hi there. I finaly finished my lcd extending project.
I wanted a lcd touchscreen (lifebook b2131) put on a lcdarm. From there I could controll a music player.
What I learned from extending my lcdcable:
* try to find points on PCB that are bigger and easier to solder on
* don't try to solder on the lcd cable PCB
* use cables that are suiteble. I used a network cable first(that was what I had availeble at first..), but got interference. Then i used high quality kvm cable that had screen/mouse/keyboard cable molded togheter. everything was shielded. it even had three shielded cables inside a shield. using this cable I had the lcd controller, touchscreen controller and inverter (inverter pcb is built into the screenpackage. it sits close to the lcdscreen, so in my case it was the low voltage wires that where extended) on each of their own cable that was shielded from each other. I can 't see any interference on the screen using my 1.5meter cable
I also have plans to extend the powerbutton, so it is located in the plastic of the screen..
(I have the pins located on the motherboard if anyone is interested)
and wouldn't it be cool to also integrate the laptop mouse thing into the screen?? hehe (I mean the mouse that is integrated into the laptop normaly)
not sure about the last idea because I plan to have to OS working without the mousepointer.
@Yuriy: how did you get winamp so big?
