I bought a Uno and a Tinkerkit LCD two days ago. Several attempts to make to display work has failed. I am very new to this microprocessor electronics stuff and am needing some guidance from the forum community. If anyone else has used one of these Tinkerkit LCD's there is some drama necessary to make to unit work properly with the UNO. Two Drivers are needed to be loaded in the UNO library and I am unsure if I followed the web sites directions properly. I can get the LCD turn on and display some information such as 9600b 16x2 blah blah when it first comes on but that it. And zi believe everytime I use the LCD I need to add commands to the sketch to make to work. I have tried loading example sketches like Hello World and get blinking lights on the Tinkerkit but no display readout.
Folks I am two days old and I am drowning already and my feet are hardly wet!
Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated, Marc
