    Lilliput Screen - Serial db9 connector

    Hi... thanks for the reply on the Lilliput screen question. I have two quick follow-ups:
    1. Where exactly can I get one of these connectors...

    2. and how to I actually connect it to the screen and the pc? Do I need to order the cable, cut it and splice wires? If so, which cable to I splice/fuse together... short cable coming from monitor... or longer cable that has a vga connector on the other end?

    Any help is greatly appriciated. Thanks again.

    Hi all... I am having serious issues with my lilliput: The screen is constantly blue... I can see everything on the screen, you can tell there should be more colors, but it has this overall blue tint to it. I have tried the autogain feature but that too does not work. Is there something loose inside or is the screen damaged? Any help and suggestion would be great. Thanks folks.

    The 9 pin connector is pretty crappy. Replace it with a serial db9 connector.

    I replaced mine witha serial DB9 extension cable I picked up at RadioShack.
    http://www.radioshack.com/product.as...%5Fid=950-0225

    I just cut the DB9 cable in half and connected one half to the monitor and the other to the vga/usb cable. Works much better now.

    For the liliiput 9 pin connector:
    Cut both sides of the connector off and plug them together. Then strip the wire ends off of both sides and use a meter to verify connectivity between the wires. The brown/purple leads and the blue/orange wires are crossed on my lilliput. All the rest were the same color.

    Wire one side of the DB9 to the monitor wire and the other side to the VGA/USB wire. Check to make sure connectivity is the same between the wires for the new connector as the old connector.
