I am trying to use a 2.8" TFT Touch screen and have been having fits. I am trying to interface the TFT with my Arduino UNO so I’m just pluging it directly into the Arduino with no other wiring. I have followed the tutorial for installing libraries including uncommenting the define statement in the TFT header file and all I get is a white screen. I tried older versions of the library as well as alternate libraries with no success. I also read through several forum discussions and have tried all of the recommended solutions but the screen still comes up white. Is there any real solution to this recurring issue?
Here is the serial output when I run the GraphicsTest sketch. It looks similar to what many others are seeing.

Using Adafruit 2.8" TFT Arduino Shield Pinout
Unknown LCD driver chip: 0
If using the Adafruit 2.8" TFT Arduino shield, the line:
should appear in the library header (Adafruit_TFT.h).
If using the breakout board, it should NOT be #defined!
Also if using the breakout, double-check that all wiring
matches the tutorial.tstattel
