    Adjusting the Lcd

    Well I got a lcd.. Pics at http://lcdpics.homestead.com/index.html


    However I donít know how to make set it up, I know how to configure the touch screen however I have no idea on how to adjust the brightness and the contrast.. also the picture on the screen is way to the left.. so is there a diagram or something on what pins to touch to change these things??

    Thanks in advance..

    Question

    Hey!
    Where'd you get that LCD? How much was it? I'd really like to get something like that one.

    ok, I have the same exact screen, but I recieved a control with it. The control is basically a small pushpad with a very thin ribbon cable. The cable attaches to the LCD and by using the controller pad, you can adjust the brightness, screen placement, etc. By the sound of things, I suspect you never got this controller pad.

    Can you take a picture of the controller pad...it may be simply switches hooked up to the cable. You could make your own.
