I have an LCD Display HD44780 model and I was reading his datasheets
I saw the it has the functionality to be switched on/off as stated:
Display on/off control: D = 0; Display off // C = 0; Cursor off // B = 0; Blinking off
and by continue reading it states:
Then he states again:
Display On/Off Control
D: The display is on when D is 1 and off when D is 0. When off, the display data remains in DDRAM.
But I can't reaaly understand what I fisically need to do, can anyone help me out to better understand?
EDIT: For better clarify myfinal goal is to completely (power OFF) the LCD screen, I have some NPN transistors and if this would be the best solution, how about the wiring? do I have only to stop suppying VDO?
