20 September 2017 Question by: Andrew | Product code: 13-6026
Q. What connectors does this require - I see a 3 pin molex type connector for power and serial. What is the rapid code for these?
A. Hi Andrew, thank you for your question. The following headers could be used or they can be soldered directly to: 22-0840 3 way + 22-0822, 22-0838 2 way + 22-0820 and crimps 22-0836.

11 January 2017 Question by: Jake | Product code: 13-6026
Q. Does the kit come with all the components needed for assembly
A. Hi Jake, thank you for your question. Yes this is a complete kit that will require assembly with a soldering iron and basic tools (not supplied).

25 May 2016 Question by: john | Product code: 13-6026
Q. I have assembled the lcd module and fully checked everything is in placed. The screen does not show anything even on test mode. Any ideas what is wrong. Am I right to assume that the driver code is already loaded on the supplied PIC chip?
A. Hi John, thank you for your question. We would suggest trying the contrast control first (potentiometer on PCB) page 5 of the data sheet ensuring the power supply is accurately between 4.5-5.5V maximum and double check all the soldering connections made.

01 April 2014 Question by: Ryan | Product code: 13-6026
Q. Where do I put the battery as it has red and black wire. But in the instructions it doesn't say where they need to go.
A. Hi Ryan. Thank you for your question. The red wire goes to the positive (+) and the black wire goes to the negative (-).

Q. Can it be controlled via the control device option in circuit wizard?
A. No, the control device option will only set High or Low level not provide the more complex programming required for this unit.

29 February 2012 Question by: Bill | Product code: 13-6026
Q. Is it possible to connect a Genie chip to any other backlit LCD display?
A. Thanks for your enquiry Bill. This particular module has been constructed so that the PCB backplate accepts the data lines in the correct order. There is no reason why another display could not be used but care must be used to ensure the display input lines are correctly connected to the appropriate pins.
