I am using SPI to interface a PIC microcontroller to the 634. I cannot seem to activate the backlight. I have the LCD and LED pins tied to +5. The datasheet says that to turn on the backlight, I should send "\014\100" to the LCD. This command seems to do nothing. Different values for the backlight do not affect the LCD either. How am I supposed to turn on the backlight?
