Ok so I bought a 5110/3310 LCD off ebay with one of the level shifting chips, followed this set of instructions http://learn.adafruit.com/nokia-5110-3310-monochrome-lcd/overview to wire it up and stuff, downloaded arduino IDE software and got it up and running it seemed to upload the sketch but nothing happened, my display didnt do anything other than it was illuminated by the back light.
At one point I noticed a flicker with a few pixels on the display I think, but it only did that once.
Being a noob, I dont really know where to start with this one, whats the best way to test the display? what sort of issues could there be with uploading the code?
I dont know where to start!
