I got a LCD removed from some device. I need to check whether it is working. But the thing is I only have the LCD, no datasheet or any documentation regarding that.
I have an Arduino mega 2560. I'm trying to drive the LCD from that.But I don't know the pin-out. Is there some way to identify the pins ? (or somehow drive the LCD).
These are the details i can give about the LCD
- It has 16 pins
- There's this number printed on back side PVC160205Q (I tried to find a datasheet for the number. But couldn't find anything usefull)
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
For better understanding, I've drawn following image. Hope that'll help. That's what you see when looking at the LCD from front.
In addition to the 16 pins, there are two other + and - pins (though, they haven't used) at the right edge, as shown
