- Q: Ok so I got the L2014 and hooked it up like the "inmotion" schematic like Tom Brandt said in an earlier post. I'm using winamp and the Lorty plugin on a p133, but I can't get the lcd to work. I know it's wired right, since I've checked that about 100 times. When I turn on the lcd, I get 2 solid lines across rows 1 and 3, but that's it. Can anyone help me out and tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
A: When you start the LCD plugin it initializes the LCD and the two lines on row 1 and 3 will go away. Then the LCD will start displaying the song name, time, equalizer, etc. I suggest finding the program lcdprint.exe on the net. I would send it to you, but its on my other pc. The program is a easy way to make sure that the LCD is working. It is a little dos program that displays a text file to any size LCD, and if your lcd is connected properly. Check your parallel port setting too. Make sure the port is set to 378, and that it is in ECP mode, and if it still doesn't work try EPP mode. Good Luck! Tom
