I have a 16x1 display driven by a hitachi HD44780 Chip. (for the record, I also have a 16x2 LCD display driven by the same chip). I tried the hello world (and other examples), after changing the
lcd.begin(16, 2); to
lcd.begin(16, 1);. The display just shows the first 8 characters of a line. There is nothing on the second half of the display. All the connections look solid and are exactly like the one here: http://arduino.cc/en/uploads/Tutorial/LCD_bb.png
Any idea what is going on?
I am using the Uno.
