Repurpose a TFT Display with 50 pin FPC Answered


I have recovered a LCD TFT display from an old smart meter. And I would like to recycle it in a new project in my Arduino.

The problem I am faced with is that I don't know very well how to connect it to my breadboard/Arduino.

I have found a couple of relatively cheap options but I thought best to double check before spending money on something I might not need.

"Socket" https://www.adafruit.com/product/1773

PCB: https://www.adafruit.com/product/1492

attached are pictures of the display in question.

This would require a bit fancy soldering which I think I should manage to do without melting the pcb.

however If anyone can suggest a simpler way, (or if thi is completely wrong).

thanks everyone.
