Hi! Today I'm show you my new project using an Arduino UNO, a Nokia 5110 display (PCD8544) and an IR sensor. I managed to write a sketch that's reading the data received by the IR sensor and then display the names of the pushed buttons on the screen. I also used Nokia's entire board with lcd and keyboard because I don't have the possibility to buy or make a breakout board for the LCD. It was a bit of pain to solder some wires on those tiny copper pads from the back of the lcd+keyboard board, but it's working ok and that's enough.
Now, I'm gonna let the pictures to speak from themselves. Cheers!

P.S.: I'm sorry but I cannot change the order of the pictures because there's a problem with the site...

LE: Here's a link with the document needed for reverse engineering the Nokia 5110 display board. https://www.dropbox.com/s/olc9jxofgeahb60/04UIF.PDF
<p>try update the nokia LCD to a TFT LCD! Don't worry about the coding of GUI display , here is a TFT LCD you can use with arduino without coding.</p><p>Here is a new UART TFT LCD, it support the WYSIWYG editor to build your UI in PC and download it via USB. It can be control by Arduino via UART, so just use the Serial.print() you can make it display many images. And do't worry about the font ! You can build it yourself and download to the TFT LCD.</p><p>Its indigogo page here with detailed in introduce:Amazing price!! 10USD 2.4&quot; with free shipping.....</p><p><a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nextion-a-cost-effective-high-performance-tft-hmi/x/4283045" rel="nofollow">https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nextion-a-cost-...</a></p><p>Here is 2 blogs about using the Arduino to build the UI tutorial:</p><p><a href="http://blog.iteadstudio.com/product-preview-nextion-in-an-arduino-project-2/" rel="nofollow">http://blog.iteadstudio.com/product-preview-nextio...</a></p><p><a href="http://blog.iteadstudio.com/product-preview-nextion-in-an-arduino-project-3/" rel="nofollow">http://blog.iteadstudio.com/product-preview-nextio...</a></p>
<p>The link whuch u have posted here says that the link is disabled...please help me out with this</p>

Hi, where have you found where you have to solder wires on main phone board? <br>Because I find it a lot easier, than to solder to that tiny pads in LCD connector..
i've attached a pdf with the schematics needed to make the proper soldering on the back of the board.
you should check for nokia 5110 service manual on internet ;) when i will have some free time i will put some pictures with the schematics ;) cheers!
