Im trying to get my pc to send information to my lcd screen using smarties program i have spent hours trying and fail as i am super new to arduino and spend all day trying so was wondering if anyone could help me out with some code ?
also due to my inexperience i seem to have purchased a fake arduino..... [u]Leonardo Pro Micro ATmega32U4 Arduino IDE 1.0.3 Bootloader replace Mini[/u] here is a picture of it sorry about quality was taken with mobile
i have since purchased a real arduino uno and as im waiting for delivery i thought i could mess round with this fake one in the meantime.
i have used this schismatic to connect lcd to fake arduino however i have chosen my own pins on the fake arduino * LCD RS pin to digital pin 9 * LCD Enable pin to digital pin 8 * LCD D4 pin to digital pin 7 * LCD D5 pin to digital pin 6 * LCD D6 pin to digital pin 5 * LCD D7 pin to digital pin 4 * LCD R/W pin to ground
iv loaded examples like hello world and it all works perfectly i just cant get it to talk to my smarties.
my lcd is HD44780 Backlit 2004 LCD 20x4 i also have a 602 HD44780 LCD 16x2
i assume the code would be tailored for the 20x4 lcd and therefore would not work on the 16x2 lcd as well ?
if anyone could help me i would really appreciate it. thanks :)
