Reversed backlight connections
« on: September 16, 2016, 04:22:53 AM »
Hello All,
               My first post so go easy on me please  :)   I have a 2x16 LCD character display from a Lotus Elise instrument cluster.
I think it is faulty because it sometimes displays random characters. The problem I have is the polarity of the backlight pins is
reversed compared to all of the displays I have seen.   Do any of Newhaven's units have solder bridges so I can reverse the
backlight polarity?

Many of our displays have solder bridges or jumpers that can be moved to reverse the polarity of the backlight or even provide the power for the backlight via the VDD and VSS pins.

Do you have a certain display you are looking at to match the display from the Elise cluster?
Beautiful car btw.  8)
