I'm guessing this is a permissions problem. You mentioned a reinstall, so
check to make sure that /dev/ttyS0 or whatever is set right. If you're
running LCDd as root, it should be fine anyway, but if you are running it
as a normal user, make sure that user's got read/write access to the port.

If that's not the problem, make sure setserial isn't screwing up your port

Let me know if this doesn't work.
