LCD help?

Hi, I have a 16 pin lcd screen. None of the pins are labeled. so I want to get my lcd to display text on my Arduino? But I am not sure how to? I have tried all of the Arduino tutorials and many others. What pins do we connect to the arduino and any code? please help :D this is for my schools robotics club.

Also. How do you make things. Like how could we figure that out on our own without having to post onto the forums? We want to be able to just figure it out super fast? advice, tips tricks? Thanks so much!

With a manufacturer’s name and model number? If not, it’s a paperweight.

Experience. Years and years of.

Try posting a clear photo of the LCD (front and back). Also look on the back and see if you can read anything interesting like chip numbers or board numbers.

Google "arduino "

Where is the sort of thing you want to make.
