Wiring Display-o-Tron LCD to Pi Zero

Sat Aug 11, 2018 6:47 pm

Hello,

I’m starting a new project using a couple of Raspberry Pi Zero Ws and need a small display for them. I bought a Display-o-Tron LCD (not the HAT or 3k), thinking that it would just plug and play with the GPIO holes on the pi, but this doesn’t seem to work.

I’ve looked around for some examples of other people wiring the LCD directly to a pi, but can’t find any help so far. Can anyone give me some advice on how the LCD should be wired to get it working? I would rather not buy the HAT version as it is much bigger than the Pi Zero, and I also already have the LCDs.

Many thanks,
Jordan

P.S. I’m pretty sure there’s enough information in the below links to work out a wiring plan, but I’m very new to hardware stuff and can’t really understand it all.
