The display's backlight LED has resistors built in. You just need to supply 5V (positive to pin 15, negative to pin 16). No external resistors needed.
OK if you've used it with no resistor I have little to say. The only thing is that Vo is to control the contrast on the LCD, turn it down and see what happens. It will not affect the backlight.
