    Dead Lilliput

    Hi guys,

    Ive been reading the other topics on such items but im not sure wether to be worried or not :\

    Ive got a 7" Touchscreen Lilliput

    I had it appart over the weekend creating a facia. Ive Just put it back together and now i cant get it to do anything.

    Basically when i put the 12V adapter into it, nothing happens.

    No Light, no noise no nothing.

    What can i try guys, im really stuck here because i really have no experience troubleshooting problems with PCB's :\

    Cheers

    try to realign the ribbon cables repeatedly until it works. It will take a bazillion tries, but in the end, thats what it usually is. they didnt use very high quality connectors and it is very hard to align them correctly.

    if your screen is not displaying, might want to check the other cable. I think the one that was not correct at first was the switch/led one, and now I would try messing with the video one. I had the same issues with my lilly. Now my touchscreen is dead. Grrr

    if theres no power light, then the ribbon cable to the buttons isnt aligned right
    if its just displaying a white sceen, the ribbon cable to the screen isnt aligned
    if you are seeing a image on the screen, but very dark. you may have forgot to plug in the inverter cable
