Ok, i guess ill start off by telling you all what i have and showing the datasheet.
I have an ATMega1280 with a 128x64 TM12864L-2 LCD display. I have it wired as directed using Pinout B:
I see the animation from the sketch i uploaded, but i have no back light. I've checked the connections on my breadboard and tried 2 different potentiometers. I'm running out of ideas and hope I just missed something stupid.
Thanks in advance.
