|Hardware Required: |
There are several +5v and Ground connections for the parallel LCD. Use the power bus (strip) along the edge to run a single pair to the Arduino, and then break it out to the different pins on the display.
Use different color wires to make connections easier to follow.
NOTE: You must have the 16-pin header soldered into the LCD module before starting here!
Try this: connect pin 15 on the display to an available digital pin on the Arduino. Add code to your sketch to control the LED brightness!
