does the backlight work? I can give you $5 for it.
This is one of Arbys' that I got from a guy who said he didn't want it anymore. I now know why he didn't want it, he couldn't get it to work. Anyway, I can't either (which doesn't mean much since I don't know much about electronics) so I'm letting it go to the first person who will give me a decent price for it.
I'm sorry. I should have provided more information. THe backlight lights up just fine and the pots do what they're supposed to do. Upon starting the 'puter lines 1 and 3 light up just like on my 20x4. The only problem is that I cannot get anything to display on it. I've tried Lorty's and when that didn't work I tried LCDprint which found the LPT port but said there was not a disply attached to it. I've looked at all of the solder joints and they seem to be alright. My parralel port does have ECP turned on too.
