please try attached fw.
Please make sure that backlight control works.

@ajd4096
I made a fw with 128x128 pixel - does this work (better)?

Backlight controls work OK. Screen quality quite good, maybe abeyerr_black_3 better (especially at default screen after flash).

Power off option still doesn't work. Could you validate if this option work after hack in your devices?
Cause I'm stating to think that is a common bug....It's very annoying, cause when I disconnected it from PC, it drains battery to zero.

Both firmwares I tested with LCD4Linux compiled from sources and dpfsend

@superelchi,

The top-left is clipped by 2 pixels, and there is a white border on the bottom right.
I've uploaded a pic of the testscreen here: http://imgur.com/K5soHuL
(I am Commander Strax with a camera.)

Perhaps the hardware/firmware is layed out for 132x132, but the LCD only has 128x128?
That seems a rather odd production change, though.

That's new. I know of some dpfs that will not power ON after MENU|OFF. But the other way around...
What does MENU|REBOOT do? Same as MENU|OFF?

@ajd4096

Could you post the calibration image with the 132x132 firmware?

MENU|REBOOT - display Rebooting...or sth similar at screen and do reboot. (this works OK)
MENU|OFF - do Power off (screen is disabled for a while), but after 1-2s device power on and start booting again. (that's why power off function works with bug)
The same is when USB cable is connected to PC or disconnected.

Is it a way to fix it?

@superelchi,

I pulled the front case off, so you can see it's not just sloppy assembly.
It looks like it is 132x132 but the top + left 2 pixels aren't visible.
I have 3 units, all the same.

These images areusing the 132x132 firmware (the 1st one you supplied).

For me, that's a perfectly usable 130x130 display. :)

How about the original firmware - does power off work here?

@ajd4096

Next try: this is a 132x132 fw with display shifted 2 pixel to the left and down.
Better?

@superelchi

Almost perfect. That behaves as a 132x132 with the (physical) bottom & right sides clipping 2 pixels.
I patched dpf_ax_open() to force the size to 130x130, and it behaves correctly in all orientations.
Can you make one more small change to return 130x130 as the size?

Interesting.
So let's try a 130x130-pixel-shifted version. ;)

Very strange - 132x132 pixel fw, 130x130 pixel viewable area...
I will add this one as "zipp_dp605_2" with 130x130 pixel.

Dear superelchi,

great to find you active here. Thank you very much for dpf-ax and the toolchain!

I have a Coby DP151, two identical NoName displays and one Bresser. The Coby works. But no luck with the others. So I that's why ask for help here.

But the following model has a partial signature match: acme_7.

I flashed acme_7. The device is recognized as Hackfin device afterwards but the display shows nothing and the menu cannot be accessed.

Dump attached.


I would be glad to get some hints how to bring these displays to work with dpf-ax.

Thank you,

Hi gothbert,

sorry about the late answer. Vacation. :)

Please try attached fw.
Bresser has no detectable contrast routine. Please make sure contrast is okay. Else I have to dig a bit deeper...

And one last interesting fact: the dpf has no reset button (at least I could not find one).

Hello

Has anyone had any luck with the 7" photoframes that are available on the online auction sites?

I have one coming and if i can get the firmware offloaded using your script. i will post it here and hiopefully you can work your wizardry on it.

It will be a nice larger display to use and look at.

Cheers

EDIT :Sorry post in wrong section - this should be in the general and my request with firmware later.

Hi Superelchi,
I have Sweex mm004v5 dpf, but "fw_sweex_mv004v5.bin" doesn't work in it (black lcd, backlight on).

One of these firmwares MAY work for your dpf.

But the following model has a partial signature match: xg4241.
This firmware MAY work for your dpf.
Proposed firmware xg4241 gives partial success - white eyes on black background, but menu is not displayed (no text - only white bar).
Could you try to prepare HACK firmwares for my devices?
I will be very grateful :)
Both original firmwares attached in single zip.

Hi free8bee,

here we go:

fw_sweex_mm004v5_2 - should work as expected.

fw_wh_smith - not sure. Has a *VERY* strange lcd access. Please give it a try and report back.

@superelchi

Thx for quick reply (X-mas holidays :)).
Fw_sweex_mm004v5_2 works almost perfectly. One strange thing happens when I turn off dpf by Menu|Off, and then turn it on by Menu button or connecting USB cable. It looks like lcd contrast has been reset to high level (out of usable range), and almost whole display goes dark. Then if I enter Menu|Setup|Contrast display goes normal. Also normalizes after Menu|Reboot.

Fw_wh_smith has trouble with displaying Menu (like fw_xg4241). A picture of Main Menu attached.
Despite this Testscreen looks like he should. Data from lcd4linux also shows correctly.
Backlight and Contrast setting works great.

Now I can use both frames for lcd4linux (with little additional activity) and gladly will test next version of the firmware.

What happens if you do a hard reset (switch at the back) or when reconnecting to USB (without the battery)? Display okay?
By the way - removing the battery is strongly recommended if you use the dpf with lcd4linux.

This dpf has the same weird lcd access as xg4241. Never got a "working" response for that one. Looks like I have to have a closer look...

Re: dpf-ax: unsupported dpf - requests
December 26, 2014 03:41PM
@superelchi

You're right regarding the battery - should be disconnected. Without the battery using this frame is simpler. With the battery when you turn on the frame must be reset because the usb is not working properly, and Linux does not recognize the device.
Mm004v5 contrast is fine after a reboot from the menu, hard reset or power reset.

With WH_Smith is strange because Testscreen menu works great, lcd4linux also displays beautifully, only text in the internal menu is not visible - the background color is like the color of the text.

Hi Andrejt,

as identify.py said: "This in no known firmware!".

A look at your fw-dump shows "AX208 SDK V3.0" - seems to be AX208 based, not AX206. And dpf-ax only works with AX206 chips based on the Buildwin SDK for this chip.
Sorry.
