fried LCD ?

by ahdavidson on Tue Sep 29, 2009 1:12 pm

I saw this thread about having fried a 16x2 LCD: http://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=12228&start=15.

Do I have a similar problem?

In case it isn't clear from the photos, it's wired with no data, just power and Vo. I checked the pot and it is reading between 0.0 and 4.98 V. (High res photos here and here, if necessary.)

If it is fried, what manner of operator error did I commit to offend it so dramatically? Supplying a voltage outside the 0-5 range to Vo?

Thanks.
