Problem with Sparkfun Display LCD-11062 (Nokia 6100-Display)
A few days ago I purchased one of these displays: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11062.
I've connected my Sparkfun LCD 6100 as it's described in the description from https://mbed.org/cookbook/Nokia-LCD. The Display seems to display something, but I hardly can't read it. Only in this angle you can read a little bit, but the background color is missing.
When I start up my program, the display work for a couple of milliseconds properly, but then you don't see a thing. If you want to look at it normally you cant read anything.
At first I thought, it might be my contrast, but when I've tried to change it in the library, nothing happened. I also tried to change my contrast to '-53' like it's recommended by the datatsheet of Sparkfun. Without success. (http://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/datasheets/BreakoutBoards/ColorLCDAppNote.pdf)
Is it possible that my display is broken? I hope someone can help me. Does anyone have the same Problem?

I had a similar problem which is what led me to your post hoping to find an answer. After a bit of experimentation I got the example at http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/LCD/SFE_lcd_driver_c.zip working by changing the setting for the first parameter of DISPCTL from 0x00 to 0x0c.
Hope that helps!
