Someone can help me with the schematics to connect the lcd  :(


on page I leave there are examples of code, a schematic would help me a lot to understand.
I am a rookie with arduino, thanks for your time...

// Arduino pinout // Nokia 1100 LCD pinout (VDD & VDDI ==> 3.3V, VLED+ connected via 10 ohm resistor to 3.3V)
:~#define PIN_SCE 10 // 2 XCS Connected via resistor-voltage-divider 1.8K & 3.2K :~
#define PIN_SDIN 11 // 4 SDA
#define PIN_RESET 12 // 1 XRES
#define PIN_SCLK 13 // 5 SCLK

sorry for my english  :smiley-sweat:


See if this is helpful for you. Attached jpg.
Note that I use the following Arduino pinout: (But can be any of your own choice)
// Arduino pinout         // Nokia 1100 LCD pinout
#define PIN_SCE 9        // 2 XCS Connected via resistor-voltage-divider 1.8K & 3.2K
#define PIN_SDIN 10     // 4 SDA
#define PIN_RESET 8    // 1 XRES
#define PIN_SCLK 11    // 5 SCLK


many thanks, I'll be testing soon and will surely be counting on you here, thank you very much, I really needed  XD XD XD XD


i have one of these hooked up to my arduino and cant get the code to compile :( im sure its just something simple but

the first one on that link gives me
sketch_mar12a.cpp: In function 'void LcdCharacter(char)':
sketch_mar12a:116: error: invalid conversion from 'const byte*' to 'byte'
sketch_mar12a:116: error: initializing argument 2 of 'void LcdWrite(byte, byte)'

and the second one tells me
sketch_mar12a.cpp: In function 'void LcdPixel(byte, byte, int)':
sketch_mar12a:559: error: invalid conversion from 'byte*' to 'byte'
sketch_mar12a:578: error: incompatible types in assignment of 'byte' to 'byte [780]'

i will repost the code here for simplicity


the first is
line 117


the second one is
line 560

data = LcdCache

this one also has a button routine


I have adapted the GFX library from adafruit for the PCF8814 :D i have uploaded it to github
Here u can see an video in action :P

This thread helped me connect the lcd to my arduino uno!
Schematics from PokePjerrot worked perfectly! Thank you!
I used 3.0 and 1.6 kohm resistors instead of 3.3 and 1.8.
Now I will need to figure out how to get 3.3 volts on my DIY Arduino s3v3.


hi everyone!

pechurc posted a video with nokia 1100 lcd showing sensor values.
I'm trying to do the same thing - show values from different sensors on the lcd.
My lcd is already connected and working fine. It shows static message from the test sketch.
Code: [Select]

Now I would like to take a sensor value (integer data type) and show it on the lcd screen, but I can't figure out how to do that.
For example:

Code: [Select]
void loop(void){
sensorValue = analogRead(sensorPin);
LcdString(sensorValue); // ??? I know it is not correct, but how do I do this???

When I verify the sketch in Arduino IDE, it gives me an error message: "error: invalid conversion from 'int' to 'char*'"

Please could you explain me how I should convert "int" to "char"?
Maybe you could send me some example sketch?

Thanks beforehand!


today I uploaded my test sketch (with library from pechurc) to Arduino Uno and it worked!!! So the issue is not in the code, but in my self-made Arduino s3v3.
It is strange because other sketches worked absolutely fine on both Uno and s3v3.

Does anyone know why this code works on UNO but not on s3v3 (Severino)?

Code: [Select]
#include <Nokia2.h>

LCD Display = LCD();

const int sensorPin = A0;    // pin that the sensor is attached to

// variables:
int sensorValue = 0;         // the sensor value
int sensorMin = 1023;        // minimum sensor value
int sensorMax = 0;           // maximum sensor value

int time = 0;
int lastTime = 0;

void setup()

  // photocell calibration. This code is copied from http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/Calibration
// turn on LED to signal the start of the calibration period:
  pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
  digitalWrite(13, HIGH);

  // calibrate during the first five seconds
  while (millis() < 5000) {
    sensorValue = analogRead(sensorPin);

    // record the maximum sensor value
    if (sensorValue > sensorMax) {
      sensorMax = sensorValue;

    // record the minimum sensor value
    if (sensorValue < sensorMin) {
      sensorMin = sensorValue;

  // signal the end of the calibration period
  digitalWrite(13, LOW);
  //end of calibration

  Display.print ("Hello From Argentina! I'm Axel");


void loop()
  Display.print("Hello from Ukraine! I'm Olexiy");
  sensorValue = analogRead(sensorPin);




I got the LCD to work but the contrast is very low and you can only see light gray letters. How do u set contrast settings. its bit unclear in datasheet. thank you.


got it fixed. juz changed the
LcdWrite(LCD_C, 0x80); // Vop LSB *Here you can change contrast*
LcdWrite(LCD_C, 0x87); // Vop LSB *Here you can change contrast*


Now I will need to figure out how to get 3.3 volts

While specified for 3.3v, those devices work fine at 5v.

i maybe necro posting here....
i tryed to use pechurc lib but it wont work for the new version of arduino
annyone that can help me edit it so it works ?
i'm kinda new to  this all  so recoding this for me is a bit  to advanced
thanx in advance 
and sorry for the horrible spelling and gramae

Hello, I know that´s an old post, but when I use the function "void setTextSize(uint8_t s);" in  the pechurc´s library, characters appear on the screen overlapping each other. Is there a way to solve this issue somehow? I did a trial by adding some space in between letters or numbers and this solved the issue, but if I want to show some value coming from sensors, there is no way to separate them each other. What can I do in this void for avoiding this phaenomenon:

"void LCD::setTextSize(uint8_t s) {
  textsize = (s > 0) ? s : 1;
