Nextion Display Connection failed


Nov 30, 2018
Trying to build a Nextion display dash and im having issues. I have the Nextion display hooked up to a USB to TTL module, RX to TX, TX to RX and it is getting power because the display is on and working. However, whenever i try to upload the file through the Nextion editor, it wont connect and gives the message "Connection Failed, Forced Interrupt". Iv looked all over the internet and it seems other people have had the same issue but no one has said how to fix it. Does anyone have any input that may help? Thanks
