List of hardware:

1 arduinio
2 bread board
3 LCD display 16*2
4 10k register

Step 1: Pinconfiguration

Set up the pin according to the picturre,

consider that other object as 10k register.

This Programme available on Arduino LCDLibrary.


  LiquidCrystal Library - Hello World

Demonstrates the use a 16x2 LCD display.  The LiquidCrystal
library works with all LCD displays that are compatible with the
Hitachi HD44780 driver. There are many of them out there, and you
can usually tell them by the 16-pin interface.

This sketch prints "Hello World!" to the LCD
and shows the time.

  The circuit:
* LCD RS pin to digital pin 12
* LCD Enable pin to digital pin 11
* LCD D4 pin to digital pin 5
* LCD D5 pin to digital pin 4
* LCD D6 pin to digital pin 3
* LCD D7 pin to digital pin 2
* LCD R/W pin to ground
* 10K resistor:
* ends to +5V and ground
* wiper to LCD VO pin (pin 3)

This example code is in the public domain.


// include the library code:
#include <LiquidCrystal.h>

// initialize the library with the numbers of the interface pins
LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);

void setup() {
  // set up the LCD's number of columns and rows:
  lcd.begin(16, 2);
  // Print a message to the LCD.
  lcd.print("hello, world!");

void loop() {
  // set the cursor to column 0, line 1
  // (note: line 1 is the second row, since counting begins with 0):
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  // print the number of seconds since reset:
<p>can we change the pin setup and modify the code? example: set the pin connection to lcd to 13,12, 11, 10,9, 8 and modify the library int into LiquidCrystal lcd(13,12,11,10,9,8); ? and Why theres a 10k variable resistor? where can we use it?</p>
<p>i use your code and connections on 20*4 jhd629-204A lcd with arduino uno.</p><p>It works i recieve text and stuff on the screen what i want but it can't light up the lcd.</p><p>what is the problem????</p><p>thanks in advance.</p>
<p>Pin's 15 and 16 control the backlight. Place a 220 ohm resistor on pin 15 and connect it your positive 5volt rail. Pin 16 needs to then be connected to ground</p>
<p>good instructable</p>
<p>i did connection according to this steps.but yet i didn't get any o/p in lcd.</p><p>what may be the issue?</p>
<p>Hi, remove the red wire from the potenciometer, just leave te blue and black wires.</p>
Might change the spelling to ...&quot;Display&quot;...so as to be correctly found when searching for instructables..
Thanks !!!. <br>I had a LCD lying around gathering dust. Finally got it working after reading your article. <br>Nice instructable :)
Thanks...for any further help you can contact us: <br> <br> <br>TechnoArt Group: <br> <br>technoartgroup007@gmail.com
