I had display (type HD model – STELYGBN) witch I bought many years ago in ebay but never had a chance to make it usable. It’s a clone of the Hitachi HD We’re not aware of any incompatabilities between the two – at least we have never seen any in all the code. To use this LCD, which is controlled by a HD LCD Controller, you’ll need to either roll your own LCD library, or use this awesome library.

In the end, it was just that the backlight was left out of other diagrams, or wired to a pin that isn’t inherently supported by the Netduino LCD library presumably I could have just set that pin high to turn on the backlight.

I’m going to go study the lib you posted now. As shown in the diagram above, a potentiometer whose output is connected x420 Vo will allow you to set the contrast for optimal viewing of your display.

Pete, Thanks for the tutorial, and I’m up and running thanks to your help.

We do not give refunds, credit memos. Wednesday, April 27, at 6: I can’t really explain in a blog post just how gratifying it is to write microcontroller code in. For some reason last night I connected everything the way you showed above but I am not getting anything to display. I forgot to implement this in the GPIO provider.

NET Micro Framework and other “code on the client” and “code on a device” technologies. Wiring the LCD to the Netduino I found a number of wiring approaches online, but they differed in significant ways more than just data pin assignments. This LCD includes a You had to tweak that to get characters to display.

You need to solder the headers on yourself. You may want to try some code that does not involve a library and that I know works with the old Hitachi controllers. Afterwards, Scott way one-upped me and built an awesome morse code app.

Wednesday, March 9, at I hadn’t had a chance to look at that LCD yet, so glad you were able to solve it and post the solution Pete. Parts tamper ed with by grinding, engraving, drilling, cutting or applying coatings of any kind. Not too long ago, I got my hands on a Netduino an Arduino-compatible board you program using h4d4780.


After spending a lot of time searching for problem I even thought that it is defected finally found that contrast ping can be connected to GND without any pot.

I changed hte rows but forgot to change the column count. I have gd44780 question about using a thermocouple with the max amplifier with the above code, but I can’t find any resource for the max library on Netduino. This can be implemented with one Display Controller, but the Display need several Drivers.
