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.....
Leonardo Pro Micro ATmega32U4 Arduino IDE 1.0.3 Bootloader replace Mini
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
