Re: Nextion Basic 3.2 Display will not update #ubitx

I am not home and it has been a bit since I did it. You will need an ftdi usb to serial cable ($15 or so) Connect it to the computer USB port and the other end (4 pins) to the 5v, grd, rx, and tx pins on the display. Then select the port in the editor and the download or upload I forget what it is called. I may have left out a step but that’s basically it

Thanks Pat.  Sounds like a great idea but not sure I know how to do that.  Would I cobble together a USB to connect to the 5V, RX, TX, GND?  At this point the display is not connected to the uBitX.  I have 5V & GND connected to USB adapter and computer.

You could try downloading directly to the display. It’s slow but it would tell you if the display or card is bad.

I have seen this issues several times

1. Make sure your power source is good.
2. Try another microsd card.

Usually one of the above clears the problem

I have spent most of today searching through messages and wiki to no avail.  I am using the basic 3.2 Nextion display and am trying to upload the tft file I downloaded from  SD card is 8Gb and is formatted FAT32 and tft file copied to it.  When I insert the card into the Nextion display it shows Baud:   9600 and SD Card Update....... and stalls at that point.  I have waited as long as an hour.  Am  missing something or perhaps I procured a bad Nextion or SD card?
Thank you for any input.
