That should fix one problem.

About the author This post was writen by Johan van Tongerencreator of this website. JoeO on Feb 01, Maybe I am telling a foolishness, but I have seen in the code you are using the pins 11 and 12 as data and not for Enable and RS. I did not see it until I scrolled down to look at your answer, then I saw it. Adjust the potentiometer until the row of boxes is visible, but dim.

Do you have any idea where I could find the correct initializing sequence? The tutorial is simple for 1602s to datassheet and get started. If you see black squares you’ve already done much of the work. The problem is that the vendor didn’t give me a good enough datasheet. I am really new to arduino, but I got to run a LCD like this one. Contrast adjustment; through a variable resistor. It looks like your connections are OK, but I can’t be sure. Stick the LCD display in the breadboard, somewhere on the right in the lowest row of holes so you can connect the breadboard wires above and the display rests on the unused rows of the breadboard.


If it isn’t soldered properly, pushing the LCD into the board may push the pin up and not touch the contact. Ming 26 July Very Good Tutorial!

a 16X2 LCD is blank

Frank M 25 April Did not specify resistor value? Any potentiometer between 5K dztasheet 50K will datasheeh. Connect the power and the contrast next pins 1, 2, and 3.

I believe Arduino has a built-in Liquid Crystal reference and library that can be used to write to all kinds of pin LCD screens.

I want to do something cool and give back to the Tessel community I datasbeet wrong or is it?? Johan is a professional frontend developerpetrolhead and allround DIY-er. Next up is the pot meter.

The scroll bar got me too. A 16×2 LCD means it can display 16 characters per line and there are 2 such lines. In terms of pin connections, we will be connecting up power, ground and six GPIOs. Works like an absolute charm!

Lucky for us, this screen also accepts an “input high voltage” high digital signal of 2. I was trying other codes but could not get success. I tried several initializations from a few datasheets and they didn’t quite seem to work.

This high-density System-in-Package SiP integrates controller, datsaheet switches, and support components. The LCD has 16 pin holes You won’t be able to use their exact code because it’s in C but it will at least give you a starting point for understanding how to make the screen work from code once the hardware is connected properly.

Tessel is a 3. We use the potmeter to set the contrast of the display. Vasilis 03 December you made my day. According to the table shown here the display controller is STU or compatible. A command is an instruction given to LCD to do a predefined task like initializing it, clearing its screen, setting the cursor position, 160a display etc.

Michael Bean 14 December Excellent!!! Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

New on Dreamdealer Behind the scenes: Kevin 04 September Works like an absolute charm! Chaul on Feb 02, I found this if it helps at all: What is Web Browser. Unfortunately, we’ll have to convert the voltage of pins that may datasheeh data to the Tessel from the screen down to 3. On the other hand your soldering looks like it could use some improvement. In the next few steps we’ll connect the display further to the Arduino to let the arduino communicate with the LCD screen and put some characters on it.

The power busses on your proto boards are split in half as indicated by the broken red and blue lines.
