I've noticed a person above this thread is having the same problem I am. I've tried putting resistor between the voltage supply (5v) but it's not helping.

I've actually got the LCD working about a week ago: I've just hooked the LCD driver in its appropriate pins (ground, 5v, and Rx pin). But now, whenever I hook the ground and voltage source, the Arduino (Uno) turns off.

This is the driver I am using:

Any ideas?

Never mind guys.
It seemed the breadboard I was using was the cause of it.

Carry on.
