Last night i finally managed to finish the mold for the indexer base. I was a bit worried that it would take many hours to vulcanize due to the weather being cold, but it all went well in the end!
Here's how it looks:







That's the left-hand part. Hopefully soon i'll be molding the right-hand one too.

Thank you all my friends!
I have been scratching my head, but still can't figure what's wrong with DED.
I know i made this question before, but i'm still troubled! It just occured
to me that i forgot something. See my post here: http://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=8170.msg160469#msg160469
There's actually 7 lines to connect to the DUE, not 6.   
Anyway, my understanding concerning the ER-OLED M028-1 is this:

   ARDUINO DUE PIN                          OLED PIN
        GND               -----------------    1 (VSS)
         9                   -----------------   14 (/DC)
         8                   -----------------   16 (/CS)
      SPI SCK           -----------------    4 (SCLK)
      SPI VCC           -----------------   15 (/RESET)
      SPI GND           -----------------    5 (SDIN)
      SPI VCC           -----------------    2 (5V) < tied with pin 15?

Pins 7,8,9,10,11,12,13 of the OLED are shorted together, and tied to pin 1
which goes to GND.
If i'm correct, the display receives power on pins 2 and 15 from SPI VCC (5v)
Is it possible the display requires external power from say, a psu?
Also had a heck of a time trying to flash the DUE.
I had errors on the IDE about some g++.exe being corrupt, reinstalled all
libraries, boards, etc. and finally managed to upload the code.
Nevertheless, nothing happens. I'm on BMS 4.33U1 and run Deduino 0.0.1.1 on
Windows 8.1 64x. It reports being connected. I then run BMS, but never had
anything displayed on the OLED. I'd appreciate anyone having a similar
configuration (DUE <-> ER-OLEDM028-1) showing a pic of cabling just to make
sure, and maybe a copy of the (edited) config.h to make sure i haven't done
any editing mistakes! If i can verify that all the above is ok, my last
conclusion will be a burnt OLED (never seen it light up)..

Thanks in advance!

Hi salaxi,

ARDUINO DUE PIN                          OLED PIN
        GND               -----------------    1 (VSS)
         9                   -----------------   14 (/DC)
         8                   -----------------   16 (/CS)
      SPI SCK           -----------------    4 (SCLK)
      SPI VCC           -----------------   15 (/RESET)
      SPI GND           -----------------    5 (SDIN)
      SPI VCC           -----------------    2 (5V) < tied with pin 15?

This is not quite correct the OLED pin 15 should not be tied to pin 2 5v.

Pin 15 ----- SPI RESET

Also once connected to the arduino, try resetting the the arduino with the red reset button on the arduino. It should run even if it is not connected to BMS

Hope this helps, David

@dkm : Thanks for your reply! I thought so too, but i was corrected by Uri on that: http://www.viperpits.org/smf/index.php?topic=8170.msg160482#msg160482
"5. one mistake, Display reset pin should not be tied to the arduino Reset. it should be tied high (to VCC). "
Meanwhile, if you take a close look at the schematics, you'll notice pins 2 and 15 are actually tied-up (check the red arrows) :

Ah that's probably why I have to reset the arduino to get it to start. But I would 100% check your wiring, I remember when I had issues a while back it was due to incorrect wiring I swapped pin 9 & 8 around. I now have permanently wire to prevent such issues.

Just go back to the basics, connect only the DED screen to the arduino & do one for one wiring. You don't require a separate power supply for the screen, the gnd & 5v is supplied from the arduino. It doesn't even require being connected to a computer to run.

I doubt your screen would be faulty, I was certain I had fried mine also, but is working fine. Just make sure you haven't damaged any PCB tracks with a wayward soldering iron (I have done this with my Fuel Flow screen).

See my pics no computer in sight, just running from a phone power supply.

@ dkm : Success! Yup, it appears that pin 2 on the OLED goes straight to 5v on the Due, and pin 15 on Reset.. Thanks for your help dude!  :yihaw:

Ain't technology marvelous!  (And it's good to have friends on VP that can help.)

Keep up the good work.

Yes, and yes! The DED was something that troubled me a lot, and next up will be the FFI part of the project (i think). Thanks for your kind words!

Great news :thumbsup:. It always feels good to get something working that has been troubling for a while. Go for FFI it is way easier, & fewer connections.

That looks great! With that success I doubt the FFI will be any trouble at all.

Thanks for your kind words and help fellas! I sure hope things go well. I was a little unfortunate these past few days with my pc requiring a reformat, and have not yet re-installed BMS. Anyone know if i'm supposed to see anything on screen for the FFI display before running BMS, like the DED message?

Unfortunately I do not have the IDE of Arduino on this PC, otherwise I would have looked at the code and I would have told you if and what should have appeared on the display.
If you have a bit of familiarity with the IDE, it is not difficult to look up the code.
