Any one had any luck with this? There was a pin-out given and a pong game. The library contains hundreds of errors which I couldn't med. I have a jn12864j which was a 5 of ebay.

Can I do any thing with this with an existing library such as the glc library? I followed the pin-out for that and all i can get on the screen is random squares being on and off. I dont really have any other use for this screen. :/

Which library? Which pong game? I did not see any links.

The controller itself is quite common and there are several libs around here. One of these libs is http://code.google.com/p/u8glib/ another one is from dc42. The Arduino libs usually do not give much information on how to connect the display with your Arduino, so you should fetch the controller datasheet and connect the display pins as described there.

I have a display that looks very similar to that one. You can find the connections for driving it in serial mode in the comments in https://github.com/dc42/arduino/blob/master/Libraries/Lcd7920/Lcd7920.ino. I expect the same connections will work with u8glib too.

Hi!

I've opened a same thread a week ago and updated now. Maybe we can help us eath other. Look here:

http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,133736.0.html

For now I can make almost all, connecting it in serial-mode and using so fewer connections on arduino. I miss the contrast for now.

Bye, Simon
