I got a 16x2 LCD screen, and...

Wed Jan 01, 2014 7:13 pm

I got one of those LCD screens from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1109), and I soldered it all. When I put it on my Pi, the Pi couldn't 'sense' it. I did the command 'sudo i2cdetect -y 1', and it didn't find anything. I did -y 0, too. I followed the instructions on learn.adafruit.com, and it still doesn't work. Can anyone help me? I really want to use this screen.

The most important leg of a three legged stool is the one that's missing.
It's called thinking. Why don't you try it sometime?

Do you mean you didn't do it, or do you mean you didn't need to do it? If i2c-bcm2708 is blacklisted then the I2C port isn't going to work.
The instructions for my 20 x 4 I2C board may help, but should essentially be the same as adafruits :
