I purchased the SparkFun Color LCD Breakout Board (LCD 11062) as seen on this page: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11062
I have then attached it to my arduino in four places as follows:
I have then installed the arduino color lcd library and copied your sample code.
(as instructed in this tutorial: https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/286
For power, I have attached
LCD GND -> Arduino GND,
LCD VBATT - > Arduino VCC,
LCD 3.3v -> Arduino VCC.
The Arduino I am using is a femtoduino, which has a single VCC socket. http://www.femtoduino.com/spex/femtoduino-usb
So far, I am able to get the backlight to light up, but I cannot get anything to actually display on the screen.
I have tried changing from Epson to Philips in the code but this does not solve anything.
I have tried powering only the LCD 3.3 and leaving out the VBATT, but I still see absolutely nothing.
Is there some advice you can give me as to what to try?
I would be grateful for any help.
