2023-02-18 (Sa) EWC_Box Screen light

I started a table to ensure the wires ran to the correct pins on the screen. The trouble arose from the screen's mislabeled pins, so their purpose was unclear. Some of the online tutorials had variants with different labels, and some were even correct! I skimmed Sparkfun's Hyperdisplay tutorial, which was marvelously helpful. I ran a couple of data wires from the SD card adapter to the screen and tried to upload an example sketch after I changed the default pins, but it would not compile. I hunted around for the compilation error, but the only thing to fix it was uninstalling the libraries manually in the file explorer, then reinstalling them through Arduino's IDE. Even after that, the screen was blank, but I did manage to get the backlight to operate.
