The board uses different pins than the Arduino example sketches, so to make the display work, use the following sequence of pins when starting the library:
Liquid Crystal lcd(8,9,4,5,6,7);
The buttons are connected to only one analogue input pin through resistors to give a different voltage for each button, thus saving on input and output pins. Reading the buttons is easy, and an example code is shown below.

  • Blue backlight with white words
  • uses the Arduino LCD 4 bit library
  • Left, Right, Up, Down, and Select buttons
  • Screen contrast adjustment
  • Arduino Reset button

Package Included:

  • 1 x  LCD 16×2 Character LCD Display For Arduino
