Exactly, that is why I am leading towards the mainboard being bad or having other issues. You should have not had any issues loading any of the examples. I got the Jarduino sketch to load up my first try.
If you look at the upper left hand corner of my board, you will see "Made in Italy" This is the real Arduino board, anything else is a knockoff and you are taking a chance with it. I ordered my mainboard off of Amazon.com.

Edit: It could be a firmware issue also

You would have to check the manufactures website, and download it from there. As far as uploading it, I have no clue.....

hey bud, my parts came in and I put the three pieces together. I followed the instructions for the Aquarium Controller. Now I am stuck, all I am getting is a white LCD screen. I tried various examples and they all do not work.

Anything I could be doing possibly wrong?

What parts did you order? Depending on shield/lcd combo you need to make sure the sketch is modified for them. Ill be away from my computer today, ill try to post tonite what lines need modified.

I assume all the coding compiles fine?

If so, then it might be a hardware issue. Check to make sure you have everything plugged in, etc (the basics).

Some things to consider:

Is the sample code made for an older version of the Arduino coding software (i.e. 0023)?

Did you update your libraries?

If anything, I would check the sample code to see if it was made with an older version, and if it was, compile and upload to try that instead.
