Show us "lsmod" output from the console terminal.

You want me to enter lsmod into the terminal do i need to put sudo before it or just lsmod command lists the status of modules inserted in the kernel so you want to check the lsd module is inserted into the kernel i will run it first thing in the morning how do i insert a photo into my reply couldn't find attach anywhere thank you for your help the flat 30 pin ribbon cable has a few slight marks on one end would that effect it if i manipulate the cable i get a white lcd screen would it be worth getting another 30 pin flat cable off ebay cheers

lsmod shows a list of the running modules.
It should show if both required modules are loaded correctly.
But if you set it up via the script I highly doubt that's going to be the issue.

You already said, the picture changes when you played around with the cable (displaying garbage).
So it could be that one of the connectors is damaged.. either the PCB or the LCD.
If you can check all the connectors again check if some pins are bent or something similar.

But yes please also post the output of lsmod, just to make sure.

Since the fbtft drivers loaded well, it seems to be a cable connection problem as meveric mentioned.

Where/when did you buy the OGST console kit?

I see. Let us know the test result once you get a new flat cable.
