Imon vfd - nothing but straight lines

Post by dablitz » Fri Oct 06, 2006 7:29 pm

I am running the silverstone LC14M. lirc works perfecly, but the lcd screen will only display under scores eg "____"

i am running kernel 2.6.16

echo test is ok, but will only show the underscore. I am just wondering if the screen may be finished

I do not think that the screen is finished, and wondering if its a kernel issue.

Oct 7 23:39:27 BlackBox kernel: /root/imon/imon_vfd.c: VFD port opened
Oct 7 23:39:27 BlackBox kernel: /root/imon/imon_vfd.c: VFD port closed

I am runnnig 2.6.16 kernel, could the latest drive screw up the screen enought that all i get are underscores.
