I need help with this project. I want to connect SIX LCD 16x2 screens to my Pi and send different messages between the screens. I was wondering if I could use I2C but there is a problem with the personal address 0x27 is the same for each screen.


Do you know how I can change the address? Or another appropriate way to connect them?

Thanks for your time!

If its one of the standard i2c 16x2 controllers it should have 3 pairs of address pads labelled A0,A1,A2. Jumping these according to the table below changes the i2c address.
