TouchScreen EPROM "error/failure"
End result was that I needed to get the controler replaced...it had crapped out / or was no good to begin with.
I have read a few threads and would like to know if there is a consensus on how to fix this... My touchscreen worked fine for less than an hour, then after connecting it to my carputer and loading my WinXP and everything else, I get the EEPROM error and can't calibrate. Is there a loose connection inside or is the small chip on the touch board need to be replaced?
A new controller will fix this problem.
Also, I had one of the Lilliputs with this problem and the controller started working after a week. On others the problem doesn't go away and the touch controller needs to be replaced.

So, what's to say that a new touchscreen board won't fail in a few days? My Lilliput was bought from the manufacturer in December.
It is very rare that this happens. If you would have bought your monitor from me then I would replace the controller for FREE (1 year warrantee).
Have you tried contacting the person you bought it from? Maybe they will also replace it for free.

I emailed the manufacturers and am waiting for a response. I decided that since I will be taking it apart, it would void your warranty too.

Regarding the USB touchscreen controller (from my site @ http://www.tmz.com/wrx/lilliputLCD.html):Originally Posted by ddogg_777
The tiny 8 pin chip is the ATC 93C46 and is a 1 kBit serial EEPROM, or SEEPROM. ATCorp doesn't have any datasheets on their website, but the same part is also made by Microchip and Holtek. The minute I start getting any EEPROM errors with the touchscreen, I'm pulling off that cheap ATC chip and replacing it with a Microchip. Not sure it would solve the problem, but it would be an easy way to check.
If you can't desolder and resolder a surface mount chip, then send it to me and I'll do it for you. I'd be happy to do it just to check my suspicion. I've dont more than my fair share of surface mount soldering and rework. If you can, send me the chip also. If not, I'll grab one from Digikey next time I'm ordering from them.
PHC, I was hoping you would chime in. I was gonna ask you if you ever needed to change out your chip. What style chip do I look for: TSSOP, MSOP, rotated...etc.
I don't have a good picture of it on my web page, might have to take it apart again or look at the raw photos. Its probably a 8 Pin SOIC, I'm 90% sure.Originally Posted by ddogg_777
