arduino TFT LCD-2000-7775

I heard some persons said arduino LCD is the same as LED we usually use the same, try to use LCD this time to do a screen , it is very nice , I really like and the price is also cheaper than the LED , more surprising is that it can also add their own memory card to increase capacity.

Broken lcd?

I have what I think is a broken lcd. It doesn't have any black blotches though. It is a spiderweb crack but has color in it. Is the lcd broken? What else could be wrong? The specs on the tv are Shap aquos 32 1080i .

Transparent LCD's

Do all digital picture frames (eg http://www.edgetechcorp.com/accessories/digital-picture-frame.asp) have transparent LCD's? Like if you take it apart, could the LCD still work but it is transparent? So you could turn it into a projector with a very powerful light?Thanks!

Mini lcd's

Beginner Arduino Basic LCD + rotary encoders

New to Arduino, attempting to get basic programs working. Whats the best way to include multiple sensor readings to appear on a LCD Arduino screen for user feedback. So the sensor readout on the LCD would switch to the most recent change of rotation. Code to examine or help in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks

HELP NEEDED: LCD without circuit board

Greetings! A while back (roughly 5 years or so) I received an LCD monitor. A friend convinced me to use it in a case mod idea and naturally, we started on it. We both lost interest in the project and the parts sat around since. I came across my old LCD and decided to make a new mod out of it. However, I could not find the circuit board that the monitor plugs into. Nor could I find the power supply for it or the casing. Just the LCD screen itself. The LCD S/N: NA19020-500022 Manufacturer: Fujitsu (I Think?) My question to you guys is, could I plug in a circuit board from a different LCD screen into this one? or is this screen worthy of being sold for parts only? Here are some pictures of the LCD screen and it's components: yfrog.com/3iimg1291jjx Any any all help, suggestions, and comments are welcome!!

LCDs from electronic devices.

Dear fellow members. I have various LCDs from various devices (digital camera, mp3 players etc) that I wish to use. One has a 24 'pin' ribbon, another one is 20, and sure i have manny other ranges too. How can I get these bad boy's running? /experiment to find out which 'pin' does what? Is there any standards in regards to LCD displays? Unfortunatly, these displays don't have part numbers intact so i can't exactly look it up either. So basically i'm looking for a way to use an unknown LCD, or are they only fit for the bin? Thanks in advance, Luke.

LCD Monitor flashes primary colors

I have a nice 22" LCD monitor here, its a SCEPTRE X22WG-1080P, the monitor originally wouldn't get any signal at all. After opening it up & blowing it out, reseating all connections the monitor will turn on now, but it simply won't respond to anything. It flashes white, red, blue, green, black, etc in a repeating fashion. Anyone have a clue to what the problem is & maybe an instructable to fix it? Thanks!

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.

Voltage rail identification on LCD PCB

I am testing the DC rails coming off an LCD TV PSU so i can convert the unit to run off an ATX PSU. i have managed to find (labelled on the board) 12v, 12v, NC, GND, GND, GND, ?, ?  the last two aren't  labelled. the two pins (when tested to GND) are giving me -12v, could this be right? I'm guessing by this point ill just have to use the 12v rails, GND and -12v from the ATX to get this powered?  what else could those last two pins be?

Powering 12" - 17" LCD screen with a battery - possible?

Hi there - i had an idea for a project but am stuck on the techie details, hopefully someone can help! The idea involves a freestanding LCD monitor running on battery rather than plugged into a wall. ideally the the battery would be as small as possible and concealable. Also, i would like to strip the monitor of its casing and if possible connection to a computer and have it just display a single video clip on loop that would come from a source directly connected to the display - would anyone know how this could be achieved?? thanks in advance to any and all responses! PS i cannot use a tablet, for cost reasons and also i need the screen stripped so as to attach it to the final installation.

Suggestions for lamp

Hi I'm making a table lamp from the backlight of a broken 15" LCD, possibly putting some sort of an acetate print or photography slides where the LCD was to make it a bit more interesting and diffuse/colour the light.  However I'm stuck on how to house the light and hoping to get a few suggestions here.  Not sure whether I should box frame the whole thing, let the circuit board remain visible but covered (acrylic box) or perhaps put it into some sort of container upcycled however it will ultimately need to stand. How would you do this?  All and any suggests welcome. Thanks in advance Garrett

LCD Tablet Idea: NEED HELP!

