    Wanted: 40pin Hirose for 12.1" Comtec LCD

    I am taking a gamble here. My LCD has all of a sudden ceased working. I think it has to do with the hirose.

    Because of this, i am after a replacement.

    It is a 40 Pin version (unlike the standard 31 pin type).

    If anyone has got one, could you please let me know.

    cheers

    Ian,

    I might be able to help you but need more detail.

    what type of connector is on each end?

    what is the pin out?

    anything else special about your cable?

    check out his thread in displays.... something about 12.1 lcd not working or something like that. anyway, the one side is a 20x2 (i dont know the dimensions) and the other end is a connection that looks like a 31 pin hirose, but you can count the holes in the connector and it is actually a 41 pin connection on that end.

    Oh Bummer, than I probably can;t help him. If he needed a 40 pin on each end I might have been able to do something.

    Sorry Ian!

    Thanks mp3z24 for the explaination. And thanks pigseye for the offer. Has anyone seen a cable like the one mentioned in my post in the LCD/Display section?

    okay, from what it looks like.... the 41 pin connector seems to be a 41-pin df9 receptacl (part number H2161-ND on digikey.com) pretty standard stuff.... the 20x2 connector looks like a special connector because of the alignment notches in the picture from your other thread (possibly H2234-ND on digikey)

    i cant confirm these parts will be correct for you since i cant measure the overall dimensions nor can i measure the pin spacing. so that might be something for you to do yourself...

    also, if these parts are the correct size, they are extremely dificult to solder wires to. the spacing is extremely tight and you might not be able to solder it yourself. i know there was a group buy that was going on in the for sale section for hirose cables, perhaps you can see if they can have this one made for you as part of the group buy. also, there are a couple cable comanies online that will make u a custom cable, however, the cost might be something like $75. kinda pricey, but still cheaper than buying another LCD!

    best of luck!

    Thanks heaps for the info! Bloody champion. You are right $75 is pricey and i assume that is US (i'm in the Oz). I am wondering whether it would really be worth it, i mean it wouldn't garauntee it to work either!

    To be honest, It's a real ***** that it broke in the first place. The $260AU i could have saved would have allowed me to pay my rego today (seeing as it is due today) but now i will have a car out of rego until i can come up with the dough!

    Lifes a *****......then you marry one!
