I have a 4x40 LCD and i'm not sure if anyone has gotten one of these working before.

This is the datasheet: http://www.lasivian.com/files/pc4004a.pdf (Corrected link)

EDIT: On further digging that is not the correct datasheet, and I cannot find the proper one. It is a "Data vision P73-1" 4x40. It has 4 chips silkscreened with "SEC C929 KS0063B" and 2 with "SEC C923 KS0066U-00".

Any info is appreciated, thanks :)

That datasheet link doesn't seem to work.

I have driven an HD44780 compatible 40x4 display before. Just requires 2 enable lines - the liquidcrystal440 library can cope with it (possible the IDE bundled liquidcrystal library now - not sure).

^^^^ Right, the link doesn't work.

Try this thread, if the information on the datasheet is the same just try that configuration.

That was for a 20x4 which is similar (as it uses 2 HD44780 chips) but different as it will have a different pinout.

Anyway, can we get a working datasheet link? Then we can work tell you exactly how to hook it up.

Gotcha!

Actually I was working with 74HC595N's today, and here is this schematic for the 40x4 connecting a Shift Register... but I don't know if he has that one.

will work if it uses 2 hd44780 (or clone) chips

I totally forgot the liquidcrystal440! is a great library.
