I received the ESP8266 WiFi Color Weather Station yesterday. After some planning and research, I was able to assemble it, sign up for the API, modify the settings and compile and download the code and all was working. I was quite please with how well documented everything was.
That was last night at about 9:30 when I put it down on my bench and retired for the night. I just got up to find that the Wemos device is apparently functional but the LCD panel has failed. I am thinking the Wemos device and touch screen are functioning because I see LED activity similar to how it was reacting last night, as well, I can seemingly download the code to the device with no errors. I have examined the Serial output for any error messages and I see none.
I left the unit unplugged for several hours while I worked on some other projects and I just came back to this and the LCD panel is working again. I feel this panel has a thermal related issue. I am monitoring it for further outage. In the time it took for me to write this paragraph, the screen went white again... I can let it cool off for a few minutes and try again and it works just long enough to show the main weather screen and then blanks again. Each time I let it cool and try again, the working interval gets shorter and shorter.
How do I get a replacement for this LCD unit?
Thanks in advance,
