  • Found this on ebay... need help on how to get it running

    what's involved in getting this to work? touch screen and all?

    You're going to need a controller for it, which are not cheap. Using bare LCDs is probably a Top 3 question on this board, so you should be able to find the gory details with little problem. Short answer, it's most likely not worth it, you're better off with a complete kit.

          Check with the seller. He sells these constantly, sometimes with controllers, sometimes without. I'm sure he can tell you which one you'll need. Probably even sell you one.

          BTW, the screen doesn't appear to be very good. 640x480, 4096colors. I don't remember what the brightness is but I recall it was pretty low.

              I saw the same item and asked what was included and needed to get it to work.
              This was his response email.

              Thanks for the inquiry. This is a panel with the touchscreen attached. I
              have the VGA controller, hirose cable, inverter and cable for $175
              delivered. THe touch contrioller is available from any good supplier or
              from www.earthlcd.com
              Hope this helps.

              Thanks!!!

                hmm... i think i've got enough on my plate putting this carPC together... i'd just frustrate the heck outta myself if i had to put together a TS LCD and not have it work. Thanks for sharing the info

                  This looks like the DennisK kit offered way back in the beginning of LCD installs. It's a decent screen, except for the 12 bit (4096) color. It may not be acceptable (depending on the person viewing) for video playback. It's ok for most everything else. The panel used was the LQ9D161...you may want to ask him which panel he's currently using.

                      I thought it looked familiar
