    Hacking my Morotized screen.

    Ok so I have this screen:



    I want to turn it into a VGA screen. So all I need is a VGA controller? Correct?

    I already took it apart and it has the same Panasonic LCD Module that Armen sells. But do I need an Inverter or anything else?

    Also what would be a good LCD Controller solution? I cant seem to find one via google.

    What LCD panel is inside? Can you take pictures of all the components?

    If it is the same LCD Panel than the Gain/Xenarc controller and inverter will work.

    What about the electronics that control the motors? Are they on the main Video controller or on a separate circuit?

    Let me know.

    Electronics for the motors are on a seperate circuit. The LCD Panel is identicle to the one in this pic:

    Thanks for any help Armen.

    Then the controller (xenarc/gain) will work. If you take your LCD panel and the controller out of the housing, does it still slide in and out?

    This could be a very simple mod. Just have to try. The controller will definitely work. Also you will need to figure out how to run the VGA cable.

    Can you get any pictures?

    I'm at work now. I will try to post some pics tonight.

    Will I still need an inverter? I never understood exactly what they do anyway.



    Also how much is the xenarc/gain controller?

    the backlight are using CCFLs, and they run on high freq AC generated from the inverters

    with no inverters you have no light and can see nothing.

    as you can see from the picture

    it already has backlighting unless I'm missing something here.

    The backlight still needs an inverter to power it.

    You will need an inverter ($10), VGA Controller and Cable ($160).

    Take some pics of the mechanism if you can and every other angle inside the housing.
