I got the display to light up with recognizable data… it’s far from good looking (or even usable), but it’s recognizable.

 

The test program is a Qtopia demo application, “gradients”. I’ve run this program against a VNC buffer to make sure it runs and it looks perfect in VNC – except the application is much larger than 240x160, so it might not be a good test case. The physical display shows the upper left of what I expect to see, and the colors are more or less what I expect… the problem is the screen has a large amount of horizontal jump, like a clock isn’t at the right frequency… this leads to a fair amount of pixel bleed towards the right.

 

I set the registers according to the script at http://docwiki.gumstix.org/Display#Setting_up_the_Sony_ACX705AKM_on_gumstix.

Hi Mark,

How's this going?


I'm doing the same work with the same components too. Yesterday night i've wired the frontlight and it works (from 6V, 15mA). Hopefully today i'll do the rest and show some pictures on it.
Good luck!
