instructable images not displaying

Hello, for the last couple of days images are not displaying when I'm on the instructable site. When I navagate down to the individual instructables the images are fine but no images display on the summary pages. I've tried Firefox and Safari on my Mac but both act the same way. I'm going to try from a PC and see if that works. This is annoying to say the least. \

email images not displaying

I'm not getting images in my Instructables newsletter emails. Almost all of them are broken except for the We're Hiring graphic. The links in the image placeholders work. But without the images I'm not inspired, so I don't bother to click and follow the link. I have no problem with any other emails from other websites. I'm using Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista. (Please don't suggest using a different email program.) I've added Instructables to my "Safe Sender" list and "Safe Domain" list. What's going on?

How to I display voltage on a 7 segment display?

Okay, I've never actually come across this before or needed to do this but now i come to it, i realise I am really lost to it. What i need to do is display a 3 digit (hundreds eg. 342) number on three 7 segment displays. So pretty much I just need a 3 digit voltage read-out to be incorporated into a portable design. I've been looking around and have come across the Analog to Digital converters, and understand how they work, but I'm not sure how to incorporate them or to put it to any use. So if anyone knows or has a schematic or any information I could work off, please help. :)ThanksPyroten

Laptop Display Upgrade to Touch?

I wish to upgrade my Laptop Display from Non Touch to Touch. I did a bit of research on the internet, but am unable to find a proper answer. Is it possible? I would love to migrate from half HD non touch display to full HD touch display (even IPS). But here in India, I'm unable to find it in this config for 15.6" size (atleast, not cheaply). I have found one display which has a few things common with my old display. Both have TFT with LED Backlight, same size, aspect ratio, resolution and no of pins. Old Display: 15.6 inch TFT with LED Backlight (Non touch) (16:9). Resolution: 1366 x 768. 40 Pins. Part Number: B156XW04V5 Datasheet: https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A20/A20-LCD15.6/resources/B156XW04V5.pdf Cost: ₹5000 ($75 approx) Proposed New Display: 15.6 inch TFT with LED Backlight (Touch) (16:9). Resolution: 1366 x 768. 40 Pins. Part Number: B156XTT01 Datasheet: http://www.datasheetspdf.com/datasheet/download.php?id=923648 Cost: ₹12500 ($180 approx) Would I need to change LVDS cable as well? Existing LVDS Cable: Part Number: P5LJ0 Datasheet: http://www.s-manuals.com/pdf/motherboard/compal/compal_la-7221p_r1.0_schematics.pdf Here are the answers to some questions you might have: 1. Laptop is Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG. 2. My Laptop did not have any variant with 1080p display or touch display. 3. The old display is slightly cracked. Hence I need to change it anyway. 4. The top flap, display mounting brackets and bezel are damaged too. And the laptop is 5 years old and am unable to get the replacement parts. Hence I am planning on building a new housing for the new display, in any case. (Suggestions in this regard are also welcome) So a bit of variation in physical dimensions is not a problem. 5. Motherboard is Intel i5 2410M with Intel 3000 graphics processor. Graphics Card is Nvidia 540M. (I couldn't find supported resolutions on official websites, but according to 3rd Party websites, both should support 1080p) 6. I have some experience with Electronic Disassembly and Assembly. 7. I can do soldering, but I'm not very good at it. Hence, would like to avoid it, if possible.

Neotech NT7086 display and arduino?

I found a couple of these older looking dot matrix LCDs in some electronic logbooks that didnt work. it was a 14 pin connector, so i figured why not try it out. i found the pinout of each pin using the chips that were on board, but i don`t know where to go from here, or if i should even bother. the display was made by or for hantronix, and they have a touch layer that could be used as well. each display has 7 of the NT7086PQ chips on it, a 74HC74D, a 74HC40103D, and an LM324. it was originally connected via a flat flex cable, but it had a convenient place for headers to plug it into a breadboard. the 74HC40103D is an 8-bit synchronous binary down counter: http://www.nxp.com/documents/data_sheet/74HC40103.pdf the 74HC74D is a Dual D-type flip-flop: http://www.mouser.com/ds/2/302/74HC_HCT74-225071.pdf the Neotech chips are LCD display drivers: http://www.crystalfontz.com/controllers/NT7086.pdf upon inspecting the physical properties of the display I can see there are the rubber/carbon edge contacts on two sides and a ribbon on one end. The pinout i figured out is: 14 is GND 13 is base on SOT23 transistor     (connected to 12 on parent board) 12 collector on a SOT23 transistor 11 gets pulled low at some point (pulled low on parent board) 10 is power 9 is cl2          (unactive high?) (on one set of neotech chips, assuming the edge contact drivers) 8 Clock input (74HC40103D) 7 does nothing 6 is d4 on one chip? 5 is display off  (active low) 4 is d4 3 is d3 2 is d2 1 is d1 So i would appreciate any input people have. I would ideally like to drive this using an arduino/atmega, and although i have not read the neotech datasheet to much depth it would appear to work similar to the popular parallel displays, but maybe with different syntaxes. so is this a possible thing, or is it a fruitless endeavor? thanks in advance.

acer gd235hz display problem

Hi there, I've got an acer gd235hz monitor, It's been working fine until one day It just died out.. It'll turn on, display the acer logo and turn off.

