LCD wiring help
Im going to be using an LCD set up with these specs : http://www.eio.com/lm4034.jpg
I dont need variable constrast or backlight , what type of resistors should I use, I dont want to use pots , I just want to have the backlight on an on and off switch . Anyone know what I should use. Im going to be using the LCD in a case using this softwarehttp://www.borderfield.com/lcd.php
Well, it all depends on the angle you're viewing from. You can try it without any and that might be fine. Others might need a 10k resistor. That's the reason for the pots: everybody's got a different setup.
And if you're just using winamp check out http://sourceforge.net/projects/lcdplugin/
If you like to monitor everything then what you got is best.
does anyone know which pot controls the contrast? I would prefer full contrast all the time , so the only thing Id need a pot for would be the backlight , but I would prefer to stay away from pots all together and just use resistors
