Solder Ground to OLED

Secure the OLED to a panavise, PCB vise or third helping hands. Solder the remaining ground wire to the ground pin on the OLED breakout.

Connect STEMMA Cables to OLED

Plug in the STEMMA QT cable from the Raspberry Pi Pico to the left port on the side of the OLED.

Plug in the STEMMA QT / Qwiic JST SH 4-Pin Cable to the right port on the other side of the OLED.

Hardware for OLED

Use the following hardware to secure the OLED to the top cover.

  • 4x M2.5 x 12mm screws
  • 4x M2.5 hex nuts

Install OLED to Top Cover

Place the OLED face down into the top cover. Line up the mounting tabs with the mounting holes in the top cover.

Insert the screws through the holes in the top cover and push them through the mounting holes on the OLED.

Secure OLED

While holding screw in place, insert and fasten an M2.5 hex nut onto the thread of the screw. Only finger tightly the hex nuts to secure the screen. Proceed to install the remaining screws. 

The OLED screen is very fragile so be gentle when tightening screws!
