    replacement screen for lilliput 629

    I broke the lcd of the lilliput 629. The screen itself is not crack but the lcd has lines when I turn it on. Where can I buy the replacement for this part?

    Below is the whole story of my ordeal posted in acurazine

    Once upon a time a boy from the Bronx decided to install a car pc on his Acura TL 2006 White Diamond Pearl. He created an awesome picture on his head about the way everything would turn out. He embarqued on the journey of sleeping late to read the various forums related to carpc and audio. His attraction to the project was so strong that he even went late to work several times because of lack of sleep. *Tires squeeling* STOP *breathing increadibly hard, heart out of mouth, held with the teeth* to be continued...

    Yesterday I tried to install my carpc and audio system. Spent several hours just extending the stock LCD cables and ac cables. Everything was going great until I started assambling all the components. When I isntalled the touchscreen monitor I realized I had not setup the auto on feature in the touchscreen so I tried to remove the monitor off the bezel but guess what? I hot glue it. I didn't know how to hold in place any other way. In the process of fixing the touchscreen to the bezel I also completly cut the metal housing that held the stock LCD, therefore I couldn't bolt it on smoothly on the dash, however I used the air vents thing and two screws from the radio to temporarily hold it in place. Anyways, after finally removing the touchscreen I turn it on but no picture from the rear view camera, just some straight lines in the middle so hmm what could be wrong I thought? I grabed a RCA cable coming from the tv box in the shop and hooked it up but the same thing and then it hit me, I broke the screen in the process of removing it from the bezel (**** **** **** **** **** ****), took a deep breath and created a picture of me removing $250 off my bank account again, breathed again and I was cool, not really. Now since that was a no go I then followed to install the stock LCD below the radio. After connecting all the cables the screen doesn't show anything, I double check ALL those cables one by one and they are a LOT, but they are all correctly connected so what can be wrong? Hmmm fuze? Yup that's it, a blown 10fuse. I think it blew when I turned the key on with some bare wires (stupid yes I know but hey remind I don't know jack about cars, all I have is YOUR knowledge from what you have posted here, thanks). After replacing the small fuse the stock screen comes on but no back light. After playing with the connectors nothing happens so I removed all the extensions and attached the cables directly but it didn't work. It was 10:20pm and I was really tire so decided to assambled the screen and radio but didn't install the cup holder or glove box or anything related to those areas. I have a date this weekend and I already have a story to tell her when she asks me about the whole thing lol .

    Anyways, what could the wrong with the stock lcd? the ac buttons work, it is just the backlight that doesn't turn on. Can I get the touchscreen fix and where?

    The sound system sound great, just a tad low and it is because I connected the HU straight to the amps. I have engine noise but it can only be noticed when the radio is below volume 10. Can you recommend me a line driver for voice amp and sub amp?

    Ebay? Did you check the Classifieds here? Did you shoot an email to one of the mp3car team to find out if they sell just the raw screens or have any old lilliput inventory?

    Well it is a weekend... and they are a business. Hopefully you'll hear something from them Monday. Try other sellers like Mo-Co-So or mini-box or... whoever else sells little computing parts. I wouldn't know where else to look, may just have to buy a whole new unit.

    Thank you so so much Tidder, I was ready to purchase another monitor for $250 but guess what? Mo-co-so has the replacement lcd so I called them and ordered one for less than $110 and the best part is that it will arrive tomorrow. The green button behind the monitor, is that the auto switch button for the reverse? Do I connect that directly to a v12 line and thats it?

    Update: Yesterday I started playing with the stock lcd and found out that one of the cables was missing a ground. The lcd made ground with the frame where it was held so I looped a ground and it work but the auto dim feature isnt. Once I get the replacement lcd and have time to install, I will take the ground off the frame where it was held.
