  • I just purchased this, and have a working PIC18F2550 proto board. But when I send data all I see are strange vertical bar patterns (similar to a pair of ‘|’ very close together) instead of characters. One of these patterns (looks like a custom character) appears each time I send a char to the display. My PicBasic code is very simple. I’m running a 4 Mhz osc.

    Pause 3000  
    PORTB.0 = 1
    SEROUT PORTB.1,6,["a"] 'the 6 sets 9600 baud 
    Pause 1000
    PORTB.0 = 0
    SEROUT PORTB.1,6,["m"]

No public wish lists :(
