The LCD module is very fragile and many units have been delivered with the LCD damaged during shipping. Check this page for photos and suggestions. The newest D7 units are now shipping with an acrylic backing plate on the LCD to help protect it.
- If the LCD shows a white circle when the UV is turned on (issue gcode M106 or use CW / NanoDLP to turn on the UV Lamp) then it could have been damaged by pressure on that spot.
- If the LCD is showing half an image longways then the LCD cables could be loose. Carefully check them with instructions from this page.
- Check that the orientation of the secondary screen on the PC (if using Creation Workshop) is set to Landscape.
The initial bed / LCD size was set incorrectly in CW for the D7.
CW appears to calculate the x and y microns using the dimensions entered and the configured x / y resolution so having the bed (LCD size) size set wrong will throw off the calculations. Nanodlp you enter then directly. The older version of nanodlp would use one value for both x and y. After upgrading and going into setup it will want you to enter a value for Y, I just coped the X over to Y. Assuming the CW settings are exact, this works out to 46.875 microns for X and 47.222 for Y. Formula is LCD mm * 1000 / LCD Resolution, i.e.: 68mm*1000/1440 = 47.222
In CW adjust the Build Size to 120 x 68 and make sure the resolution is 2560×1440. Nanodlp still requires you to enter in the values for X and Y microns directly (use the formula above).
