LCD Screen (The second attempt)

Postby ~Rob » Fri Jan 27, 2006 2:36 am

My new screen arrived yesterday and I began work on it. This time I ordered an official Sony screen and it's much easier to work with.

This is where it's going to end up, I just need to finish off th wireing and mount it. So far so good!

(I've got a new phone, SE K750i, highly recommend it, 2mP camera is excellent!)

I can't get any output on the screen with my PC, however, it works just fine on the 200Mhz (yup, it's 10 years old) laptop. Can't figure it out. I know I need to re-do the wireing to tidy up, but there's nothing with my PC!

It's all a bit pants really

No suggestions, but here's hoping you pull this off. Been wanting to do something similar for some time!

Been busy for the last couple of days so I haven't had a chance to get any more done. Maplins are out of 10 core cable at the moment so it might be a week or so before it gets going again. Got some other fish to fry first

It feels like a huge update, but I haven't really done much!

I tried to wire it in with VGA one final time tonight with no real joy (nothing on screen still) so I decided to fall back to composite. It looks like I have a faulty S-Video to composite connector which is why it was black and white. Afer a little web searching and testing the adaptor we bodged a piece of wire to get colour (Not very good quality) so I will make up a straight S-video lead that can wire directly to the PCB.

I've also been playing with Samurize which is a great addition if you already use MBM!

The board with the origional samurize layout that I downloaded (credit to the author, whoever that may be!)

A better picture

This is the layout I'm working on, pretty cool I think, as you can tell, it's based on the origional theme, but I've played with it so the temps are read from MBM instead of speedfan and it shows what winamp is doing. I've just got to add a couple more meter like weather and something else to fill the space, maybe a winamp visulisation! It's so hard to work with 640x480 on a 5" LCD though!

Anyways, next step is to build the cable and then I'll mount it!

Wow, dude. Freaking slick. Is samurize free? How much overhead is there? And that's just a PSOne screen?? Sounds like I might have a project some day.... :twisted:
