    Question Power supply for Sharp 6"?

    What I'm trying to find is ideas that have been made for building a power supply for the 6" Sharp LCD into a car mp3 player. I have been over at <a href="http://www.ryanspc.com">Ryan'sPC</a> which is where I got the idea in the first place, and to other places, however, I've not been able to see some good plans on building the power supply for one. Any help is appreciated.
    CarMP3 system:
    200mhz, 20gb hotswapable drive, 128mb, Winamp w/full-screen vizes, (upgrading to WinAmp3 in near future), 5" LCD screen, controled by numberpad, Sproggy PS under construction, custom mounting case under construction.

    I used your schematic for my power supply. Thanks for putting the info out there. I had most of my problems figuring out what pin was what on the EIO cable.

    Digikey has the inverters in a potted version ($16) now. Its pretty small and reduces the chance of frying yourself.

    I do have one question. Did you have to hook the shield from the video source up to ground to get a picture. I wasn't getting anything until I tied it in.

    Yes, you do have to connect the shield of the video cable to the Sharp 6" LCD -- the LCD and video source both need a common ground to complete the circuit for the signal.
