Help with LCD

I have followed the hello world tutorial on the site and i still can’t get my LCD to work, the wiring is correct the LCD is connected to a variable resistor (10K) and I cant see any text while adjusting the resistor. The contrast of the screen changes but no words are appearing, Arduino is programming through the LED’s on the board, I have also put it through a blink test to make sure that it is programming properly.


To help you we need the following:

  1. A schematic how you wired Arduino and LCD
  2. A picture of your soldered connections (real picture with special focus on the soldered connections at the LCD display)
  3. The sketch you are using (pls read the forum rules and use the code tags) and a precise information, what LCD library you use
