Hi, my lcd is working but it seems that it is not 16x2 but rather 8x2... what do you think is the problem?

i use the example of LCD in arduino, all of them but it is just divided in half.. help plss


Can you make a very small test sketch and post it.
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.....

Please don't PM for technical advice. Firstly my advice is sometimes wrong, and second, in the forum you get a broader, more timely, range of responses.

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.
