This is a step-by-step guide on to to use an lcd with an arduino. It is very simple. If you still have question leave them in the comments. Here is also a video to make it easier:
Step 1: Components
-computer (to programm the arduino).
It is welcome to have a bacis knowlage of arduino programming, but you can also go without it.
Step 2: Wireing
There is not much to say about wireing follow the schematic if it confuses you watch the video here:
Step 3: Programming
i cant really explain every line of cod here, so i will just breafly explain (Beginner tutorial:
We are using an example from Liquid crystal librery.
2.configure the pins
3.lcd.begin(16,2); -(screen resolution)
5.Upload - Make sure the correct board and COM port are selected!
Now writing the code like this will result in an error this is just an overview.
Step 4: Play Around
This part is important is helps you learn more about arduino you can make a simple game on it, on you can display data from diffrent sensors. Thanks fore reading.
