My LCD powers but doesn't dislay anything

#include <LiquidCrystal.h>
int Contrast=20 ;
LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);

void setup()
{

analogWrite(9,Contrast);

lcd.begin(16, 2);
lcd.print(“happy”);
}
void loop()
{
lcd.setCursor(0, 1);

}

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.

Please read the first post in any forum entitled how to use this forum.
http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,148850.0.html then look down to item #7 about how to post your code.
It will be formatted in a scrolling window that makes it easier to read.

Can you please post a copy of your circuit, in CAD or a picture of a hand drawn circuit in jpg, png?

Thanks.. Tom... :slight_smile:

Can you see anything at all on the screen, blocks perhaps ?
I there a pot on the back of the LCD and if so have you tried adjusting it ?

Is the backlight turned on ?

Personally I would position the cursor before printing
