What do I do now? Answered
Had an old laptop that had been rode hard and put away wet, given to me. It had a broken LCD, well I'm not one to just throw something away because it is broken, na, I visit "instructables.com" and find a use for it.
It was kind of neat to examine the LCD assembly. Question is, there are so many neat things in there and I don't have the foggest idea of what I can do with them. Items such as:
1. The backlight assembly, aprox 1/16 dia floresent lamp about 10" long with controlor board. How can you determine the voltage, input and output points and such. Sure would be a shame to "blow" this thing using the "by guess and by golly" method to make it work. My guess is it would make a neat light for a picture or something like that.
2. Two sheets of simi-opeic plastic which appear to be horzontial and vertical orienated somethings.
3. A plastic sheet with at least 34,542 dots on it (that's where I quit counting). This alone would make a good "dot-to-dot" playing board for some "very little people". Need a better idea of what to use it for.
Any ideas of something these items would be usefull for?
