How is your LCD wired? Are you using a potentiometer? Did you try adjusting it for contrast?

Yes, when an LCD normally powers up should all the blocks be turned on or off ?
If you turn the contrast up all the way will the blocks go black ?

Yes, they can appear to be all all (dark), depending on your contrast (set by potentiometer) and your viewing angle.
Check that you are wired correctly, that you are addressing the correct pins, check your code, etc... Restart your Netduino
