Right now it just seems that they are just sitting on there and I'm curious as to if that's why it's not displaying.
Electricity requires a continuous path along conductors. At these voltages, it will not pass over air gaps.
Unless the pins are actually inserted and pushed down into the connectors inside the breadboard it is almost certain that while some may touch, others will not. Unless all connections to the LCD are made, it will not work. :astonished:
We often see people here who just rest the pin connectors into the LCD board but do not solder them to the LCD tracks, and wonder why it does not work when they simply have not actually made connections to each and every pin.
In fact, since we almost always use "nybble" (4-bit data) mode on the LCD, pins 7 to 10 obviously do not need to be connected. I am of course referring to a 16-pin "1602" or "2004" display whcih I presume is what you mean as we obviously have no idea to what YouTube video you refer or what "Magic 8 Ball" this is. :roll_eyes:
