lilliput display problem - RGB lines
First off, i have to thank mp3car.com. I've learned a whole lot by reading these forums and when i can't find an answer and post, i always get nice replies. I also recently bought a motherboard and powersupply and they were shipped so fast. Now, enough kissing up! I have a question.
I have been using a lilliput lcd touch screen in my car, hooked up to a laptop for a while now. It was removed from its shell and assembled in the dashboard. I have been working with it a lot and its been shuffled in and out of the car, around my workbench, etc. I was in the middle of several hour drive when out of the blue, the screen went from displaying my map to showing red, blue and green lines and also white. They were vertical lines that started at the bottom and slowing moved to the top over abotu 10 or 15 seconds until the screen is near white. Now first i figured it was the little ribbon cable that seems to contain the video data, but i tried wiggling them and reseating them and i can't get the picture back. The screen does not even show the "Video 1" or "VGA" words in green. when the cable is not in place it just displays black.
I'm trying to figure out if this can be fixed by replacing the ribbon or if there is a way to test if its something else. does anyone have any advice for me?? Thanks!
