 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

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.

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

If you believe something is right, you won't see what's wrong (David Straker).

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.
