Mini 12864 Panel (RGB) in Repetier

Hi guys, 

I've been trying to implement a Display to my 3D Printer. I wanna use this one: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07ST1W3JH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I tried to use this config in config.h
#define SD_EXTENDED_DIR 1 /** Show extended directory including file length. Don't use this with Pronterface! */
#define SD_RUN_ON_STOP ""
#define SD_STOP_HEATER_AND_MOTORS_ON_STOP 1
#define ARC_SUPPORT 1
#define FEATURE_MEMORY_POSITION 1
#define FEATURE_CHECKSUM_FORCED 0
#define FEATURE_FAN_CONTROL 1
#define FEATURE_FAN2_CONTROL 0
#define FEATURE_CONTROLLER 11
#define ADC_KEYPAD_PIN -1
#define LANGUAGE_EN_ACTIVE 1
#define LANGUAGE_DE_ACTIVE 1

The display light is on and it seems to work - if I turn the naviagation wheel and press it, the printer homes... But I do not see anything at the display. It's just bright. 

Anybody done this before? Some ideas? Don't wanna use Marlin - I've done some modifications in my firmware and don't want do do all this again in Marlin. 

Thanks in advance!

  • Guess it is not FEATURE_TYPE 11 which is the reprapgraphic display. It will only work if you use same pins and same display driver. Since it does not display my guess is that it uses a different display chip requiring other settings. There are several types available in firmware also not all have pin definitions for all boards. But that would just setting right pins.
  • Thanks for answering. Could you tell me where to find the pin settings of the EXP1 and EXP2? Forgott to mention: I'm using a MKS Base 1.6 board. 
  • Pins are only a problem if there is no definition. Question is what display chip the display uses. The RRD display with type 11 uses ST7920 chips.

    Pin numbers can be found in pin description of your board. reprap.org wiki also has them for many boards.
