    Unhappy Colored lines with double din mounted eby701

    Hello,

    I ordered an eby701 off ebay already put into the plastic double din mount, and touch and vga work great on it, but when I switch to video 1 or 2, the video goes crazy.
    To be more clear, this is what happens: I change the input, the screen goes black for 1/4 sec, then comes back with" video 1" in green in the upper right for 1 sec, just like normal, then goes black again for 1/2 sec, then shows rainbow colored vertical lines all over the screen with "video 1" in green in the corner for a 1/2 sec, then "video 1" goes away and all you have all crazy lines.

    I have read others have the same or similar issues, but they seem to be related to the ribbon cable. I bought a new one from the store here (wayy too long for what I needed) and it came today, and after swapping it still works in vga mode, but freaks out in video 1 or 2 mode. I've tried fidgeting the cable a little, but really don't want to make things worse (eg lose vga)

    Are there any other magic solutions I can try? I read someone say that orientating the cable one way or the other fixed it, but not sure what joint or which way to do it.

    I'm considering buying another and selling this one if nothing works, in case anyone needs a vga+touch ONLY eby701.

    Thanks!

    You need to re-seat your ribbon cable. Be careful taking it out of the bracket because with too much force the bracket will snap off

    I've had screens go like that, but with mine the Analogue inputs were fine and the VGA that was like that.

    I thought it was the boards, but it turned out to be the ribbon cables.

    @Sonicxtacy: I have reseated the cable countless times as I played with it and swapped cables back and forth. I just don't seem to have any luck. Is it safe to open the clip and wiggle the ribbon cable in the port?

    @Enforcer: What was the solution? A new cable? Wiggling it around? Holding it in one direction? I've seem the common solutions but haven't had any luck

    Thanks!!

    honestly i've had boards fail with similar symptoms, so its possible the whole board needs replaced. If you've re-seated multiple times and the ribbon slides all the way in (without much force) then its probably board replacement time.

    Well I had quite a few which I had given up on.

    It was only when I got a new cable and put it in one, and then decided to test all the screens with that board, found only one screen out of four was dead. Then I tried what I thought were the faulty boards and then started working OK. Tried some of the old cables and a couple worked a couple didn't.
