I think the lcd is broken....


Wasn't there a post this last week or so, about a 16 character line which needed to be treated as 2 x 8 character sections? I did a quick seach and can't find it. Or I imagined it.....
My hovercraft is full of eels.

No PMs for help please.
DO NOT power servos from Arduino 5V: give them their own power and connect the grounds.

i think the problem on that one is that it is only showing the 8 left chars while mine is showing the 2message on both half

The example in the Arduino IDE is okay. So your lcd is broken. You should get a new one.
