    Lightbulb Auto Power-on Lilliput

    Hi,
    I am not sure if this has been posted before, so sorry if it is a repost.

    I have 2 Lilliputs here right now, and the newer one has automatic power-on support. When you have the monitor powered up, and you just unplug the power cable, and then plug it back in, it turns on again.
    The older one however, does not do this.

    It can be done with the old monitors

    I have an older version of the screen ( bought about 6 months ago). It didn't have the auto power on. But trough a freak accident ( my inverter malfuctioned), the mointor vent trough on/off cycle for about 10 times in 10 seconds. Since then the monitor has a auto power. I can turn it off , cut the power and it will stay off when it get the power back. If I leave it on and cut the power, it will resume as soon is it gets power. I assume that it has a circuit for it, but it wasn't enabled by default. So you can try making it go on/off fast for couple of seconds.
    Off course do this at your own risk.

    hmmm

    I am not sure, but I remember a tread,where another person expirienced same thing I did. Maybe instead of shuting it off trough the button, you need to unplug it, and plug it in fast. Becasue my monitor was losing power and getting it back fast. It alsmo didn't have time to turn its self off.

    Over the weekend, I took the glove box out of the car, to get behind to try hooking my phone carkit to the PC, using a cable I had just received and Zorro's phonecontrol. It didn't work, so started putting everything back, just before I put the last couple of screws in, I thought let me just turn the car on a make sure everything is working (HU is in Glove box and power connection for lilli and a few other things are in that area. Well car wouldn't start. ****!.

    Anyway, put the glove box back anyway, tried ignition again, still no joy. Double ****. I know it's probably flooded, I'd just moved the car a small distance in the drive to allow the wife to park her car. Anyway tried again, all I got was clicking, power on /power off = - --- -- - -> battery low. Left the car overnight.

    Used the wifes car in the morning. afternoon, lets try again. (had charged a spare battery overnight), connected and whomph car started.



    Now where's this all going you're asking?



    Well lo and behold, my Lilliput now auto starts, when power is connected.

    Maybe by continuing to power the Lilliput with a dropping voltage, it some how clears the EEPROM (or what whatever it uses to store settings) and sets it to Auto Power On. Hmmm. might have to try this with a small UPS battery and see what happens before I go and do the Coyote mod.
