2.7.1 Issues

Having issues with BBB running 2.7.1.  I've not tried two BBB and two different capes on the BBBs with the same results.  The BBB strings tab doesn't seem to keep the setting I choose and save, always is reverting back to F8-B v1 vs what I put in as v3.  I've tried both with a F4-B and a F8-B v3 (OLED doesn't work either on this guy).

Because of this display testing of pixels won't work.

What am I don't wrong?


EDIT: Finally got the F4-B going but still can't get the F8-B going, always reverts back.


Send you an email....   easier to diagnose back/forth in email.

Yes Dan jumped right in to help me and we got my issue figured out for the F8-B v3 not working correctly.  I'm still having issues with no OLED working on it though.  Is there anything I ran look at log wise/config wise or run command line to try and get it going?  Just blank at the moment.


Do you have multiple oled screens you can try?  I bought 1 from amazon and it came dead on arrival.  I have found that the ones I have are made cheaply.

Yep I had a second one I tried with same results, which kind of makes me think its something underlying in the OS.


After working with Dan and a reimage and some strange things going on......things are up and going on a fresh reinstall.

Thanks for following back up and letting us know what fixed the issue. Many threads have no resolve even when the issue is fixed.
