 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,
I bought a JHD 162A LCD unit. but simply cant interface it with arduino. tried every possible thing but cant get it to display anything. I saw many posts in this forum which led to nothing...  :-[
 I connected it exactly like this and ran the hello world code with edit as they gave. http://www.ladyada.net/learn/lcd/charlcd.html
checked and rechecked connections that is not the problem it seems. I tried liquidcrystal as well as LCD4Bit libraries but both arent working.
backlights
Someone Plz tell me how to do it... becoz i have bought some 20 lcds of the same type. tried different leds but got nothing...
Can someone help.... :'(

looks like it is a standard 16x2 LCD that should be compatible with the instructions you cited:

what do you see when you follow the tutorial? a photo of the wiring/ screen might be helpful.

http://www.avrbeginners.net/ Click on interfacing examples then read all the subtree. The introduction is worth reading the rest is not specific to the Arduino but it is to atmel.

If it was designed by man it can be repaired by man.

Not without your code, a photo of your connections, and a description or photo of what is or is not displayed.

When you adjust the contrast potentiometer you don't see squares on the display? Here's an example of that:

These are mutually exclusive.

If you really want some help then you are going to have to give us something to work with as I mentioned in reply #3.

We need a copy (cut and paste) of the code that you used, not a reference to the code that you think you used.  We also need a photo of the connections that you actually made, not a reference to the connections that you think you made.
