  • I have seen RGB LED Strips, but I have no idea how to integrate that to work with the Inverter. Would I just have to keep them separate?

  • No, that is not what I wrote, I do not have a transflector in use, and no I didn't remove the fton polarizer and placed it on the back one. The TN display I have has 2 polarizers, one on the front of the display, and one at the rear of the display. Between these 2 polarizers is where the light is limited between.

    I had removed both the front and back polarizer films on another TN LCD display, without damaging the LCD display, but still don't know where to add the reflective film, as all that is left is the LCD display which seems to be made up of 2 layers.Yes, those sheets of diffused white plastic absorb and disperse light evenly, and by using those sheets you can see the LCD screen in broad daylight just like it has a backlight. It looks identical to a backlit screen.The only problem with that is, on a bright sunny day, the screen is so bright, that it causes your eyes to bleed. It really hurts. Yes, I've tried it already, and it isn't feasible. It's like having a backlight the equivalent strength of the sun.Do you have any other ideas in regards to making a reflective display like the GBA?

Nintendo has stated that their reflective displays were cheap to make, so they used them, while other people say that reflective displays or even transflective displays are expensive to make, which I don't believe to be true.

    Yes, of course. Even if I hold it up to sunlight, the screen is visible as normal. I just don't know how to make it reflective like the GBA screen. I tried adding a mirror behind the rear polarizer, but nothing is reflected. I must be missing a crucial point that I just don't know about.Is the mirror supposed to be behind the rear polarizer, or sandwhiched between the actual TN LCD screen?

    Yes, I already tried that, and yes I did manage to short it out, and now one of my green chip thingies does not work anymore. The Aluminum foil seems to reflect light, but not sufficiently to make anything on the screen readable, when compared to one of my Transflective displays (which has the backlight off). I'm thinking of just opening up one of my Transflective LCD displays, because I still don't quite understand how light reflection works, and seeing exactly how it works. If I manage to find out how it works, and if it is doable, I may be able to swap out the Transflective film with a Reflective film, so it reflects all ambient light. Or better yet, just convert a regular Transmissive LCD to a Reflective LCD.
