This screen is a true pain in my ass. I’ve spent hours debugging it, only to realize that when using arduino hardware Serial, the screen gets sent random characters when programming the arduino. This causes the screen to get into a wacky state, requiring not only a full power reset of the device (unplugging usb), but also requires shorting power and ground to the screen so that any caps get discharged.
Sparkfun needs to update the firmware for the serial driver they have built, because this is really absurd.
Yea yea, i know what the response will be, SW serial. lame.
other than that, a $30 Serial LCD? oh that’s cool!
No public wish lists :(
