    Unhappy Need help powering this Screen

    Hi all, I used to post here in highschool, god knows what my username was....

    Anyway, I recently got a screen for $100, which is a steal here in Australia (normally around $250 after shipping).

    The catch is it doesnt have a wiring loom for the power.

    That is the screen. It used to be very common so hopefully someone can tell me the pinout for the power connector.

    Thanks all, I really appreciate any help.

    Specs would help....
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    specs?

    It has no writing whatsoever on the outside.

    Its a 7" single din motorized touch screen.

    The only non-schematic writing on the mainboard is "po7oia-M"

    It has VGA, 2 Composite, and a USB input. It also has a remote IR reciever on the front, but thats on a daughter board so I dont know if its actually active.

    The board has a spot for a TV tuner which is not installed.

    Thats about all I can tell you.

    :O

    you're right!

    http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Produc...C=1257&ID=1481

    Its identical to one of those but no branding on it.

    Assume its the same internals too? Anyone have the pinout for the power for these>?

    Did you even bother to read the specs in the link you provided?
    It specifies the power requirements right there.

    It looks like only 3 pins are populated in the 6 pin power cable shown in the user's manual. (on thermaltake's site for the a2314)

    Should be top 2 from left to right, and bottom 1 left.

    (It was a bw pic, so I couldn't say for sure what was hot, but my guess was pins 1,3)

    If you have a DVOM, you can check the pins for continuity to the chassis, thereby locating ground. The other(s) will be 12v DC.

    I dont unfortunately, otherwise I would have checked.
    I know most of the theory just dont hav the tools.

    Someone on here MUST own a thermaltake screen (or one of these clones)

    OK, well like they say, you can't help those who won't help themselves.
    I would suggest picking up a cheapo meter. They can be had for less than 10.00.
