Hi guys I decided to make a new thread to add pics and an update.
So today I went back to the car shop and took back my car, I am kinda happy that I didn't let them finish my install (need a larger screen to come in) because these guys were driving me crazy.
I paid $172.34 shipped from (http://www.mo-co-so.com/Lilliput-669...i.htm?CartID=1) about a month ago. I brought my car to a shop, they ripped apart my whole dash (I took the lcd out of its casing so they can mount it) when I bring it there I find out the hard way I dont have a 7" screen I have 8" screen. They were going to try to fit it by making a bezel, after thinking about it I figured it would be best to just sell this and order a 8" instead. I get the lcd and my car back today (giant hole in my dash lol). They told me they noticed the ribbon cable from the glass was torn, so I ordered (http://www.mo-co-so.com/Touch-Screen...-rts-669-4.htm) and they put it back on for me. Something isn't right with the monitor, when I power it up it goes to a white screen (no OSD) because of this I am selling it as is, It might be a cheap to $0 fix. I am including all pics below.

I am only asking $75+shipping (actual shipping, whichever service you prefer usps, ups, fedex) Easy way to save about $100. To be fair its first to pay gets dibs.
Sounds like the shop did more than tear the touch panel ribbon.
White screen means one of two things. LCD is dead, or the LCD controller is bad.
Either way you are looking at 75+ to fix it.
More so than that, your post seems a bit confusing.
First you say "when I bring it there I find out the hard way I don't have a 7" screen I have 8" screen."
Then you say "I figured it would be best to just sell this and order a 8" instead"
You do have a 7" screen. Are you saying you thought you bought an 8" but really bought a 7"?
I'm willing to give you 50 shipped for the whole thing, cables, power supply, etc.
As for what I meant, I meant to say the screen that was in my car that I was replacing (it broke after 3years) was an 8", I thought it was 7", so I ordered this 7" screen only to find out it was smaller then the screen I originally had in my car. So I need a 8" screen now. If that makes sense
No longer available, due to the fact that bsimmons71 turned out to be a douchebag and ripped me off and stole my screen.
That sucks! I see they were a new member. I think next time some other form of validation should take place, i.e. other forums, paypal email adrress, ebay feedback. Doing online transactions is always a crap shoot. Please don't let 1 bad apple spoil your outlook on life, karma will come around someday for you and for him. SNO
Karma! May Karma will all douchebag traders melt down all the wiring in their dash with their ill gotten gains! Oh... That's harsh!
SNOtwistR & rray, I hear you. I trusted him which was stupid on my part lesson learned. Not sure why anyone would go out of their way to steal a $75 broken screen. It will come back around to him I am sure, all for a measly $75
