    Quick power question

    Hey,

    Just quickly, on the power jack for the lilput screen one of the wires has a white stripe going the length of it.. Is this the positive or negative wire?

    Thanks

    Dan

    Do you (or anyone) really want to make an electrical mod based on "I think it's positive"? I wouldn't....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I do have a voltmeter but can't check as I fried the wire, its all melted including the egg..

    Anyway, found out the one with the stripe is positive.

    I have no idea Tiddler. Still not worked that one out.

    I cut the connector off the egg and have extended the wires to plug into a molex on the power supply and it now works fine.
