The LCD doesn't receive push button inputs, the CPU does.

You need at least 3 routines:

1. A routine to capture push button inputs
2. A routine to 'sanitize' the inputs and accept the data into a buffer (most likely, a state machine), and set a flag to indicate 'new data' is available.
3. A routine to 'print' the buffer (and any related text) onto the LCD.

Don't rely on the LCD to remember the state of the cursor and previous text output. It can, but this will give you limited future functionality. Refresh the display each time you want to update it, and only update it when new data is available.

Someone else here might. Sorry, I am currently swamped with work, and cannot quickly put anything together for you. Besides, I write asm, not C for embedded processor apps.

i'm able to do the program now using eeprom but my problem is i dont know how to logically implement my change password, ..
my problem is i cant intialize the value of eeprom adress 0 to a number that should not be pre declared in the introduction of my program so when it restart it never returned the pre declared value but instead read my stored value...
