  • Convert 8" to 7" Lilliput

    Hi all,

    I've got an 8" lilliput from 2003 or so. My next project needs a 7" screen to fit into a double din.

    Would it be cost effective to replace the touch panel and lcd on my screen with 7" versions? Or would the cost involved not be justifiable?

    Hope that makes sense

    Thanks

    James

    i think it would probably be better to get a complete 7" instead of taking the risk on the 8" controller not working with the 7" panel..

      Most likely a monitor that old is CCFL and the control board is going to reflect that. It will not work/be worth the time to get a CCFL board to work with a LED panel.

        You won't be able to use an 8" Lilliput controller from 2003 to drive a current 7" LCD panel and touch screen. The interface is different.
        Plus, you would need an LED driver for the back lights on the newer LCD.
