I know this is an oddly specific question and it my not be an AVR question per se, but I was wondering if anyone has experience dealing with connecting a Lumex 16x2 LCD character display to AVR MCs.

When I test continuity I find that there is a short from pin 1 to pin 14. Any Ideas?

Sort of like a treasure hunt! Is this the datasheet? Looks like 1 is gnd and 14 is D7. That shouldnt ohm together!

Bob, Yes that's the one. Before I connected it to my robot Pins 1 and 14 did not short. Now they do. I am thinking I have smoked this thing. Thanks for your input.
