 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Thanks for your kind offer!

After the last "hot episode" the lcd again works totally fine.

So I do not have a foto of the probleme state.

I followed  the following tutorial:

I did not use the pins to use the backlight.

Here is a picture of how I connect the lcd to arduino:

I switched arduino off, waited half an hour and .... now the display works again flawlessly! No missing lines ... everything is fine ...

I wish I would understand why ...

Sounds like the display goes into latchup mode, that explains your problems and the display getting hot spontaneously.
