Hey all. I'm planning on my first LCD hack and I have a burnt out Toshiba Satellite I'm planning on stripping the monitor from (just the memory slots are shot, the LCD is fine). I have a pin out of the controller (found here: http://www.avidia.com.tw/docs/product/LP156WH1-TLC1.pdf
) and understand the power wiring aspects, but had a few questions.
Firstly, I plan on building a 2 way or at least an interchangeable connector. The idea is to hook it up to a gaming console (360, PS3, Wii, ect.). Is this feasible or should I just stick to a single input.
If it is at all possible to put in a dual input I have a Monitor connector that is male on both ends (VGA), I'm planning on salvaging a matching connector from the same laptop's mainboard. The question here is what are the matching interface connections for a standard VGA connection (a pinout would be great if any one has one) and how do I connect the same rigging to an RGB connection?
Second, Pins 5, 20-30 are all blank on the connector ribbon. 20-30 are nothing, but the data sheet says pin 5 is a Self Test. Should I wire that up in any way?
Last, what kind of resistors/capacitors am I looking at picking up?
Thanks in advance guys!EDIT:
After looking at this image (http://www.theavguide.co.uk/AdvHTML_Upload/vgaplug3.jpg
) I came up with a simple table to try and help me out but wanted some confirmation (if any could give any) as to wither I was right or not.
LCD Pins VGA PIN
ODD 0- 1
ODD 0+ 11
ODD 1- 2
Odd 1+ 12
ODD 2- 3
Odd 2+ 13
ODD CLCKIN- 5
ODD CLCKIN+ 15
Am I any where near close?
