TM-701L converted Lilliput causes radio interference
I have a 7" Lilliput that I converted to fit in a DigitalWW in-dash pull out housing. When I did the conversion I used a ribbon cable to replace all of the power/vga/video/touchscreen cables in the housing.
I have just got my screen in my 2000 VW Jetta and I have noticed that when the screen is on I get static on some radio stations on my head unit. Some stations are fine, others I get no reception. If I turn the screen off radio reception is back to normal on all stations.
I have tried unplugging everything individually so I know it is the screen. Some refresh rates on the LCD are better than others for radio reception.
My guess at the moment is that because I am using unshielded ribbon cable the VGA signal may be causing radio interference.
Anyone know of a filter or something I could put on my radio, or have any ideas? I don't really want to replace all the wires inside my housing, and I know I could just get rid of my head unit and get a USB radio.
i grounded my vga cable, fixed all problems
I had interference on my lilliput, I grounded the vga cable that connects to the lillput vga and it fixed my flickering and also my noise.
