OLEDs / Re: NHD-0216SZW-BG5 compatibility?
« on: April 17, 2014, 06:06:27 PM »
Hi Michael,

Thank you for the reply and help. Pins 15 & 16 are no connect, and I also disconnected pin 3 with no luck. You are probably right about the timing. If that is the case, do you know of a way to make it work? Is there a way to compensate for the timing differences? It would be nice to use the beautiful OLED display for my project(s), if possible - I was eager to see the fast responsiveness compared to LCD. If not, that is fine, I'll just stay with using the LCDs.

Thanks again for your help,
Best regards,

OLEDs / NHD-0216SZW-BG5 compatibility?
« on: April 15, 2014, 06:24:44 PM »

I recently purchased the NHD-0216SZW-BG5 OLED display. I tested it with this universal frequency counter and it works fine:   

My plan is to use the OLED display to replace a smaller YJD1602A-1 LCD display in a radio project.

I have used a NewHaven NHD-0216SZ-FSW-FBW LCD display and that works perfect as a replacement.

The problem is that the NHD-0216SZW-BG5 OLED display is not working properly with the radio. When power is applied, sometimes the display turns on, sometimes not. When it does turn on it only displays gibberish. I have checked the pinouts on the data sheet and they are the same as the LCD's I have used.

The radio uses pins 1-6 & 11-16. The micro-controller on the radio I identified as a PIC16F884-I/PT

Is the OLED not even compatible with this? Do I need to wire it differently or change some jumpers?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,
