  • 2008 Lilliput 619 Parts!!!

    Hey folks. So I got my 619 back in February of this year and its been sitting for a while waiting to be installed in my dash. I've been working the kinks out of my carputer and finally thought it'd be about time to do a test run. I already had the screen disassembled and ready to drop in a double din housing (either a bybyte or the nice metal Subaru ones, but for now I was just cardboard/MDFing it). Turned everything on, played with the settings a bit and all of a sudden I smell electric burn! So I unplug the Lilliput and then the carpc. I'm looking at the board of the Lilliput (where I smell the smoke) and can't see any physical problems... I touch one area on the board where I feel heat coming from and give myself a 2nd degree burn ( anyone?). After tending to that, I let a fan run on the board to cool it down. After an hour or so, its at room temp, I plug it in and it flickers on with no problem. Its not heating up, but WAIT! The touch no longer works... So I'm stuck with a screen that only displays, but has no interaction, minus my wireless mouse...

    After grumbling about that for a bit, I decide to grab my multimeter and test some caps and resistors, see if I can't trace down the short or what not. I figured it to be the U11 resistor (if anyone is familiar). Well I go to start the screen up again and it won't turn on when plugged in. The power/led strip doesn't light up and I get nothing from my PC or other PC's I tested it on.

    So at this point, I'm sure the board is dead, and probably beyond repair. I called and emailed Lilliput to see about purchasing a replacement board, they haven't gotten back to me quite yet. Does ANYONE know anything about these shorting out this way? Anyone have a wiring schem, so I can run down and try to chase it? Does anyone have a spare board they'd like to sell? Does anyone have any advice whatsoever?

    Thank you Mp3car forum readers and posters! Any and all help is always greatly appreciated!
