    EBY701 Image is flipped!

    I have my relatively new EBY701 (about 6 months old) hooked to my carputer on my desk and have been playing with it off and on for months without any issues. Today I turned the carputer on just to listen to some music and the screen is flipped! Sort of like mirror image but flipped top to bottom (y-axis flip). It isn't the computer flipping the image because it's fine on another monitor and the "no input signal" is also flipped when I turn the monitor on without the computer. The touchscreen works correctly, meaning that if I click in the lower left corner for the start menu the start menu actually comes up even though it is now at the top left of the screen! Here's an image I manipulated to resemble what I see on the screen:


    I'm starting to get better at reading things upside down and backwards. Using the touchscreen is very difficult and using a mouse is only slightly easier.

    I've read this model monitor doesn't have reverse image, but it appears mine does or I screwed something up mounting it to the bracket I made. (you can see how it's mounted in my worklog here)

    It has been working fine using it mounted as it is. I have removed it and mounted it several times while working on the bracket's finishing touches.

    Any idea how to do a factory reset on this thing? I have set it to auto turn on and have gone through all the menus I can find and didn't see anything that looked applicable. I did see one option that said "back car" that I tried changing without any difference.

    Bump. Help me Forrest, help me!

    I figured it out. The ribbon cable to the back of the monitor was pulled out slightly on one end. I disconnected then reconnected and all is well again. It must have just wanted some attention today!

    I had a similar issue with a Xenarc 705TSV, it was related to the 40pin ribbon that everyone's using in their designs. I guess if it gets jiggled a little bit, or isn't in all the way, or something along those lines, the image can be reversed/inverted in a number of directions. By partially adjusting the 40 pin in my 705tsv i was able to go from normal to flipping it x, then y, then both. Was really annoying and I couldn't get consistent and stable. Ended up caving and ordering the double din modified EYB701 from the mp3car store. Which seems like it might have some sort of flickering issue, and came complete with a dead/stuck pixel... Hoping a night of jscreenfix.com does the trick.

    Anyhow, it's the 40pin ribbon, definitely. May want to retape it into position or something.

    Thanks, it was indeed the ribbon cable. I intentionally left it connected while I've been doing my fab work, but I must have yanked on it a bit too hard recently.
