Octodash screen goes green / no issues when plugins disabled

I'm trying to figure this out, but it seems odd, when I plugins installed the screen on my Octodash goes green. It seems if more than 1 plugin is enabled, the screen goes green.

I'm running Rpi 4 Model B, with Hyperpixel 4 screen. Everything has been updated to latest version as well.

Any thoughts on this?

I thought of the missing systeminfo bundle.
Besides the Pi4B and the Hyperpixel 4 you use, we we know nothing else.

I can provide the rest, but this is the text file.

Sorry, but:

okay, lets try this....

I went trough the octoprint.log.
At the very start, the Octodash plugin is activated. While the rest (25 times) it's deactivated.
During the first start that plugin has problems to get the settings loaded due to a missing file.

You may reinstall the plugin.

but the issue, it doesn't matter which plugin, if there is more than 1 running, I get the green screen. I've tried loads of combinations, and it doesn't matter.

Here is the latest with with Obico and Octorelay only running.

What GPIO pin did you use for OctoRelay?

#2, but its currently disconnected.

Isn't GPIO pin 2 (SDA) not also used for I2C connection to the Hyperpixel screen?

Because the hyperpixel runs from GPIO pins you can't really use any of the other GPIO plugins along with it. Disable any GPIO plugins and I bet your issue is resolved.

interesting...I'll give that a shot. So there is no way to use the GPIO pins for relays then...?

As @jneilliii mentioned, it is not possible to control other hardware via the GPIO pins.
Also see this:

If you want to control the printer power via the relay, you may can swap to a smart plug.

Ir really am an idiot...I've been busting my brains over this. Thanks guys.

Not in the normal pi sense I don't think. You could use Tasmota based relays and my plugin (or psu control sub-plugin) and control those over wifi.
