  • 10.4in VGA LCDs 640x480 $75

    Hey all,

    I noticed this at [H] Forum, a guy has about 200 10.4in VGA LCDs he's offering them for $75.

    You have to be an [H] member to see the link, so register.

      You guys do know you can get 10.4" 18bit vga screens on ebay for $20??

      I think this seller has a few(won't ship to canada tho )

      /Unless this is for controller as well, then I want one!

        yeah i know that you can get a raw screen, but the guy on [H] is selling cased, ready to use, screens.

        all you do is plug in the ac adapter (included), plug in the vga cable from the computer (cable included), and your good to go. NO RCA connections though!

        you dont have to worry about getting a controller, inverter, and power supply. it is all included. plus they have built in stands and they have a pretty good picture.

              Actually, I won one of the 20 dollar ones off ebay (model # actually LQ104vdg11...nice screens..350 nits...used for bank terminals and medical use and such) and am waiting for it to come in...combined with inverter from http://www.milesie.co.uk/shop/asp/pr...duct=352&V=881 (its in the uk, ends up being around 65 bucks for the inverter)...waiting for this as well..let you know how it turns out...ill prolly sell it on ebay or here later any way, I also have a 12.1" screen coming in too.

                Yeah I got in and ordered one of these units. It almost sounds to good to be true, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

                  How can you power this baby up in your car?
                  Can you draw enough power from a psu?
                  And if so, how?
                  Coz i read that just have to plug em in a power outlet in the house.

                    i would think that it is an ac-dc wall plug, and that the output is either 12v or 5v, with probably only a couple amps of capacity on the plug. i would bet the screen only pulls a couple hundred mA.

                    i dont see why this wouldnt run on a STANDARD ATX supply, but on a sproggy or likewise, you might have a problem. you may have to rig up another higher current circuit.

                    without the power requirements it is really hard to say what wont or will run this screen.

                      Here are the power requirements

                      ______ 5v 2.5a
                      - - - - - -

                      ______ 12v
                      ---------- 1A

                        looks like you are going to need to make a seperate power supply for this screen.

                        i think a couple maxim chips and their associated circuits should be able to put out the power that you need for this thing.

                        a max787 will give you regulated 5V at up to 5A

                        a max1771 will give you regulated 12V at up to 2A

                        both the datasheets from www.maximic.com will give you a typical circuit design, that should be enough to slap something together to put out the power requirments of the screen in a 12V environment.

                        the 100% margin on the current capabilites should cover any spikes you might see...

                        ~mike

                        wait a minute.... are there 2 power supplies for this screen????
                        now im confused. i believe there is only one power jack on the casing, so only one voltage should be required for the screen to run.
                        anyway, those maxim chips should be enough to get started on the supply, if you need more current on the 12v for some reason, then put an identical 12v circuit in parallel and have a common input, output, and ground. that will double the available current on the output.

                          Would these lcd's work on the normal european electrical net?
                          Thats 220/240 volts instead of 110 in the us

                            They run on DC, it seems, so you'd just have to get a different adapter for it.
