How to find datasheet for Sony camera LCD display? Answered

Hello all.

I have two broken Sony W5 cameras here and would like to use their displays in my microcontrolled projects.

It seems, however, that it is impossible to find out anything in the internet about the controller inside it or the pinout of the device.

Is there any way of finding such info? Please, point me to it.

Thank you.


In general, LCD displays are fairly custom and proprietary. Many people have asked about how to do what you're describing (you can easily search for "LCD" here at I'bles) and it is effectively impossible. Just another example of "locked technology" :-(

Somebody as big as Sony will probably not be using "off the shelf" parts, but fully custom designs, so I think you migth struggle.
