  • Hello,

    I just received my LCD Button Shield and I am having trouble getting it to display. When I plug it directly into the arduino the red LED lights up and on the display is a row of black boxes. When I try and upload any of the sketches form the LiquidCrystal library I get no change in the display. Also, when I hook it up to my 2nd arduino board it doesnt light up at all unless I jiggle it around a little and then it flickers. I feel like the header pins don’t make that well of contact? Can anyone give me some insight into what I am doing wrong here or if I have a defective LCD?


No public wish lists :(