There not blown up like a balloon.  Should I replace them anyways?  Su'scon 1,000 uF 16 V http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/r571/scriptomania/IMG_0074_zpsgylrceow.jpg If so, What capacitor brand should I go for?

TheDunkis's Display and Request Thread

Alright I'm not saying I'm special enough that I should have my own little personal thread dedicated to what I do but...I'm lazy enough that I should have my own little personal thread dedicated to what I do. Why? Simply that. I'm lazy. I don't feel like making a thread/slide show for any new gun I make but I don't want to post it in some other random place. I also don't want to go around asking for ideas whenever I'm stuck. So to put it simple I'm going to display whatever current projects I have here and I'll also take requests. ~Current Project~ FKG (Folding K'nex Gun- Yes very original...) Alright I saw SK's FMG and I wanted to try one out myself. It didn't end up as pretty or as functional as SK's but it is compact and in a very early stage of design. I'm not sure what to do with it because it's at the point where I'll have to completely butcher it to improve it and then that would require whole new ideas on getting the parts that do work to keep working. So as said the only real big difference here is that it's more compact than SK's. Some other differences are -Held in place by a "grip" rather than a "bolt" -At the moment not rubber band loaded -Simpler trigger -Double hinge thingy for the stock to gun connection. So instead of a fixed pivot swing, two different areas rotate to move the stock from the very bottom to just behind the gun. Otherwise it was to fire dark greys with greens as well with a hopper but right now it doesn't work so well. I think the barrel has some friction in it from the way I set it up. I could loosen it up but I'm just going to redesign the gun anways. Should I continue? Or shall I try making a bolt action gun similar to Zak's (but different enough)? Or I'll try something completely new.

Use of enable on intelligent LED displays. Answered

I've found some early intelligent LED displays (datasheet here, I have confirmed I have the decimal-only variant) and have been trying to load digits onto them using the enable input. Currently, they will display whatever value is applied to the input pins when power is applied, but changing the value requires interrupting power to the display so it restarts with the new value. When enable is pulled to 0V, the display turns off and will not turn back on until enable has been released and the display has been restarted. The rise time of the power supply seems to be important in whether the display will start properly, as the display will usually not start without at least a10uF capacitor on the power supply.  Also, the decimal point is non functional. How do I get the decimal point and the enable input to work so that I don't have to switch the whole display on and off? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

electronic numeric display board for volleyball

I have searched the Internet hard for a reasonably priced electronic numeric display board to no avail.  I am interested in constructing a remote control scoreboard for volleyball similar to basketball scoreboards deployed in high schools.  For many years I have played and continue to play a LOT of drop in volleyball at various local Rec Centers.  It would be great to be able to keep track of the score with a remote control device in your pocket while playing the game. Alternatively please let me know of any high schools being torn down which could be an opportunity to save a basketball scoreboard that would otherwise be relegated to a land fill site. When you think about the utility of such a device, why hasn't this project been done before?  Maybe it has and if you have any info then PLEASE forward.   I would seriously entertain any posted price for such a completed device if it exists as the hero factor is huge.  The advantage of building it yourself is that you are in a position to manufacture duplicates for others and you become the repair man. The bigger the display board, the better.  I know they exist but are mostly cost prohibitive.  At this point I am prepared to start with a small display for the prototype in order to get this project started since I am very enthused.

Paid LCD Project

Hello instructables, I have an idea for a device but not the skill to build a prototype.  I am in need of someone with technical skill in microcontrollers and LCDs. The device I aim to create is basically an LCD watch or bracelet. Rather than time which is numerical, I need the watch to display words. It will be wearable on the wrist and therefore use a battery. No buttons or input are required for this project. I also don't need to make the case. I just need the working parts. I envision that this will require an LCD screen, a microcontroller chip, memory, and a battery for power. If you are interested, I will be happy to pay you for your help. If interested, please PM me so we can discuss what I am trying to make further. I am flexible on the design and hopefully it would be a fun and easy project a willing participant.  Again, I will pay for your time and components but this should also be a relatively fun and straightforward project for anyone who's worked with LCDs (e.g Nokia screens) and microcontrollers before. I look forward to hearing from you.  Take care.
