Thank you for the other set of eyes! The display is now working.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the response. I loaded your code onto my arduino mega, but no luck. Just get a blank screen. Seems something must be wired wrong. I was using uno before with serial interface. I wired to mega with parallel, as that looks like what your code is set up for. I read online that PORTA 0-7 on the mega is digital pin 22-29. I added the following code in the setup function the to set 8080/parallel, and tied them to lcd pin 29/30.

pinMode(4, INPUT);           // c86
digitalWrite(4, LOW);       //
pinMode(5, INPUT);           // ps
digitalWrite(5, HIGH);       //

I posted a couple pictures, maybe you can spot something from them.

Any help is appreciated. Would you happen to have sample code that uses serial (spi)?

I purchased this COG LCD ( and the FFC30 adapter board ( with the hope that I can get it connected to a breadboard and arduino. This is my first time working with a COG LCD and I am not sure what capacitors I should use. Per the data sheet (, it states 1uF and 1uF-2.2uF caps are required. I did a search on digikey, jameco, radioshack and other sites and find hundreds of options matching this criteria. I ended up ordering these:

With everything hooked up, the display is not working right. It will flash 'hello world' and quickly dissolve away. I suspect the capacitors, as this is the piece I know the least about.

Could you verify these are ok to use or suggest what I should be using with this display?
