  • Talking Tetris Clock

    Hello ,I think I have a problem with the display. After I got the circuit board from tindy, I set everything up, programmed the ESP32 and connected 12 volts. The clock then forms an acsess point and can be reached at 192.168.4.1. But everything on the display remains dark, no flickering or flashing, nothing. I had similar problems a few years ago with a Tetris clock. There it was the chipsets. Displays were produced with different chipsets. Mark, you must also have experience with this, because you have already provided 4 different options. I have tested all of them but without success. Here are the chips used on my display:P2.5 64x64 - 32S - V2.0Chipone ICND2153APMW245BFM TC7258GN74HC04SI'am using Arduino IDE 2.0.0-beta.12 and ESP32 V2.0.3(With the Arduino IDE 1.8.19 ESP32 V1.0.6 I get c…

In the log, I see that characters are missing at the end of both the SSID and the password. My SSID is 19 characters long and contains spaces and password is 21 characters long. Any idears?Many greetingsBurkhard

    No, nothingUnfortunately, I don't have another panel. You have 2 panels with 32x16, 32 scan connected together, right ? I have a 32x16 panel (3 years old) from a morphing clock. But I have to dismantle the clock so that I can use the display. We are going on holiday in 2 days. After that I can test it. Will the programme run on 64x32? DisplaysBest Regards Burkhard

    HI; ok, I have now flashed the bin file by the web flasher. Flashing was ok, but the result is the same - nothing is working. There is only time by time a simpson krying. Changes on the browser site are not possble. If I click to "set", then it will be changed to "Refresh Browser" and more changes are not possible, only after rebootHere ist the print out from the monitor16:31:45.608 -> ** The following settings are loaded from Spiffs: **16:31:45.654 -> 16:31:45.654 -> Top Text: HALLO BURKI16:31:45.700 -> Bottom text: kdjflkdsjgöifdjkfdölhköjhö16:31:45.700 -> Brightness: 7816:31:45.700 -> Display type: 64x64x1NC16:31:45.747 -> Animation speed clock: 4016:31:45.747 -> Scrolling Speed top text: 4016:31:45.747 -> Scrolling Speed bottom text: 4016…

  • Talking Tetris Clock

    Hello, a very interesting project. I built another Tetris clock for my grandchild a few years ago and installed it in the children's room. Two things came up which are useful for children's rooms.1. It would be good if you could switch off the display at night. The LEDs are very bright and disturbing at night. 2. because the LEDs are very bright, an automatic brightness control (ABC) would be very pleasant.Maybe they can integrate these functions in a new version.Kind regards B.Drechsler

    Hallo Herrmann, can it be that there are Chips on the display named FM6126A ? Than You have to add this line in the sketch : display.setDriverChip(FM6126A);Add it after void setup()....have a look to the code schnipzel.Best RegardsBurkhard

  • Morphing Digital Clock

    Hi SnowHead, I was very happy to read the information that You have newly created a possibility to dim the display/ numbers of the morphingclock during the night time. Unfortunately for my it is not possible to compile the file. I always get this information :Arduino: 1.8.8 (Mac OS X), Board: "ESP32 Dev Module, Disabled, Default, QIO, 80MHz, 4MB (32Mb), 921600, None"In file included from /Users/marlisdrechsler/Documents/Arduino/HariFun_166_Morphing_Clock/Latest/MorphingClock/MorphingClock.ino:11:0:WTAClient.h:23:25: error: ESP8266WiFi.h: No such file or directorycompilation terminated.exit status 1ESP8266WiFi.h: No such file or directoryDo You have any idea what is wrong ?Thanks Burkhard

  • Hi Editor1979, very nice, that You are working on this feature . Either You make it dimmable or there is the possibility to set a on/off time switch . I hope you will share the result. If You need help for testing please contact me (drechsler1952@gmail.com)Best RegardsBurkhard Drechsler
