had to try 3 different usb cables
« on: September 15, 2018, 04:31:56 PM »
just FYI, I was about to ask for help becuase my tinyscreen+ wasn't showing up at all when I plugged it in. I had tried two different USB micro cables on 2 different computers. Then I tried a 3rd cable, and now it is working fine. Touchy cables or touchy connector, I wonder.

Hello littlejohn,

A common issue with micro USB cables that many hobbyists encounter is that not every cable can transmit data. Many cables only transfer power, so it may be that the first two cables you tried are charge-only and that's why you unable to program the TinyScreen+ at first.

Whatever the issue was, I'm glad you were able to resolve it!
