Re: Need help with LCD.

Can you post some pics? Are you sure its a char LCD and not a graphics LCD? I know with most graphics LCDs (atleast the ones I have experence with) I think they had the same pinout but required stuff like negative voltage (easily generated with a hacked MAX2232A circuit. and so on..

Post some pics; im sure one of us can identify it.

Hi MickM,

There are pretty number of blog entries of people working with that LCD in Google SERP.
And I got to know that the KS0066 IC is HD44780 compatible (yeah, contradicts to your research). Few links below which you may find useful.

Nice LCD guide: http://tronixstuff.wordpress.com/tag/ks0066/
A project which used the same LCD: http://bsselektronika.hu/index.php?w=wY9Zx7z7gK  (Google translate might be needed)
