Hello,

In this LCD manufacturer disabled pin 3 which is used in other versions of the basic modules for adjusting a contrast. Is there any way to adjust the contrast, as a text on the module is barely visible at current settings?

Thanks,
Leo

I found that the contrast can be significantly changed by modifying Supply voltage of the module (VDD). Actually, it was stated in the technical note as an (additional to VDD) parameter Vlcd - 4.4V.

HI,

This display does have a temperature compensation circuit built in.
This circuit is tied to both the VDD, so modifying the input voltage will affect the contrast. The VLCD is VDD-V0, the V0 is supplied through the temperature compensation circuit.
At 25C this should produce approx. 0.6 V.

When used normally what voltage do you see across the VDD and VSS pins?

Thank you for the comments. At room temperature and VDD +5V module demonstrates a very good contrast. So, this is 4.4V Vlcd.

Best,
Leo
