After assembly and using the python code from github (Adafruit_CharLCDPlate) the five buttons work. Backlight on/off works. But nothing appears in the display
(no cursor, no text). Searching the forums I find this thread and the final post says
please note the deigns is similar but the code we have will NOT work for the i2c backpack , its ONLY for the RGB plate! The code will have to be adapted to support the backpack- no ETA as to when we can get to it.
Should the python code from github (Adafruit_CharLCDPlate) work? If not, what changes would be necessary in the Adafruit_CharLCDPlate python code to make it work?
