I recently purchased a new K16A-B from WiredWatts.  It came with the OLED screen.  The BBB is working and the controller's led's are powered.  The OLED screen is not coming on.  I swapped out the screen with another one I have that works on my K4-PB, no luck.  Any troubleshooting ideas?

If you can get into FPP (network scan or something to find the IP),  go to the about pages and see if it detects the K16A.   A common issue is that the eeprom didn't get properly programmed so FPP didn't know there is an OLED.   If that's the case, it's a simple flash of the eeprom from the about pages.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I got to the about page.  I think it recognizes the controller, in the "About Cape/Hat", it shows K16A-B, version number, serial number, etc.  

You lost me after that.  I do not know what eeprom is, where to find it or how to flash eeprom on the about page.
