Not in any direct way, no. You can repeatedly send the same character to the same location from two different fonts (one normal and one inverted) to cause it to "blink". You could also send a space character alternating with your character (using a non-proportional font would be easiest). But in eit...

Steve, I am going to offer to recreate this font for you since I happen to have a little time here while I get up to speed on some other things. I have discovered that we have a "dump file system to disk" program. If you can send me the output from that program, I believe that I can recreate your fo...

Manual override

For the time being, let us assume that this is a communication problem, but please check the power supply voltage with a multimeter and ensure that the power is stable at 5 volts +- 0.2V. If you are unsure of the power supply, you should look at it with a scope. Start by getting the module unto a kn...

No, it is not, however its position should always be predictable and under your control. It can also, of course, be set to where you think it SHOULD be if you are of the mind to do so.

From your photo, it doesn't look very inviting to that solution. I've done it, but pins sticking up from the board held in place by nothing but solder - especially in twos - is a little ugly... I believe that some of our other boards have a slightly better layout for that. You could, I suppose, run ...

Generally, programming languages are never capable of input or output. When you use the "print" function, you are doing just that - using a function. The language itself really knows nothing about "printing". QBASIC (whatever that is - seriously) probably comes installed with the ability to "print" ...

I think the most sensible thing I can say about this is "Its a pain in the butt". I have in the past soldered straight jumper block posts on boards for this purpose. I have not needed it in some time, but I heard a rumor that at the very least, the size of the solder jumpers and the spacing of jumpe...

No, it is not the "clean" font since "clean" is only 7 or 8 pixels tall and 5 wide... but then again... maybe it could be described as 6x9 if you added the gaps?

And "clean" is on the www.matrixorbital.ca site

I looked around here and I don't have a font like that either. I am currently checking on the possibility of getting it out of the unit. Which firmware revision is it? You should be able to use this software to find out if you don't already know. http://www.matrixorbital.ca/software/software_alpha/u...

I'm going to start real slow and take it bit by bit because I am a little rusty. First, the unit was made by a robotic machine and those pads are given a little dab of solder paste. It is very improbable (I want to say impossible) that it is "used". I don't know the details of the board right now, b...

Please (and sorry if this sounds absurd) have a look in the box it came in again and see if you might have missed the CD on the bottom of the box - perhaps under a piece of paper.

I didn't read all this thread, but if there is any question about getting information about wiring up your own switches, don't worry about it. I or someone else will help. Also, yes, it is possible to actually hook up 24 separate switches or keys or buttons and cable them all into the display. Look ...
