What is your question in regards to?

  PC cannot communicate with the terminal

Case 1: The baud rate of the computer software does not match the one of the terminal.
Solution: The factory default baud rate of the terminal is 115200, the baud rate of the computer should also be set to 115200, or, the communication fails. If a customer changes the baud rate of the terminal and does not know the figure he/she changes to, he/she could search it by using the 'serial port adjust assistant". Here below is the specific operating method.
1. Tick the 'HEX send' option;
2. Input handshake order AA 00 CC 33 C3 3C to the 'character input frame';
3. Set the timed sending to 100ms/ per time, tick the 'timed Now the software should be sending the order through the serial port continually.
4. Choose the baud rate; use the mouse to choose a random baud rate and roll the pulley. If the communication is successful, there should be a return value on the main window, then the baud rate on the window would be the present baud rate of the terminal.

Case 2: The serial port of the PC is being occupied.
Solution: Shutting down all the other programs and soft wares running on the PC which are occupying the serial port.

Case 3: The cable between the terminal and the serial port of the PC is disconnected.
Solution: Check if the cable is well connected, especially on the connecting point between the flat wire and the serial port DB9. If it's disconnected, you need to reconnect them by jointing or by changing to another cable.

Case 4: Short circuit of the jumper wire which is used for setting the baud rate.
Solution: After the short circuit operation, the baud rate should be 921600, disconnect the short circuit and the baud rate should be the one set by the customer, which is the factory default value 115200bps.

Abnormal display of the terminal

Case 1: the configuration parameter error of the terminal's display caused by the customer's incorrect operation.
Solution: This problem will only occur when using the program version under V5.3. Since for program V5.3 and programs above it, the customer cannot change the configuration parameter of the display. When this happened, you have to refer to part of the TFT_ID parameter diagram in the 'working mode configuration' of the 'instruction set' and to find the corresponding TFT_ID, then to change it by using EO order of the 'system parameter setting' icon under the 'developing and demonstrative assistant' option.

Case 2: Poor contact between the linking module set and the white cable of the wire board.
Solution: check the cable and make sure it's well connected.

Case 3: Dazzling monitor occurs when issuing the picture.
Solution: Choose the right resolution (in the drop down list of control panel on the left side of TerminalAssistant.exe).

The touch screen is not accurate or unable to operate on

Case 1: Infrequent adjustment lead to the low accuracy.
Solution: To use the 'adjust the touch screen' function under the 'peripheral' option of the Terminalassistant software. After the adjustment, you could test the touch screen.

Case 2: The poor contact between the connecting line of the touch screen and the PCB board.
Solution: To check whether the connection between the connecting wire of the touch screen and the pin on the back is loosen; if it's loosen, adjust it and make it perfectly connected.

Case 3: The touch screen has not been set to the switch mode.
Solution: When finished the process of setting the touch screen interface, you need to use OxEO order or by clicking the 'system parameter setting' icon under the 'developing and demonstrative assistant' option of Dwin's terminal, and to set the touch screen to the corresponding switch mode. For further explanation please refer to 'instruction set' OxEO.

Fail to communicate by using USB

Case 1: There is no USB driver in the PC.
Solution: To set up a CP210X drive by downloading from internet or by obtaining from a CD.

Case 2: The chosen communicating port is incorrect.
Solution: After setting up the drive, the PC will automatically create a new port, please search for it under the 'device manager' folder which is under 'my computer' folder. You should be able to communicate through this port.

Case 3: The chosen baud rate is incorrect.
Solution: There is a bridle wire on the back of the terminal which is for setting the baud rate, you will need to short-circuit it and use the baud rate of 921600bps.

Control equipment (e.g. MCU) cannot communicate with the terminal

Case 1: The level of terminal and MCU do not match with each other.
Solution: the MCU level is TTL, so it needs to be converted to a level of 232; or the level of the terminal could be converted to TTL. On the back of the terminal where near the 8 Pin connecter, there are signs of ON/TTL and OFF/232. When short-circuit, it will be the level of TTL.

Case 2: The baud rate of the terminal and that of the MCU are not in accordance.
Solution: to set the baud rate of the terminal and that of the MCU the same figure, the factory default baud rate of the terminal is 115200bps.

Case 3: the pins of the terminal and that of the MCU are mismatched.
Solution: There are always mismatching between input and output, the output DOUT of the terminal should be connected to the input (normally RX) of the control equipment; the input DIN of the terminal should be connected to the output (normally TX) of the control equipment

The Terminalassistant software of Dwin terminal cannot be used

Case 1: There's an alert showed initialization failed when staring up the application.
Solution: When you download the program from our website, please make sure that you download and set up the Framework2.0 software as well (or other program which is compatible).

Case 2: There is no option buttons when opening the drop down list of resolution settings on the left side.
Solution: when you move an application, make sure you move the files of config at the same time; that is putting both files in the same folder. The reason is that all configuration files in the program are under the folder of config.

Why MCU and DWIN UART LCM terminal cannot communicate properly?

Case 1: Level of MCU and terminal do not go with each other (TTL or 232)
Solution: the MCU level is TTL, so it needs to be converted into a 232 level; or the terminal can be converted to TTL level, there will be ON / TTL, OFF/232 identity in the back of the terminal near 8Pin terminal place, it will turn to a TTL level after a short circuit.

Case 2: MCU and terminal baud rate is inconsistent
Solution: set the baud rate of the terminal and the MCU, factory default baud rate of the terminal is 115200bps. If you are not able to determine the terminal baud rate, please connect the terminal to the PC for a test, detailed process please refer to Question 2.

Case 3:MCU and UART LCM pin connection error
Solution: the correct connection method is the transmit pin TXD of MCU connecting with receive pin DIN of UART LCM, and receive pin RXD of MCU connecting with the UART LCM send pin DOUT; GND pin of MCU connecting with the GND pin of UART LCM.

Case 4: User's MCU use 25MHz crystal to generate 115200bps, communication with the terminal cannot be achieved
Users use inappropriate crystal for controllers, resulting in big baud rate error and communication failure.

Solution: It is recommended that users select the appropriate parameters according to their own MCU crystal in order to obtain accurate baud rate.

Case 5: Terminal communication cannot be achieved, 202 output pin has no signals, it is recommended to change the terminal.

Why "high-speed Download" of terminal assistant always fail?

Answer: "Top-speed Download" requires the support of both hardware and software. Because normal computer cannot achieve bout rate over 115200, So "Top-speed Download" cannot be achieved by directly connecting PC with terminal. "Top-speed Download" has two conditions, first, use DIWN top-speed downloading (including xr21v141x chip), such as Question 12. Second, some DWIN terminal itself contains a high-speed download function interface (on-board USB interface and xr21v141x chip). At the same time, you also need to have driver virtual serial port of xr21v141x_driver installed on the PC in order to achieve high-speed download. Note that the "Top-speed Download" only can be used for 6.25MBPS download, and need the support of xr21v141x_driver, 921,600 of CP2102 do not need to check the item.
