Hi, I use uC 32 and Basic I/O shield in my microcontroller programming class. I am using utility functions provided in class to display strings on the OLED, but it is not working. I am not sure whether it is me that made mistake or the OLED is broken. All other things (SW, BTN, ADC, and LED's) are working fine with the utility functions provided to control them. I tried to get help from TA, but with remote class and all, it is rather difficult. Can someone share a easy way to check if the OLED is functional? I am using Pickit3 to program uC32. Let me know if you need any more information.
Hi, I'm a newbie trying to learn about the Genesys 2 board and would like to program the onboard OLED as an exercise. I'm following this tutorial. There is a prominent warning that says "Important! Make sure to turn off the OLED display before shutting down or reprogramming your board." Why? What will happen if I don't turn off the OLED display and simply turn off the power switch? Will it get damaged? This makes me very nervous to try my own programs since I will probably mess up at some point. Can someone reassure me that I won't do any permanent damage? Thanks!
