SerLCD problems
« on: July 06, 2009, 08:38:18 PM »
So i am working on some stuff with the SerLCD, and When I use the printf() function, the string is printed on the screen, but you can only see it when you look at it on an angle. If you look at it strait on all there is is black squares...

Does anyone know what the problem is?

*extra info*

Problem solved... after staring at it for like an hour I finally read the screen printing and went o crap I am giving the thing unregulated power...   I had assumed that the whole back row of the axon had regulated, but i was wrong.....  LCD still works, THANKFULLY!!
