How to get 2.4" TFT touch screen shield working

If you have bought 2.4 inch 176x220 TFT LCD Display Touch Screen Shield Module for Arduino, you will find the drivers don't work straight away.

The libraries are as follows.
https://github.com/prenticedavid/MCUFRIEND_kbv

Open MCUFRIEND_kbv.cpp and uncomment following line

Code: Select all

//#define SUPPORT_9342              //costs +114 bytes
Just remove starting //. This enabled the ILI9342 controller which is present in this TFT screen.

Library needed for touch pad to work. Download and move to the folder that includes your Arduino libraries. Rename the folder that is in ZIP file to "TouchScreen".
