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.....

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