[Small LCD and Encoder]Firmware does not control the Display
March 05, 2017 10:30AM
Hello,
I fear there is a topic on this behalf but I sware I couldn't fount any.

I have bought a chinese 3D-printer kit with controller board and 2004 LCD display. As the main board was been toasted for some reason I bought an arduino, a RAMPS and a display adaptor (hard to find; most common with display). Now all is here and I load the marlin firmware onto the arduino after configuration was completed. After that I connected the display with the adaptor but the display stays black (or blue to be exact). As I press the encoder button beeper give sa little 'blib' and LCD lights up for shorter than one second. After that all is normal again which means 'no display'. Doo anyone have any suggestion what to do here?


// @section lcd

//
// LCD LANGUAGE
//
// Here you may choose the language used by Marlin on the LCD menus, the following
// list of languages are available:
//    en, an, bg, ca, cn, cz, de, el, el-gr, es, eu, fi, fr, gl, hr, it,
//    kana, kana_utf8, nl, pl, pt, pt_utf8, pt-br, pt-br_utf8, ru, tr, uk, test
//
// :{ 'en':'English', 'an':'Aragonese', 'bg':'Bulgarian', 'ca':'Catalan', 'cn':'Chinese', 'cz':'Czech', 'de':'German', 'el':'Greek', 'el-gr':'Greek (Greece)', 'es':'Spanish', 'eu':'Basque-Euskera', 'fi':'Finnish', 'fr':'French', 'gl':'Galician', 'hr':'Croatian', 'it':'Italian', 'kana':'Japanese', 'kana_utf8':'Japanese (UTF8)', 'nl':'Dutch', 'pl':'Polish', 'pt':'Portuguese', 'pt-br':'Portuguese (Brazilian)', 'pt-br_utf8':'Portuguese (Brazilian UTF8)', 'pt_utf8':'Portuguese (UTF8)', 'ru':'Russian', 'tr':'Turkish', 'uk':'Ukrainian', 'test':'TEST' }

#define LCD_LANGUAGE de

//
// LCD Character Set
//
// Note: This option is NOT applicable to Graphical Displays.
//
// All character-based LCD's provide ASCII plus one of these
// language extensions:
//
//  - JAPANESE ... the most common
//  - WESTERN  ... with more accented characters
//  - CYRILLIC ... for the Russian language
//
// To determine the language extension installed on your controller:
//
//  - Compile and upload with LCD_LANGUAGE set to 'test'
//  - Click the controller to view the LCD menu
//  - The LCD will display Japanese, Western, or Cyrillic text
//
// See [github.com]

This is the whole LCD/SD section of my configuration.h file. Can anyone find any problems?

p.s.: Of course compilation worked fine.

Many single board controllers have the lcd cables backwards compared to a display adaptor board.

So you need to turn you cables around 180 degrees, but the plug key stops you..

some have resorted to

Hello,
fortunately I didn't have to be such brutal ... I just connect two turned plugs on the two cables ... and all is fine. Thanks!!
