  • Reuse 3.5" tft of pda: how to?

    Can anyone help me?
    I have a damaged Toshiba e310, but the tft display is ok.

    I like to reuse it

    Anyone know the pinout or an interface to use him with a normal pc?

    I would say there's a one in a million chance you'll be able to use it... if that.
    designers of PDA's have to make them as inexpensive as possible, and using a VGA interface to the LCD screen, instead of a direct proprietary interface would NOT be economical... if it were easy, tons of people would have done it already. Unfortunately, (and for some reason surprising to a lot of people) most electronics can't be interfaced to a completely different system just by soldering on some different wires. There are a few exceptions, like the PSONE screens, but for the most part, you're screwed.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:
