  • Houston Lilliput owners, Please Read!!

    My 7" Lilliput (619) monitor has been working almost flawlessly since I put it in my truck, but somehow it got switched over to composite input and I cant get my VGA to show back up. I left the remote and the keypad where I am stationed and cant get to it for another 2 1/2 weeks, so does anybody have a keypad/ribbon cable that I could borrow/buy (I should only need it for about 5 mins) and I am willing to drive to you.
    It works!!

    Almost all of the time too!

      Hehe that happened to me last week.

      luckily the cable is still connected and I keep the button board in the car, however it meant I had to undo half the dash to get to it.

      Time to connect the IR methinks.

        yeah, I feel like an idiot for not bringing it, but I cant figure out why or how it switched if I didnt hit the button or anything like that...

        I NEEEEEEEED to find one of these dang things to plug in, I have a 14 hour road trip coming up and I dont want my IPOD to be my media device
        It works!!

          Well isn't there a thread with a hack for the auto-switch lilliput for backup cams and such? Then you can find which traces are the video mode, and "push" them with shorting the contacts. You can get to the main circuit board can't you?

            all the posts that I have seen come off the basis that you hack your keypad up and use it... I dont have one

            Could anybody tell me what traces to short? that would work as well

            thanks

                Thanks, its not so much the remote, its the keypad and cable that im needing. All I want to do is plug the dang thing in, hit PC/AV and then be done with it.

                  Ok, well I found the thread: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/lcd-...tml#post797954

                  It is connected to the main board, not the button panel. So you should be able to use that thread.

                    Yeah, Ive seen that, but it works off the remote or keypad, he only solders a sensor line to the main PCB so that it will stop switching when it detects that its in vga.

                    Unless I completely missed something

                      Now i understand. Seems i won't be be able to help since my button board is epoxied to my dash bezel.

                        Thanks for the thought anyways but I GOT IT!!!

                        I found somebody who mapped out the pins and had pictures to go with it, but the pic links were broken, I improvised it and its working again!

                        Thanks Toaster, that all knowing badger pointed me in the right way., I poked around a bit and found the page: http://web.archive.org/web/200410192...lliputLCD.html

                        The picture links are dead but you can generally figure out what view hes talking about.. If anybody else needs to know where, I can take a picture of mine and post it.
                        It works!!

                          Well mine did it when I did a key to ACC - off then back to ACC agin with a ver yshort gap in between. It has heppened once but it must be a specific gap time as I do that sort of thing once or twice a week and it doesn't do it then.

                            That MAY be what did it for me too... I guess Ill have to be carefull to keep from ripping apart my dash just to reset it.

                            I think that imma be installing my IR and button panel behind the dash just in case :-D
