LCD arduino shield kit question

by SpecialBomb on Thu Apr 17, 2014 8:47 pm

I have bought a LCD shield kit for arduino, but I have not gotten it yet. I would just like to ask, if there is any way to disable the backlight without desodering the lcd or installing a switch, because Im planning to make this portable, and it will drain my portable usb charger (which works with arduino just fine). Please help, I'm a 13 year old electrical engineer in training, and it will help me in advance.

You have software control over the backlight. You can turn it off programmatically in response to one of the buttons if you want.
