    DennisK system... need some help please?

    I have a few simple questions:

    1) What size is the plus needed to put power into the VGA board? I have a 2.1mm plug for the cable, but 2.1 doesn't fit into the board...

    2) What gauge wire should be used to solder into the board to send power to the touchscreen controller cable?

    3) Which way does the connector go on the touchscreen control board? It's a black connector and it can be plugged in 2 ways. Which way is right? There's an arrow on one side...

    I searched for some answers but I didn't find anything... Can someone help me please??????

    1) Take the vga board to either Radio shack, or your local electronics supply store, adn test out the plugs they have there. You should be able to find the appropriate one.

    2) No idea what you are talking about.

    3) An arrow on a connector generally means that that pin should be connected to pin #1 on the connector. Look at the connectors for similar arrows, or a red wire, or a wire that is different then the others. If the connector is mounted on a circuit board, look at the board to see if the pins or wires are numbers, or perhaps have an arrow there as well.

    More info on #2:
    There is a cable that goes from the touchscreen controller board to the back of the carputer for the mouse. It needs 5 volts of power and that can come from the VGA controller board. I tried using 20 gauge wire, but it was too thick. I was wondering if anyone had done this already and what gauge wire they used...

    3) Unfortunately there are no markings on the board that tell me which way the plug connects. On the board, the pins stick up and then they all bend 90 degrees. The arrow can either face up, or down towards the board depending on which way you decide to plug it in. Can someone tell me for sure which way it goes?

    Well, the cable that goes to the back of the carputer/ps2 port and the VGA board should have 5 volts on it already. Is there a particular reason that you want to take the 5 volts from the VGA board? I am not familiar with this unit though.

    As for 3, wish I had more advice for you.

    The directions show a 5.0 x 2.1 plug with 5 volts of power to connect into the touchscreen controller cable. I spoke with the creator of this system and he said it's required, and the 5 volts can be drawn from the VGA controller board. The holes are tiny in the board for the 5 volts so I was wondering what gauge wire people used.

    I did ask him about the black plug, but unfortunately he didn't have an answer for me.

    It most likely isn't drawing much current through that wire. Something that fits the hole should work fine. Just keep the lenth as short as possible. Something like a 24gauge wire should work fine.

    Ok, almost everything is done. The soldering on the VGA board was really rough, but I got it. Got the right connector from the Shack.

    All I need is for someone with this system to tell me how to plug that touchscreen into the touchscreen controller board. It's a black plug that goes into pins that stick out of the board. But which way does it go??? It fits on both ways! Please, can someone help me???

    I'll have to look on mine later. The black connector has a very small arrow on it, but I can't remember which side it goes to.

    Yes, all I need to know is where the arrow is supposed to be located... Then I'm all done....

    Did you get a chance to look yet?
