sammichFM LCD question

1 post in this topic

I am finally building my old sammichFM kit :)

The LCD that came with it is an Orient Display FSTN Negative red

On the PCB there is an option for "High-power" backlight (250mA)

The standard configuration is for "Low-power" (25mA)

The paper for the LCD says: Max V= 4,1 and that the forward current for the RED backlight is 210mA

Which setting should I use?

I think it is a bit dark/dim, or maybe it's the type of LCD.

 Is it safe for this LCD to use the High-power setting?


Cheers, Hal
