I want to use a character lcd with my arduino uno. i'm new to Lcds. I used an lcd found in this link and its datasheet is also available in this link: www.robot-r-us.com/display-graphics/lcd16x2-with-led-backlight-parallel-interface.html?keyword=character+lcd
I followed the wirings in the arduino lcd tutorial: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/LiquidCrystal
I've rechecked the wirings thrice already but only the backlights that turns on. I can't see the rectangles or characters.
i'm a little bit confuse because i usually see on the net with 16 pins but mine has only 14 but i just followed the labels on the pins. what could be the problem? pls help. I also notice that the back of the lcd seems to get a little hot.
