WINSTAR LCD WH1602A help needed (SOLVED)

Hello community!

I have started experimenting with a LCD and the Picaxe Serial Firmware chip (FRM010). The idea is to use it to display the values of an ADC input to help write code for my line follower.

I haven´t been able to display anything at all on the LCD (not even the welcome message). In the process of troubleshooting, my first stop is to confirm a weird pinout on the base of the winstar PCB.

If I understand it correctly, on the bottom row, from left to right, the pinout is in this order:

14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 16 15 (Corrected thanks to Octospider)

Can someone please confirm this?

Thanks everyone!

Someone over at the Picaxe forum was able to confirm the pinout. If anyone arrives at this post seeking answers, I suggest you take a look at the thread: http://www.picaxeforum.co.uk/showthread.php?p=174644#post174644

Is it possible to post a picture of the backside of the module?

According to the datasheet the pin layout is:

14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 16 15

Note the pin sequence for the backlight. 16 15

It is from the display side.
