MPJA 40x4 only $7.95 ? say what?!?
How come MPJA has 40x4 LCD's for only $7.95 ????? The cheapest i have seen other than this is Timeline and EIO (and theirs is $20!!!)
Is this MPJA LCD as good as the others??? $7.95 is stinkin' cheap!
I don't know anything about it, but can you tell me where to get it?
<blockquote>the MPJA LCD 40x4 is as good as any other except it is a little bit bigger in size than the TIMELINE. also it does not come with backlight and no data for the pins out. I have the pins out for this LCD. If anyone need a hook up on this let me know. I can post the pins out up here. I need to find a place that sell cheap backlight for this lcd. anyone here know where to buy the backlight for this ?
the site for this lcd is http://www.mpja.com
Noproblem: Are the actual characters larger than normal or is the whole unit just generally larger than normal??
By the way, you can make your own backlight for it (one of those EL backlights). I forget which one, but i remember one mp3car site explaining how to put a cool blue EL backlight in an LCD. It looked sweet! but i think it'd be a ton of work. BUT CHEAPER than getting a pre-installed backlighted LCD.
the lcd unit is bigger. the character is the same i think.
EL backlight require too much of circuitry like the dc to ac voltage gain and so on. I just like to get the normal blackligt
