gLCD EB-058

Postby Spanish_dude » Wed Oct 13, 2010 9:48 pm

Hi,

I'm having trouble with the gLCD.

I think my (gLCD) component connections aren't right so I'll just attach the flowcode file and log file.
I'm just trying to write some text on the gLCD...

Btw, does the backlight light up when you connect the 12V to the VPWR or do you first need to init the gLCD ?

My power supply is 12V5 approx. and the jumper of the EB-58 is set to B.
I'm using a 16F877A with a 4MHz osc.

Thanks for helping me ;)

Rgds,

Nicolas Lopez F.

Hello Nicolas.

First of all you may need to update the component C code file for the new gLCD. To do this save the following file into your Flowcode v4\Components directory and overwrite the existing file when prompted.

Once you have done this you will need to plug the E-block into PortC for a 16F877A.

The attached program should then work correctly.

Hi Ben,

I forgot to mention that I'm using flowcode v3 :roll: .
