Thanks dude, your right the last thing i want to do is blow my board.  (im still very much in the honeymoon phase of my ardiouno love) so slow and steady it will be.

Im doing some more digging now, so i may soon have a few more questions coming your way.  (if thats ok?)

Im so impressed with the whole open hardware scene and the people like yourself who go out there way and help the lesser mortals such as I.

again many thanks, i feel like im just coming in from the cold and its looking like a nice place to explore n learn your time and advice is hugely appreciated.

Ask away with questions.
Sounds like the Ebay seller didn't provide much information.
If you are looking for a data sheet, usually the part numbers on the back of the
glcd module can be searched to locate at datasheet.

Your right about the lack of documentation, it came with absolutely zip,zero,nada,nowt.  so's all i got to go on is whats being served online in html / pdf / YouTube etc but to be honest the price for the board was great and the delivery was eeriely fast despite coming from hong kong *4 Days and one of those was because i was out and it needed a signature to collect/confirm delivery (my gfriend is ebay-a-holic)even she claims never to have seen the likes in regards to speedy delivery & that's from anywhere in Europe (excluding UK,which being home) -arg i digress on with the point (did i even have one?) ((Ah yes, yes i did()

so despite the lack of anything whatsoever in regards to pre-bundled literature/datasheets and the likes has been surpassed by the amazingly newbie friendly online communities (such as here and people willing to lend advice such as yourself  which are a godsend (i'd be waaaayyy screwed without people like yourself and sites such as here)

so today's the day i have put aside to get this lcd and my arduino to make up and play nice together, i will report back with my results if its of any interest to anyone out there.

perhaps i could even write up a tutorial on how exactly to achieve harmony with my Arduino ATMega128 and the TM1284L-2.

needs to be said again, thank you all (*esp you bill) for your efforts in this wonderful world of open source hardware.  Im already wondering what life without an new ongoing project might be like (*shudder***)


anytime your in the uk/london area please let me buy you a beer or breadboard or something)

thanks

I was unable to find a datasheet for a TM1284L-2 lcd. Are there any other numbers on the back of the lcd?
Could you perhaps take a photo of the back of the board and post it here?
Use the macro option to keep the picture in focus so the print on the board will be nice and clear.

Also, you might want to ask the ebay seller if he could point you to the datasheet for
the lcd.

Isn't it more likely to be a TM12864L-2 ?
