I am hoping to use a 16x4 lcd display to show the battery voltage of a car battery as well as displaying the number of turns or rope on a which drum for my university project. However before i start going into the more complicated side i have decided to check that i can get the LCD display to work and check that it is compatable with the Arduino board.
The lcd display that i have got is - http://uk.farnell.com/midas/mc41605a6w-spr/lcd-4x16-stn-reflective-5mm/dp/2063247
i have wired it up as shown in the "Hello World!" example and have tried to upload this code to the board to check that everything is working correctly.
The code i have uploaded is -
LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);
the issues that i have got is that the LCD display is not showing anything at all, like it is still switched of, is it becasue this LCD module is not compatible with the Arduino board or becasue i have got the coding wrong?
