I bought the 632 16 X 2 display. It was working fine with Smartie and then all of a sudden I get black boxes in all the fields. I know it must be the contrast because at different angles I can actually see the text. I don't see anyway to adjust the contrast. By the way I bought the kit version with bracket and serial cable. So I don't think it could be cabling.
