5.06v is great. Who knows, it could have been either problem you mentioned. But at least now it sounds like youre in business.

Oh yeah! In business indeed - I'm pretty sure I could have used the other side pads on the LCD (run jumper wires from the header pins to the other side) and it would work, I might try it later if I get REALLY bored

I did some through hole continuity checks on the old LCD, and I had a few more pads that did not have continuity through them, but all the pads on the opposite side of the LCD were good... *shrug* I won't throw that LCD away for now.

Well - after 40 miles - not a hick-up. Solid as a rock!

It's a shame that besides the bad voltage regulator, that all my other problems were self induced

i now have this problem. but its different. mine was working before as you all have seen. i still can cycle through all the brightness levels. and if i tilt my screen at a very sharp angle, i can sorta read the display. anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

bah damnit. nevermind. its working now. something must be loose. damn. well i kinda dont want to yank it apart unless it happens again. the case i mean.

i figured out what happened the first time. i had it plugged into a hub that wasnt powered. powered the hub, and the display lit up light it should.