Hey all, first time posting on this forum. I'm a skilled computer builder/all around good handyman with pretty much anything, and last night, i had a laptop laying around, so I decided to dismantle it. So cool, I took apart my first laptop, that was fun- but what to do now? Well, I mean, who doesn't want one of these? I mean, honestly, that would probably be the greatest thing I could ever own. Alas, I have a basic, $100 tablet from Genius. It's fine for my needs, although, probably not as accurate as some of the $300+ ones from Wacom, but I liked this one. It's very thin, and quite large (almost 14 inches diagonally). Anyway, if you haven't figured out where i'm going, I'll inform you. After disassembling every component of the display (which i believe was my mistake) and I put the guts of my tablet behind the last layer of the screen, closed it all back up, and wrote on it, and it worked fine as a tablet, but when I tried to hook it back up to the laptop and boot it, to see if the display worked, it booted once, didn't display anything, shut itself down, and that was the end of that. Now, I did a terrible job dismantling my first laptop, so I'm gonna make sure I do a good job with the next one, but I need to know what you guys think, if you could save me any troubles that I might face along the way, please help me! lol, also, I will update this with pics as I go through the process. Sorry, this post is just a culmination of ideas, and not so much a logical text.EDIT: I was kinda trying to combine THIS and THISSECOND EDIT: I came across another laptop, this one even older. I think I decided it's going to be a lot easier (and more practical) to do it with a LCD PC display, and not a laptop. Regardless, here is where I am right now, and I have a few questions:Can I take the actual screen apart? I did with the last one, so I know what the insides look like, I just don't know if I shoulda done that. Anyway, like I said, or I might not have, the tablet behind the screen works. I put it in as the very last layer inside the casing, before the final thin sheet of white plastic that is taped to t he back, and it worked just fine. I would like to do that again, but what must I do to ensure that the screen will work again? If you don't have the answers I seek, please refer me to a good forum that I can become a member of and get some good solid advice, because the internet does not have much information on this subject, I guess not many people try this?

HDMI from LCD connector

Hi, At work I have an ultrasonic testing instrument that displays the signal on an LCD (640x480). I also have a HUD (head mounted display) that requires a HDMI input. The only way I can think of getting the 2 working is to put a camera over the display and send that to the HUD. Would anyone know of a way to connect something to the LCD ribbon directly and convert it to HDMI? Many thanks for any help provided.

Nintendo DS TFT LCD Display mod's etc...

This is my first post here, though i have been visiting instructables for quite a while now. Anyway, straight to the point. I have been searching the web for LCD controllers and drivers for the better part of a year now. My hope was to find some web source that might give me some insight on how to reuse an old, but still functional, Nintendo DS TFT LCD display. My efforts thus far have been fruitless. I was hoping that someone with greater knowledge of LCD's and or LCD controllers might post an instructable on Finding/Building/Using a LCD controller. My ultimate goal here is to use the top LCD from the DS as a Heads Up Display/Widget Display for my PC. Hopefully connected via USB. Additionally, my dream would be to have a custom built tablet of sorts that uses the bottom LCD/Touch screen to control widgets and/or (insert media player of choice) via the touch screen. I know this is a rather daunting task, but really all i am hoping for is a little more information from those in the instructables community who have more knowledge on the subject than i do. Info on the LCD TFT LCD Display Manufacturer: Sharp or Hitachi (i'm not sure) Size: 3-Inch Resolution: 256 x 192

Mcbook LCD swap for 12inch

I am working on converting my macbook into a tablet PC, and I have everything pretty much figured out but...I was wondering if there is a way, or better yet, how i could swap the 13inch LCD with a smaller LCD.I have the LCD from a 12inch powerbook g4 on hand, and would like to use it instead of the standard 13inch screen.This will allow me more room to relocate things inside the tablet, as well as allow better fitting for everything.It will also help with the purchase of the touch screen as most touch panels I find are 12 or 15 inch.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

LCD with Ribbon Cable connecting to Webcam.

I am trying to build a device that will simply display a webcam on a LCD screen I pulled from a palm pad(or something similar) with a on-off switch. However I have no real knowledge of screens or cameras, the LCD has a 40 pin(if I counted right) ribbon cable, and a second ribbon with about 5 pins(the touch screen part?) and the webcam obviously uses a USB. How would I go about setting up the two with a battery and an on-off switch?
