Title: NHD-0116AZ-FL-YBW enable backlight
Post by: jonbhanson on August 22, 2014, 03:41:05 PM
I have a NHD-0116AZ-FL-YBW with a backlight that does not come on.  As I ohm out the back of this display, it looks like the power is going to jumpers and resistors that I need to populate in order to enable the backlight.  However, I can't find a description of these jumpers and resistors anywhere in the product documentation.  Can you please instruct me? Thanks!

Have you purchased this display recently?  The display should already come with the backlight connected, and correct pads populated.
I'm assuming this is an older display of ours, in which case to use this backlight in the same way you would need to solder a 6.8Ω resistor on solder pad R8.
