Hello, I just got this shield yesterday. I soldered the connectors on, I think I did it correctly (though it wasn't beautiful).
I put it on my Arduino and plugged it in. I ran the blink program and that works. I have no reason to believe there is anything wrong with the Arduino itself. There is a red LED that lights up on the shield when my Arduino is plugged in. The Screen also lights up. The screen displays several black boxes.
The issue I am having is that when I run the hello world program from here http://linksprite.co...ino_Sample_Code
The black boxes don't change. I press the reset button, nothing happens. I hold the reset button, nothing happens.
I've attached a picture.
Any ideas for things I could test here?
