    ok...before i started doing my own installs, i had a "buddy" of mine help me out. I was trying to install an lcd in the dash of my gf's car. i know the monitor worked, but when he was soldering on a connection for the rca connectors, the screen stopped working. Its a brand new 7" screen that I would love to make work, but i don't know anything about the electronics of it.
    i was going to send it in for service, but it is just a bare lcd without the case, and it doesn't have a name on it. can anyone point me in the right direction to get this working?

    if need be, i could post pics of the back of the board. thanks in advance.

    lol, love the quotes on 'buddy'.

    where was he soldering them on? the LCD controller board? or hard-wiring the cables? You make it sound like the screen was on during the soldering. is this so?
    pictures may help. or at least a model number/brand of screen

        I don't know to be sure. I'll get some pics later and hopefully someone can help me out. I don't know if the screen was on WHILE he was soldering, or when he powered it on after, it came on and went out.
