When hooking LCD monitor back up after it is placed on the overhead, how do you hook it back up? Answered

Do we stil need the backlight and if so where does it get placed and where/what other cables need to be used and where do they go?


well if your using a smart board no but if its coming out of a projector so i would say hook the usb cable if there is one it should have a little design on it hook it into the projection screen.

By using an lcd on an overhead projector - you eliminate the backlight (now you're using the projector). The LCD should be see-thru, showing your image. You need whatever wires went to the monitor originally, and you might need to reroute some wires. Some monitors have the backlight inverter and lcd video controller on the same board, some do not - you'll need the video part.
