lol! dont cry... there are some version of HD44780 which need -ve supply at the.. contrast.. so better try.. connecting.. -5V instead of +5V with the POT. coz.. ur LCD need less voltage for contrast.. thats the reason.. at 0V you are atleast getting something. and dont cry

the project idea is really simple.. works with simple loops in the main function..
ok brief description about the working of the program... seconds are incremented after every 1 sec.. and when it reaches 59 it becomes 0 again.. when it passes 0 minutes are incremented and when minutes passes 59 to 00 count it increments the count. when it reaches 12 it says pm and then 24 or 00 comes it says.. am.
and after every month count it can be 28, 29, 30, 31 depending on the month. it will change the day and the date.. every 24 hrs.. and when the month out passes it increments the month.. and when 12 month passes it increment the year..
thats how normal clock works..

Now with the big size characters.. i use the CGRAM area of the LCD. for more details on the CGRAM please read the datasheet of HD44780.. so.. i made 8 custom characters.. and with those 8 custom characters i made those big numbers.

thats how the LCD works...

Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog! https://onanadiete.ru/alpha-numeric-reasoning-questions-and-answers-pdf.pdf alpha numeric reasoning questions and answers pdf alpha numeric reasoning questions and answers pdf
