I have a 16x2 LCD that is working perfectly on a bread board- just using the parallel interface(http://tronixstuff.wordpress.com/2011/01/08/tutorial-arduino-and-monochrome-lcds/), however when I have tried to transfer it to cables instead of the breadboard the text becomes garbled.
Have tried numerous things to fix this but am at a bit of a loss. I reset the arduino each time i reconnect it- same as on BB. The cables I am using have a connection when measured with a multimeter. Wondering if there is a limit on length or gauge, type of wire from the arduino to the LCD? or maybe something else that i am missing?
few details: wires are 30 cm long crimped terminals stranded hookup wire seems to only effect the digital pins and the enable. power and GND work fine.
