    Need info on this monitor...if anyone has it or access to it

    I have this in-dash screen here...was a leftover from a friends build in a mustang that we pulled out when he sold the car. I'm going to use it on a project at home and need the info on the power connection.

    Here is the screen...

    There is no info on the outside casing of the unit...I had to look inside on the circuit boards to find P070IA...doing a search on google brings up some chinese exchanges to find it for sale...I did track it down to xdx tech or something along those lines...little chinese company...probably never heard of Engrish, and I've yet to get a response from them on it.

    Does anyone have access or have this monitor that can give me the pinout of the power connector? It's a 6-pin connector that is very similar to a 6-pin PCI-E power connector.

    Thanks

    From the size of the hand, I'd say it's a 22"

    yeah...funny isn't it? all the chinese links show something like that...whether the hand is on the left or the right...that's like the ultra-mega-din version.

    Installation instructions: Gut your dashboard, throw away the airbags...sawzawl everything else in the way, screw it down to whatever you can.


    This monitor is crap. The only way I'd put it in my car would be in the trunk on the way to toss it in a trash/recycle bin. Feed it power and it turns on...just for a sec...then right back off. Of course..maybe it's the power source I rigged up. They don't specify power requirements other than 11.5-13v...no mention of current. I have a 12v 2A adapter on it...guess it isn't enough

    Probably not enough for an LCD. 5-10 amps is more like it.
    The best forum start place is here but damned if I could find it. I had spent several weeks on the forum before finding it.

    for a standard lcd 5-10amps is a crazy high load. My lilliput lcd's came with 12v 1.5a adapters. I suppose the older - especially motorized with tv input - in-dash lcd's use more than 5a tho. I hooked up 2 12v 4A adapters and it powered up. Working fine now....still wouldn't put it in my car tho
