintertime. What worked for me was to change the time in the basic screen via the procudure with 192.168.4.1 and than set the time to 1 ( i did that with my phone.) I hope you understand this because i am not a native englishregards Tobo.
Hi Trenck,Just an another color, everething works fine, thanks
Hi Trenck,Thanks very much for your quick respons. Nice work you did for "not a programmer " i could not have done that !! I am going to look how you did it to learn for it and make ofcourse the clock. Thanks again, regards Tobo.
Great, Vincent, very nice.
Hi Trenck,Would you please send the code with the small seconds, i have been trying but can not find it where to change. Regards Tobo.
Thanks Vincent, i am going to test this as well.Tobo.
Hi Vincent,Thanks for the explanation, indeed i was focussed because one of my neightbors has alzheimer , unfortunate.I made already the display also in blue, is looking great indeed.Nice you got the ESP 32 working , if you don't mind, would you share the code for the ESP 32 ? I have more ESP 32 boards then ESP 8266.About the flickering of the display, i have seen it with the another clocks also.Nice day to you also, Tobo
Vincent"s clock made by Tobo
Hi Vincent,As you see, clock up and running.One question about the color, you are talking about red color is the best. How about that ?Has it to do with the P3 display or are there another issues?Thanks for your help sofar. BTW is there some progress with ESP 32.groet Tobo.
Hi Vincent,I do not know a lot about programming but maybe this link could be helpfull??groet Tobo
Thanks Vincent for your fast replay, let you know when finished.
Hello Vincent,As i expect to receive the P3 64x64 any moment, i would ask you about the hardware connections between the matrix in and matrix out . Is this desame as for the P3 64x32 board?Thanks, Tobo.
VincentThanks very much, i am going to order the display so that will take a while..Also thanks for the code.Au revoir , Tobo.I made the box from lego
