Serial LCD 632 - BLinking cursor

Just got my Serial LCD - 632

Installed CrystalControl

COM 1 settings: 9600 BAUD; Serial LCD set to 9600 baud

The LCD initializes (CF logo + baudrate); but then shows a blinking cursor (top-left) and does not show any screen I enter in Crystalcontrol.

Can you help me?

BTW I also posted this in the Crystal Control forum, but I think this is a better place....

Guess my serial cable is not OK. Pin 2 and 3 are straight through as well as cross (so 2 connects to 2 AND 3 and 3 connects to 2 and 3.......)
