    Where'd you get that LCD? How much was it? I'd really like to get something like that one.

          got it from a friend.. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem?

            ok, I have the same exact screen, but I recieved a control with it. The control is basically a small pushpad with a very thin ribbon cable. The cable attaches to the LCD and by using the controller pad, you can adjust the brightness, screen placement, etc. By the sound of things, I suspect you never got this controller pad.

              Yup no controler. just the ribbon cable with the little medal prongs at the end..

              so what your saying is im screwed...
              Any other ideas?

                Can you take a picture of the controller may be simply switches hooked up to the cable. You could make your own.
