Converting a Laptop LCD into a Lightbox Answered
I've salvaged the LCD screen from an old laptop (an ASUS F3J). I wanna try to convert it into a lightbox (something like this http://www.x2jiggy.com/blog/2013/4/29/faulty-lcd-monitor-lightbox.html ).
My biggest problem is: I only have the screen and the inverter (so if I'm lucky I only have to power the inverter to light up the backlight of the screen) but I don't know the voltage needed by the inverter or where I have to solder the power plug.
I've found a tutorial http://www.technibble.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38262 but my inverter seem to miss the ground-vled-ledon-pwn copper pad for testing.
Here is an image of my inverter
Does anybody know how I can reuse my inverter for powering on the backligh of the LCD screen? Can I bypass the inverter powering directly the screen?
If possible I wanna avoid to buy or DIY a backlight tester https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhEGW46uCVc because I only need to light up one screen, I really don't need a full functional LCD screen tester kit.
Thanks in advance ^_^
PS: sorry for the bad english
