  • How To Use a Nokia Color LCD!

    Thank you Siana!I could not find pictures I took when I disassembled. I attached some I found online and believe it to be a VFD. On this one, It turns out the illumination color is by a colored thin plastic film on the panel. Illuminated without the panel and it is white. Very simple for me to experiment with colored translucent films cut old out and install desired film for desired color. The "Message Center" appears to be an LCD it illuminates 2 colors, orange for some advisements, red for others i.e. low battery. I would like to change the color to blue or maybe green when it lights up as part of normal starting and vehicle going thru its checks. Any thoughts you have on this would be greatly appreciated.

The other project revolves around installing an aftermarket car stereo. It has (1) auxiliary 3.5mm input audio source option on the back. I have more than 1 aux audio source I would like to use. The stereo also has an audio video 3.5mm jack. (4 contact points vs 3 on the stereo aux input. I've pinned out the correct wires and can use the audio video source for audio only and the audio plays just fine when I select audio video input from the source selector on the front of the radio... However the screen displays "No Signal" even though the audio source plays thru it just fine. I realize this is because it is receiving no video signal. What I am wondering is if there is a manner in which I could provide a static image of my choosing or creation to put on a thumb drive or other media, power it and feed it to the video side of the audio video input. So that when I select audio video input it will not display "No Signal" and would display an image while utilizing the other audio source to play music from. Thank you if you have any insight into this area.Thank you again Siana! for your detailed and lengthy reply and informationBrandon
