    Hi, Im a REAL noob at this, so ill ask my question quickly.

    What kind of plug is this, and are there adaptors I can purchase to connect it to DVI/VGA or TV-out(s-vid/composite) ?

    All I know is that it supplies power and data. I've done extensive searching and can't find anything like it....I'm assuming it's quite old..?...





    All help apreciated

      I couldn't find any information frmo the model numbers on the back of the LCD.

      But here you go.

      FA3350590
      TR-4LC2
      And the rest is in japanese
      Maybe someone here can read japanese, so here's a pic of the back.

      Sorry it's so blurry.

          Damn, this is the kind of gadgets I like to get my hands on!

          It is perfect for the hobbyist.

          If you are handy with a soldering iron and a multimeter, PM me and I'll give you some tips on how to figure out the inputs/outputs and power connections.

            I fonud out what kind of plug it was last night. Its an old Atari ST monitor plug.
            Heres the ST > VGA converter http://gem.win.co.nz/mb/atarihw/stvga.html

            And I'll need a DVI > VGA to go with it.

            Thank god because I couldn't be worse with a sodering iron.

            Thanks for all the help everyone. Hopefully there is a place in NZ that sells these ST>VGA adaptors.

            I'll post back soon with pics on how it runs.

                That may be the same connector, but that adapter is not gonna do **** for you.

                    It's highly unlikely that LCD has the same pinout as the ST, even if it does use the same connector.

                      I have guides that show me how to convert the Atari ST monitor cable into SCART and VGA. (however I have no soldering skills)
                      All the lines carry certain signals which seem easily rerouted.

                      Are you telling me this because you know or because you *think*? It all seems pretty pessimistic to me.

                          Here's some of the inner workers. There is another connector inside which may look familiar to somebody.

                            I don't think that ST->VGA adaptor will work at all as you are going in the wrong direction.

                            That adaptor allows a video source that originates from a ST style output to be plugged into a standard analog VGA monitor. What you are trying to achieve is the opposite i.e take a std vga output and connect it up to a monitor that accepts an ST style monitor input
