    My White Screen of Death

    So I got a white screen of death today on my 7" Lilliput. I ideled the car about 2 hours outside my house installing programs and setting them up then all of a sudden the screen goes brighter and thn nothing, whiteness with little shadows. I would have to turn the screen off and on to get it to go away for 1 min at first then it'd return. This happened over 5 times then I decided to leave the screen off for 2 mins and went for a drive.

    During the drive, everyhting was fine, and nothing happened. So i did some and found this thread White Screen of death which is still the White screen of death, but a gentelman suggested that it might be the "egg" and come to think of it, it might be, because it dies when I idle maybe not enough Volts is going into it or seomthing or the other I don't know.

    Anyways, can anyone help me as to what I can replace the Egg with? I'm comfortable with soldering anything together so I assume it'd just be a simple operation of cutting the egg out and soldering something else in. It is currently wired to the CIG adapter. I know the Egg is a regulator, so what regulator can I use to replace it? (hopefully it'll solve the wavy display problem too)

    wssup phat chink lets see here i dont think you really need to use the egg because i tried my lilliput without it and it worked fine. what you can do is cut the plug off after the egg the male version L adpater that connects to the side or extension on the lilliput... then strip the ends ones negative ones positive i believe the one with the line is positive (dont quote me) and then ground the ground wire to a good bolt... hook up the positive wire into a ACC fuse in ur fuse box and if you want you can run a inline fuse but no need to becasue the one in the fusebox covers for it try it out might work :-D

    hey, ya I know, but the egg is supposed to regulate the power right, but its not doing a good job thats why we get those wavy lines on the screen, at least from the analogy I read in this forum thats why. So I dont think taping it to the ACC would solve the problem.
    If what you said is true then by best guess would be the egg is a 12 V regulator because other your screen woulda blew up by now (either that or not being able to pwoer up at all). Has anyone actualyl tried to put a new better regulator in there and get the wavy lines to stop? and or white screen?
    I'm not even sure if the 2 are related!!?!?
    help me out here guys!
