Thread: LCD panel init problems
face BY : Gennette, Bruce email (remove spam text)

Hitachi type LCDs are fairly old technology.  Even newer clones faithfully
copy the original timing specifications - which are VERY exacting.

At startup you either have to have the voltage powering the display rise at
a very exact rate, or . . .

Wait until after the chip should have initiallized, then hit it with 3
resets in a row, with the correct pauses for each reset command to be
executed.  After the 3 'reset to 8bit, normal cursor and movement
directions' commands (0x30) you then should set your desired mode(s), turn
off then turn on the display and clear & home the display.  This all takes
less than half a second and ensures a consistent startup.
