Hi...sorry a litle off topic but still on, I think...

is there any one in proces of buying parts for UGS from GB ( preamp, with relay volume conron, dislay...)
I would like to know how much all parts did come out?
where did you buy those parts ?

I have send request for parts from farnell via their representative here in Croatia but it come out at around 450-500 Euro without display !!! I think it's little to much...

at the end how about group buy for the parts

For GB in France, it turned out around 300 euros without case and JFETs, but all the rest included (RCA and XLR connectors, etc...).
We used Farnell, Futurlec.com, Digikey, Crystalfontz.com and eBay for the relays.

The GB was for about 30 sets if I remember well.

No hard feelings, that GB was more than a year ago

Default Debugging display 2

Hi guys,

Built display type 2, flashed it ( 3 times ) after initial tests but....
it's looks to me as if my data is reaching the display but it's junk!

I checked the processor, solder looks good.

The actions look ok, display changes when i sellect different inputs, it even responds to the encoder and sets the led flashing, waiting to memorize new values.

but it's all junk in the crystalfonts...and only the right half of the display gets data.

When system comes up the first picture ( hello message ) comes up ...then after a while the second pictures displays....as i say motions are ok...but display is junk.

any help from you UGS pros would be welcome.

Hi CeeVee,
You're the first one who's getting so weird messages
You've flashed the right software version ?
I recently debugged a board from the same GB as yours, and it worked perfectly with this display, so the layout doesn't seem to be the cause...
What is the exact reference of the display ?
Sorry for that mess

Hi Cheff,

Yes the software is the right one.

The display i'm using for this one is:CFAH2002L-TMI-ET

...but i'm guessing i might have connected it to the wrong socket.
The Vincent GB buy board i'm using has a socket at left side ( the one i used )for "100mmx40mm LCD" and this display is much bigger .

The other , top, socket is for a 146x43 connector....????

I'm beggining to suspect i used the socket that is for the optrex.

I don't have the pdf showing the connection of the Crystalfontz to this board.

Cross-checked with Crystal data sheet, seems the socket is correct.
Also reflashed with the software from link you send Cheff...just to make sure.

Same result...same junk.

I suppose you've not forgotten to flash the eeprom too...
It puzzles me quite a lot, and I've got to give it a thought...
Sorry for inconvenience...

Could you test your display on the other version (the slim one) ? It requires an adaptator for correct pinning, and the backlight will be faint (or you can omit the backlight, simply shifting the connector by one row), and flash the correct software.
