Hello,

Before I posted I did my best searching trying to find answers.

I found this LCD on ebay and decided to give it a go and learn how to work with LCD's on Arduino Uno but I can't find any information on how to connect it to my board and for the life of me I'm not sure what library to use. as far as I know is the LCD is type  JN12864J?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/12864-Graphic-LCD-Display-Module-128x64-Dots-Blue-Color-Backlight-/280954538301?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item416a32093d
Could someone lend a hand?

Thank you,
Chris

It's a Graphical LCD (or GLCD) so you want to start here ==> http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/GLCDks0108 .  

You will have to verify that the controller on your board is compatible with the library.

buying things with datasheet is a complete waste of money.

Totally agree with a doubt!  ;) (the seller didn't provide a data sheet BTW)

The pins are labled very nicely. One of the pins seems to be labled with "PSB", so it is probably not a KS0108 display but instead a ST7920 based display. You can use http://code.google.com/p/u8glib/, also linked on the Arduino playground.

Google for "st7920 pdf" to find the datasheet.
