Thanks for the OpelTID library
Unfortunately I’ve tried to use it, but it's not working.

I'm using the following code, and the only thing I see is sometimes a CD symbol  : http://pastebin.com/2jHE4zxh
I can change the symbol by changing the the value of  i
But I'm not seeing any text.

I'm using a UNO R3 and i've tried 2 TID.
What I’m doing wrong ?

Roel


A cd symbol?

Please post pics of you setup? my TID has no cd symbol.

@bobale It's a Opel Astra F 1.4 build in 1994.

taking for granted that you have already checked your connections throughly, first thing you should try is changing the string from "hello" to "HELLO" since the display can't display lowercase characters  smiley-lol. Another curios thing about this display is that every minute the screen is cleared of all symbols and characters (this is done by the display itself, not by my library, and i don't know if it's possible to avoid this), so since your sketch includes a 2s delay, the only symbol shown goes away for up to 2 seconds from time to time. BTW, all other symbols are working too? if you assign i=1 you see the dolby c and so on?

hope this was helpful

the main ic is a ST6 microcontroller, from what i gathered here it's a ST6240B that is factory-programmed, so the number on the chip (ST624306/A2) shows nothing when searching for datasheet.
