    where did you get them for $25 and who makes the LCD, and how good is it??

    you might want to check out flat-panel to see if they can help you, or check on eBay or just do a google search for the model number of it.

    Earthlcd.com has taken over flat-panel.com
    As for the price from the controller i looked at this page: http://www.flat-panel.com/faq4lu4e.htm and at the bottum of the page u see what i mean.

    Woot! Just got my screen, now I got to figure-out how to hook it up

    Earth lcd has this schematic for the converter board http://earthlcd.com/cnt4lu4e.pdf .

    The only thing I'm not famillar with is the IC(?-JP3). Is this something I can get from radioshack?
    And the powersupply, is there somewhere I can buy that cheap? Easy to make?

    Can't wait to get this going

    Hello g60
    jp3 is a connector/header 13x2
    not a ic.
    Let me know when it works.

    Ok, this header, is it just to connect the red, green, blue, and c-sync to ground?
    I guess it's not really needed

    I just need to find out what the values for the resitors and caps on the power supply are, and find some small ribbon cable.

    This header is for connectin the lcd to the motherboard if it has a lcd controller on board.

    Let me know if you find the values of the components.
