    Lilliput Works On AC But Not On DC??

    I have my carputer up and running, but my Lilliput won't work. It works fine inside and I've even taken an extension cord to the car and used the AC plug and it boots up and works flawlessly. It will not work in the car and this boggles me because there's no reason it shouldn't work. I've had it connected to the regulated 12V on the Opus 320 and come to find out that's a bad wire and doesn't work. I've tried hooking it to the ignition wire on my radio and all that does is blow a fuse. I've even tried hooking it up to the constant 12V on my radio harness and all that did was smoke the wires, literally. Luckily no harm was done to my screen and still works fine, but ONLY on AC.

    Can anyone make any sense of this? Any help is GREATLY appreciated so I can drive the car and see it all work!

    Have you measured the voltage on the line you're using to power the LCD to insure it is providing 12vDC when the PSU is on?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Yep did that on all instances, all had what it needed. I just tried to run a wire from the empty IGN spot on the fuse box to the LCD and it blew the gauge fuse (10A).

    The AC power adapter says it's good for 1.5A, so I know when I connected it to the radio constant power (uses 15A) and since there's not radio it had plenty of current to supply it. Only thing it did there was smoke the wires.

    This is so weird and it should without a doubt work, yet it doesn't. I'm oh so close to being able to drive with the carputer, after I get this solved pop it in the dash and I'm good as gold!

    I just got done trying to hook it up to the ign power on the factory headunit harness. As soon as I did, no popped fuse but saw smoke from the middle of the screen (not the control board). Immediately unplugged it and brought it inside and hooked it up to the AC plug again. Now I can see teh CCFL light up and just a blank image, no blue screen like before with words "NO INPUT" on it. I'm assuming I fried the control board and all is lost. DAMN.

    I really think that there was something wrong with the display anyways, but being as I voided warranty when I opened up the casing I guess I was kinda screwed anyways. In hindsight I guess I should have checked to verify it worked in the car before disassembling it?

    And just for reference this was a EBY701 display. I guess saving money might not be all it's cracked up to be.

    Anyone have any input on this before I buy another since I'm SO CLOSE to having it all done?
