i got a 12v power adapter and hooked it to a power socket. after i saw the smoke coming out

I'm going to order a new LCDsss lol, and another back up board. Which board is the best ? i

if you know a way to actually check if the LCD is bad ..



I guess I should have said 9v wall wart but Arduinos are officially good for 12v and I reckon there were other things going on, possibly still to do with the pins. Despite this there is no good reason to get anything other than a standard cheapo Uno or Mega off eBay. I guess the best way to test an LCD is by substitution. I would suggest getting one with an I2C adapter included. It rather lessens the chances of strife like this.....

Unless you want to support the people who are designing the stuff in the first place.
