remove this, connect brightness directly to the Vcc and Gnd and wait for results

@MrMan
In your code, I see:
// MrAqua v2.4.0
// -Update auto-dimming to use an idle after x minutes timer instead of reading ambient light


That means that auto brightness is not working in your code?

Yup, it never worked that well for me so I had it disabled. Now it just dims after not touching it for a while.

My plan is to build an led unit and send serial commands wirelessly instead of running the pwm wires across, to reduce the number of cables in my stand.

:-) yes, it's a good idea. I think that the bluetooth connection will be good solution to control from PC or android phone

I use I2C and there are only 4 wires running from the hood. I use the PCA chip and can control 16 PWM channels.

All LED drivers and 12->5 volt regulator are in the hood.

Nothing happens if I reinsert the card after.

Any suggestions?

SD Card Reader (one on screen didn't work): $3 on amazon $3 on amazon
<2 GB SD Card: Under $5, but I had one
Only other guess is where the images are on the card root or folder? No clue if it makes a difference but sometimes does..

Yup, the raw images need to be directly on the drive, not in any folders. I think some SD cards have issues, I've got two and one works on my controller I have running and the other works on my backup controller i use to test software but i can't swap them. Maybe try getting another card? I believe for the iAqua software it needs to be less than 4GB as well.

I had a lot of issues initially with images getting corrupted. It took three tries before I found an sdcard that worked reliably.

Hi every body...

Today arrived my 5 PCBs, It look like O2Surplus design, just it is 10x10cm and I take out 2 of the 3 sensors of pH, Or, DO. So I hope it does not have any problem at the vias. There is a lot of difference between what I did and what I had to do : )

Have a nice day

Guys, I have an SSD1289 3.2" TFT and I can't make touch work. I have Elecfreaks v2.2

It does not even recognize my stylus for the calibration sketch.
Is the TFT touch damaged?
