  • Lilliput hell

    After looking at some of the custom installs i decided to give it a go myself.

    i think i did a semi decent job but ended up with a white screen.

    so i sereched the forums and found that the common problem is the 40 pin ribbon

    I then managed to blow the small 1 amp fuse, but managed to replace it(soldered a 1 Amp fuse fire across it).

    After waiting for almost three weeks i got the ribbon cables from digitalww but odered the wrong ones. so i redodered the right ones and got them with-in a week (thanks armen).

    Still no luck with the white screen. after spending about three hours trying to reseat the damm cable i thinks its capoot. so if no ones got any ideas any one intrested in a possible fried lilliput or any one out there with some lilliput spares??????

    I have a TView and I had a similar issue.. with mine when I start the truck it turned white instantly.. even when the power buttons was not on.. however if I connected the vga cable to my PC it would work normal..

    something happened with my ground, so I connected my vga ground and auto ground line together.. works fine now.

    so maybe that will help

        yes.. my screen did the same as yours .. try grounding the VGA cable.. just touch the housing to a ground source.. that should do it..

              gose out of the window the moment you start gutting it, respraying it , bonding it with your dash , then again theres probably no harm in asking is there?????

              I got mine form ebay posted from hong kong. i dont think it would be worth my time chasing the guy and trying to expalin what ive done as his english is very limited (a lot worser than mine).

              i think im having a really **** week. i just recived a DVD/VCD/MP3 etc player this morning which was supposed to have Aux in (180 uk / almost $300 and its of ebay again) ive just emailed the guy expalining what aux in actually is and hes telling me to take to a professional. thank the lord for paypal! haa haa haa

              so any one with a cheap lilliput out there????

                it's got to be something simple.

                sometimes if I just take something like this apart .. and look it over.. I'll see a loose connection or a burned out component.. ya know..

                I wish I knew more about electronics other wise I'd buy it from ya and fix it..

                  I had the same problem. I figgited with trying to reseat the stupid thing for like 45 minutes, before I finally got it. The screen will display one of the following:

                  All white if the ribbon is not pluged in at all
                  Black w/ "no vga" or fuzzy black if the ribbon is seated improperly
                  good picture if properly seated.

                  The only way I found to seat it was to plug into the wall and plug into my spare PC and fidget til I got a desktop. Now, while taking it apart I screwed up the ribbons so I have to order those. AHHHHH.

                      This suggests he could just have the cable "upside down" in the connector(s). I think the conductors are only presented on one side of the cable end, so if you flip it over it might as well not be connected...

                          Any particular way you got the ribbon cable faster from DigitalWW the second time, I don't wanna wait 3 weeks. Also, anyone know, besides used, where I might be able to buy the part that the cable connects to on the screen, I tried emailing Lillput but i got MailerDemon!

                              Don't have a Lilliput, but had same problem with my no-name screen.

                              With mine, it seems to be a problem of turning the screen on after the computer is on, or before. If screen on before, then no problem, if screen on after the computer, then I get a white screen. Haven't installed in car yet, so don't know how it will do when hooked up to the PSU on the computer.
