Topic: How to configure Mega 2560 with lcd 128x64 ? (Read 4 times) previous topic - next topic



I am a beginner in the Arduino world. :.
I have an Arduino Mega 2560 with lcd sg12864j4 (128x64), but I have no idea how to wire and configure.
I tried different wiring and configurations but nothing work.

Can you explain me how to do?

Thank you  :D



  Have you looked at this example? Read through it and see if your unit is listed. It covers many GLCD types and many Arduino board types.



Yes, it is apparently a Pinout B Panel (Digitron SG12864J4 is listed)

Here is my wiring, following the table:

Is this correct?
Also, I am unable to configure the config files correctly.

This is the pin configuration of the lcd:


  From what I can see, your wiring looks like it could be correct but, that is a lot to look at in a picture.

Also, I am unable to configure the config files correctly.

Did you download and place the KS0108 Graphics LCD library in your library folder?

If your code is not working or compiling show it to us using the "#" button next to the quote button.



I have put the library ks0108 in the folder libraries.
When I try to run the example "GLCDexample.pde" it displays this message:

I refer to this page:
My lcd panel Digitron SG12864J4 is referenced as Pinout B panel

But it is written that the file "ks0108_mega.h" is compatible with the controller ATmega1280. What about my Mega 2560?
And the file Ks0108.h does not appear in the same manner:

  Code changes include conversion to an Arduino C++ library, rewriting the low level routines
  to read busy status flag and support a wider range of displays, adding more flexibility
  in port addressing and improvements in I/O speed. The interface has been made more Arduino friendly
  and some convenience functions added.

  Version:   1.0  - May  8 2008  - initial release
  Version:   1.0a - Sep  1 2008  - simplified command pin defines 
  Version:   1.0b - Sep 18 2008  - replaced <wiring.h> with boolean typedef for rel 0012 
  Version:   1.1  - Nov  7 2008  - restructured low level code to adapt to panel speed
                                 - moved chip and panel configuration into seperate header files   
     - added fixed width system font
  Version:   2   - May 26 2009   - second release
                                 - added support for Mega and Sanguino, improved panel speed tolerance, added bitmap support
