The following guides may be helpful:

schema 1 HD44780
for a circuit with a potmeter-backlight, and

schema 2 HD44780
and for an 4x40

schema 3 HD44780
for one you can switch on and off with LCD Smartie.
I haven't tried them both and are not 101% sure they work.

Ok, i had some ppl from sweden who had 4 bit LCD's. One of them told me that you could mod your 4 bit LCD to a 8 bit by soldering wires directly to the chip.
the codes next to the pins indicate tell you what wires you can use in the above circuits
Beware not to solder anything wrong! Logo
