  • Need help powering this Screen

    Hi all, I used to post here in highschool, god knows what my username was....

    Anyway, I recently got a screen for $100, which is a steal here in Australia (normally around $250 after shipping).

    The catch is it doesnt have a wiring loom for the power.

    That is the screen. It used to be very common so hopefully someone can tell me the pinout for the power connector.

    Thanks all, I really appreciate any help.

    Specs would help....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      specs?

      It has no writing whatsoever on the outside.

      Its a 7" single din motorized touch screen.

      The only non-schematic writing on the mainboard is "po7oia-M"

      It has VGA, 2 Composite, and a USB input. It also has a remote IR reciever on the front, but thats on a daughter board so I dont know if its actually active.

      The board has a spot for a TV tuner which is not installed.

      Thats about all I can tell you.

          :O

          you're right!

          http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Produc...C=1257&ID=1481

          Its identical to one of those but no branding on it.

          Assume its the same internals too? Anyone have the pinout for the power for these>?

            Did you even bother to read the specs in the link you provided?
            It specifies the power requirements right there.

              Yeah, but not into which pin. Its a 6 pin connector. I dont wanna put positive into the ground.

                It looks like only 3 pins are populated in the 6 pin power cable shown in the user's manual. (on thermaltake's site for the a2314)

                Should be top 2 from left to right, and bottom 1 left.

                (It was a bw pic, so I couldn't say for sure what was hot, but my guess was pins 1,3)

                If you have a DVOM, you can check the pins for continuity to the chassis, thereby locating ground. The other(s) will be 12v DC.

                  I dont unfortunately, otherwise I would have checked.
                  I know most of the theory just dont hav the tools.

                  Someone on here MUST own a thermaltake screen (or one of these clones)

                    OK, well like they say, you can't help those who won't help themselves.
                    I would suggest picking up a cheapo meter. They can be had for less than 10.00.

                      Judging by the proportion of the screen to that girls hand with the stylus, that thing looks way bigger than 7"!

                      lol

                          Thank you so very very much.

                          Now all i need to do is go down to jaycar and grab a simple wiring loom and i'm good to go.

                          I really appreciate it!

                          What is the point of the ACCesory wire?

                          Sorry I cant help with the blinking problem, if you need any other help though let me know!

                              The ACC is connected to an Accessory or Key On power line in a car.
                              This acts as a trigger, preventing the unit from staying on while the car is not running. Key Off = Monitor Off. Avoids a dead battery in the morning.
