In this instructable you will learn about how to make a LCD display with an arduino.

Thing you will need-:
1. 10 k potentiometer
2. Male header wired
3. jumper wires
4. Breadboard
5. Arduino(I used UNO r3)
6. Connection cable for arduino

Step 1:

First Solder the given holes of the lcd with Male header pins so that your connection can be done
<p>is there anything else that I can use instead of potentiomenteer ??/</p>
<p>Yes, you can use a resistor for a set value! :)</p>
<p>Hi! Im new to arduuino. I just got an Arduino uno R3. I have followed all the connection rules to connect an LCD but it would not display the hello world properly . All I'm getting is random numbers and symbol. Can anyone please help</p>
Do you mind if I ask something about your LCD?
Please do, it isn't in the Parts List <br>From the photo I can see it is 16 x 2 Characters, 8 x 5 pixels per character... <br>Does it use the HD44780 chip?
Clean that board before you solder to it!
Hi, <br>I don't have a lot experience in Soldering. <br>Would you mind if I ask what do you mean when you say clean that board before soldering?
I'd suggest reading through this, possibly buy a pcb and some LEDs and other various components to practice on.<br><br>Here is the link:<br>http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-solder/
