Test command with serial external program

Hi all!

I bought the NX3224T028 version and I like it a lot. Congratulations on the design of the device. (It would be good a version of Editor for Linux)

Currently I'm trying to communicate with the screen in python. I can receive boton event with the command serial read, but I can't write or the screen does not respond.

So my question would be to know if I could try with a serial port program like "moserial" to try if I don't have a problem with my LCD?

I try to send this command for example: sendmeÿÿÿ

Or some other test the verify the communication. (without arduino)

My connection:

USB/TTL(serial - CP210x UART Bridge) <-> LCD Nextion

5V <-> 5V

Rx <-> Rx

Tx <-> Tx


Python program to test write:

import serial

ser = serial.Serial ('/dev/ttyUSB0') 

ser.baudrate = 9600


print s

Thank you very much

it can't work with your wireing ...

    - Rx <-> Rx  ???

    - Tx <-> Tx   ???

something Send out must be Received ...

Shouldn't it be ser.write('t2.txt="Hello"\xFF\xFF\xFF') ?

with the posted wire-setup it makes no difference, you can send whatever you like, it just won't work ... :-)

Hi all,
Thank you for your help.
Thierry Frenkel: sorry it's my mistake in the copy and I send ser.write('t2.txt="Hello"\xFF\xFF\xFF') and nothing.
Gerry Kropf: yes you are write, it's strange wire but if I put Tx <-> Rx I can't receive and send.
Now, with this strange configuration I can read and I have the following return for some buttons.
[101, 3, 6, 1, 255, 255, 255]
[101, 3, 5, 1, 255, 255, 255]
[101, 3, 7, 1, 255, 255, 255]
[101, 3, 8, 1, 255, 255, 255]

That is why my first doubt, if I can test with some serial program
Now, according the  Thierry Frenkel message's,I assume the python code it's correct.
Remark this USB/TTL worked me correctly with other projects with Rx <-> Tx.

Thank you again



In that case I'd check my wiring and USB to TTL adapter first by trying to do manual serial communication between the IDE and the display

TX -> RX

RX -> TX

If for any reason the silk is wrong on device, I would toss the incorrect one.

- but could also be some sort of code configuration error

In any case, to frig with a one off where silk maybe wrong is one thing

- if this is a multiple unit scenario ... yeah, I don't know, I'd figure which is wrong and toss it.
