only works in UART mode

I have a serial color oled 160x120.  I cannot get the screen to work in SPI or I2C mode.  I have soldered the jumper and tested both SPI and I2C and it still does not work.  I am using an arduio nano.  Tried pullups on SDA/SCL with I2C.  Removed solder bridge, went back to UART and works fine.   The config screen did respond showing the correct mode so I know I soldered correctly.  Not sure what else to check.  Could this screen be bad?

RE:only works in UART mode

 How did you connect the display module with your nano?

A4 is SDA, A5 is SCL on nano.

Also, you have to change the mode config in our sample code, see the comment line of the begin on code.

RE:only works in UART mode

yes a4 and a5 on the nano and yes I set up the correct code and defines to match the jumper mode.  Tried it all again (soldering jumpers/coding) on my uno with no luck as well.

 Then, there is no reason it doesn't work, please try the I2C sanner to see if you can find the I2C port:

Just tried i2c scanner...

 

Scanning...

Then connected a sainsmart 20x4 lcd and i2c scanner found it right away.

Resoldered a few pins and cleaned between a few pins per support and it's working now!  Thanks!
