  • DennisK LCD screen problems

    OK, I finally hooked up my DennisK LCD kit, and nothing happens. The screen stays black, the OSD buttons don't do anything.

    For the other peopel that got this kit, what did you have to do to get it working? Were all the jumpers set correctly from the factory? Can someone snap a pic of their controller card so I can see the jumper settings?

    Thanks,

    assuming you have all the cables hooked up the right way....

    the jumpers were correct from the factory...

    did you hook up the power connection the right way? the pin should be 12 v and the sleeve should be ground....

    press and hold the on/off buttton onthe osd for 3 seconds... that should turn on the screen... if you have the led hooked up, it will remain off until you hold the on/off switch for the 3 seconds, then it will go to orange, and it will be green when the screen is operating.

    also, you should do the hirose cable fix. change the wiring so that it pulls the info from the higher number data signals... there is a thread in the lcd forum about it...

      On/Off button.... hmm, maybe that is the problem... I thought that was for the OSD, I didn't realize it was for the screen.

      Wow, I feel dumb now. Hopefully it will work fine when I get home.

      Thanks a bunch,

        hehehe

        i had the same reaction when i hooked mine up....
        hit the power supply switch....
        i just stared at the screen for a sec and swore loudly....
        then a flash of genius...
        try the on/off button.

        works like a dream, just remember to set the resolution on the computer to 800x600 or maybe the resolution one setting smaller than that..
        that also made me swear a bit, since my computer was running a HUGE desktop size and the lcd was fuzzy, and grainy, and looked like it had some crazy electronic interferance going on... then after changing the desktop size.... beautiful!!

        enjoy
