I think that this model of digital picture frame will be easier for others to follow than my first digital picture frame. I learned a lot making my first one and it showed when making this one. Please look at my other Instructable "Cheap 'n Easy Digital Picture Frame"
for pictures of the wiring since all I have are "finished" pictures of this new one.
So, here is the "parts" list:
*Shadow Box for $12 from Hobby Lobby (needs to be about 1 1/2" thick to house the guts)
*Sony 5" PSOne LCD screen off of eBay for around $40 (make sure to get the power adapter that comes with it too because you'll need the...)
*Sony PSOne LCD power adapter (or any power adapter rated from 7.2v to 9v that provides 1 amp of current or more)
*SanDisk Digital Photo Viewer (about $12 from eBay if I remember correctly)
- The second picture seen below is from my first digital picture frame's Instructable page. The picture viewer takes many types of memory cards and automatically plays a slideshow on your tv via composite video or S-video. We'll be using composite for simplicity's sake.
*Matting cut to your frame's dimensions
*Power jack from the Sony PSOne LCD screen
*Soldering iron, solder, flux, wires, etc. (if you don't have these and don't know how to use them, check out all the great tutorials found on this site and all over the internet. Google is your friend; the purpose of this Instructable is not to teach you how to solder or the basics of the basics of electronics.)
*Something to cover the back with, such as the original back to the shadow box or a large piece of plastic or wood or something. More on this in the construction step.
