I'm currently trying to use this 1.3" i2c oled screen with the Adafruit oled i2c library, but I'm currently getting this issue:

enter image description here I have made sure to run the setup.py and all of the code is the same.

The screen is a GME12864-80

Is there any way that I can fix this?

    It looks like you have the wrong screen size (pixels width x height) setting.

  • I googled but could not find the spec. Can you give me a link?

  • @tlfong01 don't worry about it anymore, I've decided to go with a much more well known screen, as I too couldn't find a proper spec for it

  • @danwillm, OK. I recommend this one: raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/105364/…

Possibly the driver you are using is not the correct one for the screen, I had the same problem and changing the driver from SSD1306 to SH1106, and it worked correctly. https://luma-oled.readthedocs.io/en/latest/troubleshooting.html regards,
