It's a long time ago on this forum isn't it?

Yes, for the moment i use 2 trimmers for the display. I forgot to order the integrated circuit. In fact when i put the contrast regulation almost to ground it looks good but you can see the square blocks behind the characters. So i add a negative supply to make the contrast regulation a little negative. But as i've sad, there is a very small "soft spot".


B.t.w. i download you're latest software version for the optrex variant. When i turn the controller off there is some message in a strange language. What does it mean?

Hi Johan,
Yes, long time

Can't comment on the white version of the Optrex, but for the blue one, the square blocks are still present. Very faint, but present. I "cured" the problem using a slightly smoked window filter in front of the display...

And the "off" message is gaelic indeed (thanks Manu), saying "What a pity ! Bye and see you soon"

BTW, very nice work, with fast soldering Did you manage your way through the configuration menus? Is something unclear ?

Joho : seems that you choose a "transmissive" mode display. Mine is Transflective (positive mode).

Give me some more time ... I promise you'll get your pics.

Hi cheff,

Gaelic for someone from France? or has it something to do with Asterix,Obelix and...Idefix???
As you said, the blocks are faint. Good idea such an extra optic filter. I need some extra protection. Ordered at Farnell?

I saw the configuration menu's but didn't play with it. First i must mount the ir receiver and i'm not sure about the pin arangement
. The datasheet doesn't show pin one. So i must check your fotographs first.

Hi Manu,

I think you're right with that positive or negathive mode but i ordered the display at RS with your number as showed below.

"Salut,

j'ai pris le mien chez rs (ref 620-4400) lettres noires sur fond blanc - looks

optrex lcd C 51505NFQJ-LW-ALN "

So you should have the same one.

Gr.
Johan

Nope,
Le mien c'est ... SLW-AIN (noir sur fond blanc)

Yours is much more :

51505NFQJ-LW-ALN

According to optrex datasheet its a transmsissive (fond noir) one, not transflective.

Just wrong birthplace

Yes : http://fr.farnell.com/177145/optoele...lux-2711xg-1-0

Look here, it should help (if it's a TSOP2236) :

Manu,

The Netherlands is a very international(and multi cultural) country.
At school we must learn Dutch,English,German and French for 3-4 years minimum. Depends a bit which type of education.


Cheff,

Thanx for the info. Sometimes life can be so easy!

It's a wonderfull project. thanx a lot.

Default optrex display

Last days i reveived some pm about mounting the optrex display.

http://www.optrex.com/products/list....ultsPerPage=25

The connector isn't exactly pin compatible ... but's not so difficult to manage that.


I hope the picture tells the story
