    Lilliput hell

    After looking at some of the custom installs i decided to give it a go myself.

    i think i did a semi decent job but ended up with a white screen.

    so i sereched the forums and found that the common problem is the 40 pin ribbon

    I then managed to blow the small 1 amp fuse, but managed to replace it(soldered a 1 Amp fuse fire across it).

    After waiting for almost three weeks i got the ribbon cables from digitalww but odered the wrong ones. so i redodered the right ones and got them with-in a week (thanks armen).

    Still no luck with the white screen. after spending about three hours trying to reseat the damm cable i thinks its capoot. so if no ones got any ideas any one intrested in a possible fried lilliput or any one out there with some lilliput spares??????

    I have a TView and I had a similar issue.. with mine when I start the truck it turned white instantly.. even when the power buttons was not on.. however if I connected the vga cable to my PC it would work normal..

    something happened with my ground, so I connected my vga ground and auto ground line together.. works fine now.

    so maybe that will help

    I havent connected the lilliput back to the pc yet becuase of the white screen. if the lillput is not connected to anything it should normally say no signal on a black screen shoudent it.

    yes.. my screen did the same as yours .. try grounding the VGA cable.. just touch the housing to a ground source.. that should do it..

    gose out of the window the moment you start gutting it, respraying it , bonding it with your dash , then again theres probably no harm in asking is there?????

    I got mine form ebay posted from hong kong. i dont think it would be worth my time chasing the guy and trying to expalin what ive done as his english is very limited (a lot worser than mine).

    i think im having a really **** week. i just recived a DVD/VCD/MP3 etc player this morning which was supposed to have Aux in (180 uk / almost $300 and its of ebay again) ive just emailed the guy expalining what aux in actually is and hes telling me to take to a professional. thank the lord for paypal! haa haa haa

    so any one with a cheap lilliput out there????

    it's got to be something simple.

    sometimes if I just take something like this apart .. and look it over.. I'll see a loose connection or a burned out component.. ya know..

    I wish I knew more about electronics other wise I'd buy it from ya and fix it..

    I had the same problem. I figgited with trying to reseat the stupid thing for like 45 minutes, before I finally got it. The screen will display one of the following:

    All white if the ribbon is not pluged in at all
    Black w/ "no vga" or fuzzy black if the ribbon is seated improperly
    good picture if properly seated.

    The only way I found to seat it was to plug into the wall and plug into my spare PC and fidget til I got a desktop. Now, while taking it apart I screwed up the ribbons so I have to order those. AHHHHH.
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!
