[Resolved] LCD display not working
« on: January 25, 2017, 02:22:03 PM »
Hi,
I soldered my Preenfm2 kit, which i bought directly from the preenfm-shop.
Unfortunately the LCD-screen ist only showing background lightning and no characters when powering over usb. The 3 leds are flashing before and I have also access to the usb-stick with the pfm2-folder.
Any idea what is wrong here?

Here are some photos of the build:

Cheers

I think you need to add a wire across the oled resistor spot in upper right corner to complete the circuit.

Do you mean this connection (see picture) even if I have a LCD display?

Yes it needs to be wire.

If you have a PCB revision R5d, you’ll have an additional resistor named Oled on the right of the above picture .
Populate it with a 22 ohm if you have an OLED display or shortcut it with a resistor pin if you have a LCD display.

Let us know when it's working :)

I used one wire of the 22 ohm resistor which was included in the kit (needed for oled but not for lcd displays) to short the two points.

And now it works :)

Nice ! Thanks for the update  :)
Don't forget you can adjust the LCD contrast with the variable resistor...
