Old Smartphone LCD as Head Mounted Display? Answered
I've got an old HTC EVO 4G, otherwise known as the PC36100. I'm attempting to create a 1 to 1 display to connect directly to my computer for a cheap Head Mounted Disply. I've attempted to use various wireless RDPs. However, the lag while attempting to do ANYTHING is horrible. So I attempted to find an app that would connect directly to the phone via USB. I found two. Neither of which I feel comfortable dropping money on with such poor reviews and trials that don't work.
So finally, I decided why not just use the LCD directly. No messing with the hardware limitations of the phone at all. So I took the phone apart. I got right down to the LCD itself and found that it has a 17-pin input. But, I don't really know much about it beyond that. I can tell you that the cable reads:
C36_FPC REV A
I even have a picture of it. I think it's attached. If not, I'll fix that.
Essentially what I want to know is, what do I need to make it be a fully working LCD monitor for my computer. I know I'll need a module to convert the signal from what it is now to HDMI or VGA whatever the case may be. I also know I need power to the screen. But, beyond that, I don't know where to look. I've tried looking up the cable information, but I'm not getting great results. Any help in the matter, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
