You can use Frtizing open source programme for preparing schematics/circuit design.  smiley-grin

Utilize a Arduino lilypad for this purpose and do not use the 9v batteries in place of that use a lithum power batteries ,the ones which are used in Mobile phones they are really sleek and slim so that sewing a small pocket for holding the batteries would not be a big think and will not look bad too and they come in various variations in terms of voltages like 3.3v or 4.5v or similar values that is simply pretty much for your implication.

About LED's i would suggest using SMD led's , They are the best for your implication because they will be nearly invisible and when they will light up will have a dramatic effect, while looking out for the battery choices look out for 4.5v' above 1000mAh or atleast this much.

Pictures we need to see pictures of this Hack please, i have recently Hacked into the Motorola F3 and came to know it is some Alphnumeric Strip LCD.

Have the LCD upside down and you will see black colour metal clamps turn in to side ways which blocks the black frame holding the lcd glass, while pressurising the metal frame from front carefully not excessive pressure should be laid but just that which keeps on metal frame stay fully inserted into pcb then gently move those clamps at the LCD back side ways to lock the position.

also in very minor cases could be a problem of contrast but as i see the middle pixels not at all showing stuff it seems something is wrong with the Driver and mostly the above listed remedy must save you or else check connectivity with arduino and your board ensure the wires in the arduino are completely fit

1176  Using Arduino / Displays / Re: Warning to users of some vendors LCD keypad shields. on: March 15, 2012, 03:25:11 am
I was planning to use this sort of LCD shield for my next char 16x2 or GLCD project however not with a keypad one but this post surely warns me to look out for this abnormality.

Thank you!

The FTDi chip on the Duemilanove and others is also a 232 UART USB interfacing chip , the PL 2303 works in the same way.

your post the other day about my age? Like most things I post here, I made it up

I initially thought you were a young kid.  smiley-zipper

I'm ok with that already ,also im a person who is neutral on offensiveness when studying and its a study place for me, I just wrote that statement to emphasize smiley-eek that there is someone to handle irregularities smiley-sad-blue  .

Yes that is true! Techone.

Therefore 89% with ten or fewer posts. About the same as here.

If 50% of people become with 1000 or somewhere near it then this Forum would become a full fledge University, Given AWOL's scrutinizing and eliminating POST COUNT BUMPING

It has a lot of stuff for a fraction of more cost paid over a Rev3 Uno and if i remember last i read about it not only flash ,eeprom,pins ,SD card interface is there it also runs on high clock levels
1182  Development / Other Hardware Development / Re: What does JP2 do on the Arduino Uno Rev3? on: March 14, 2012, 12:16:21 am
May be these ATmega16U2 have some pin;s open and freely usable but hardly they would be used as not many would be messing with the Bootloading code, these guys are messing with the Simplicity of the Board.

i remember one post back where Nick posted about Rev3 pin-outs saying that these headers have made it further hard to use that mounting hole as this was the only hole because the other one parallel to it is already filled with Caps and power jack making it very hard to use in mounting.

Moreover these new changes must be clarified by the Arduino team this is not the way , if the forum is filled with pretty much experienced guys this doesn't means that they gonna shed the responsibility on forum;s nice guys.

Hi Tyler, you can also get USB to Serial conversion of a Nokia cable(DKU-5or something like this one common characteristic is Big frame at USB side) so may be you do not even need to buy a FTDi if one is lying around with no use they basically have a prolific pl-2303 chip.

Might be a western thing.

Acceptable! but i keep him addressed with some fun stuff from Western states  smiley-wink but these days it has become hard to entertain him because he kinda doesn't have fun!(may be he's turned sufficiently old for it  smiley-grin smiley-mr-green)

I don't why I keep it. Hmm... recycle the parts, maybe.

May be recycle , Are you talking about malfunctioned chip here? if yes how come?
