Character LCDs / Re: NHD-C0220BiZ-FSW-FBW-3V3M Problem -- Doesn't power on

Hello Paul. Thank you again.

I didn't expect to see "CHARACTORS" appear on the LCD. I know that much. What I said was it doesn't seem to "POWER ON" even when the power is applied.. Shouldn't it show me that it's not dead, at least, by way of lightening on the screen?

Hi, Paul;

Thank you for your kind reply.

But you didn't answer my question. "Shouldn't the LCD respond by lighting up the screen, when power is connected to VDD and VSS?".

I connected the wires according to page 4. But I haven't done anything to initialize the LCD with the software yet. Nothing is happening yet. Is this expected behavior of the LCD? Are you sure that the LCD is acting normal?

I attach the picture of my hookup with MSP430F5528 EVM (I tried by the file was too large...)

The connections are like below;

SDA -> P4.1 (PM_UCB1SDA) ->  GPIO1
SCL -> P4.2 (PM_UCB1SCL) -> GPIO2
VSS -> Board voltage reference
VDD -> 3.3V of the board
VOUT -> VSS via 1uF tantalum capacitor
C1+ & CI1- connected via 1uF tantalum capacitor
10k ohm pull-up resistor connecting SDA and VDD
10k ohm pull-up resistor connecting SCL and VDD

As I told you I bought 2 pieces. I'm testing only 1 of it and the other set hasn't been removed out of the box. So, if things clear up, I'll test the other one.

I await your kind help.

Dear Sir;
I want to use this LCD with MSP430.

I purchased 2 pices of the sample LCD and hooked up to 3.2VDC (VCC from MSP430F5528). And I hooked up the capacitors and the pull-up resistors. I only have to connect to RST, SDA, SCL to finish the connection. But I believed, though I'm a total newbie, that I'll be able to see the display will respond by lighting up the screen when I connect the power.

But until now, nothing comes on. Shall I finish connecting the remainder of the pins to see the LCD power on>?

Also, the data sheet is kind of confusing or misleading. On the drawing, it says the pin numbers are from 8 to 1 (from left to right). But on page 4, the pin order is the other way around. Which instruction should I follow?

Please help this pitiful newbie.
