just a thought - could this have anything to do with the DVI->VGA convertor???
Shouldn't have to do with the DVI connector, as i used that on mine.
Try grounding VGA Pin 11. If it still doesn't work after that, ground VGA pin 4 as well.
Tried grounding pins 11 and 4.......
extending desktop to the display still wont take. Just greys back out after trying to apply. Screen is powered on too when I try.
I've checked my soldering with a curcuit tester and this is how it currently stands.
vga12- not connected
vga14- not connected
vga15- not connected
Its gonna be hard soldering anymore cables in there with the shovel of a soldering iron Ive got!
Pins12(id1 or sda) and pin15(id3 or scl) - whats sda and csl stand for? do I need them connected up too!?
any more ideas.........before I sell the damn thing!
Isn't there a 'force detection of secondary display' setting in the Radeon control panel?
Can you try plug in a second monitor to the secondary just to get the Radeon to detect a monitor, then unplug the second monitor and plug the LCD in. See if that displays anything?
The PS1 LCds... are they 5.6" screens?
If so this hack + a pair of $8 shroud / mounting kits from Parts Express. And I'll have VGA headrest monitors!
So... are they 5.6"? I'm going to be REALLY HAPPY if they are!
Also.. are the PS1 / PS2 screens the same, or does anyone know?
See if someone can get this working on a gamevue!
I ordered parts for the sync on green and h+v->c sync scematics, we'll see later this week
Mine's 13cm diagonal, so that's about 5.1".
The PCB on the back though is a little larger than the actual LCD, dont' forget to take that into account..
Just remember that this isn't a standard VGA, so you won't see anything until Powerstrip / X initialises.
I have one of these PSOne LCD screens as well and I plan to install it into my dash. I've had a skim through this thread and notice everyone talking of wiring layouts and such. I was wondering what you were wiring up exactly ?
I have this screen working on my laptop at the moment using just the normal power convertor (which I will replace with a cigarette lighter Dc-DC adapter in the car) and a headphone->composite adapter where the headphone jack has 4 segments instead of the normal three (this cable is available from Harvey Norman in Australia). Composite plugs into a VGA->Composite converter.
This setup works fine driven by X-Windows on my soon-to-be-incar-laptop.
Hope you can clear up what im missing here !
