I just bought a xenarc/gaim unit from digitalww.com, and got it in the mail a couple of days ago. Just tried it today... and it doesn't work.
The LED comes on, and stays on. When I look at the screen though, I can just barely see anything on the screen.... basically I can only tell if there's something on the screen if I do a pan, so that you can see stuff barely move on the screen. For instance, if I'm viewing a thread in the forum, since there are the blue and white parts... if i move up or down, I'll be able to see slight shadows move up or down on the LCD.
Touchscreen works (i have dual monitor vga card, so that's how I can tell what the little lcd SHOULD be doing)
I didn't touch anything in terms of connectors, other than plugging in the correct plugs, etc.
I tried this thread http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/lcd-display/21601-xenarc-issues.html for help.
As for the wire going to the inverter, I get 12VDC on the green, ~3.3 VDC on the brown, and 0 VDC for yellow and orange.
Unfortunately I appear to be getting 0.05 VAC between the white and pink wires coming out of the inverter.
I tried searching, but to no avail (other than the link shown above).
Any ideas? Armen? Anyone else? I want to try to get some ideas before a return is considered.
Thanks in advance.
edit: i fixed the link above
edit: now I appear to be getting ~5VAC on the output of the inverter... whether the LCD is connected to the inverter or not (so it's not a loading issue).
