Got mine yesterday as well. When I get to that part try to help if this question has not been answered yet.
I got my motorized enclosure yesterday, but I'm lost on how exactly to connect the extra yellow cable that comes with the enclosure. Armen's instructions show a cable with four wires, while mine has 5 (1 red, 4 yellow). I already soldered the connections onto the Lilly controller, but I just need to know which pin goes to which wire on the controller. Since it's not at all clear from the pictures. I emailed Armen already, but I just wanted to check on here just in case he can't get back to me today.
Did you guys buy the motirized in dash unit? Or which one did you if its not that.
Ok figured out what to do.
In this picture you see the 5 wires (1 red and 4 yellow)
In this picture you see only 4 yellow wires.
I am assuming you don't need the red and you can cut it off. Armen please correct me if I am wrong.
yeah, but which yellow wire goes to what wire on the controller board? well, it won't matter for me anyway because something happened to my controller board. i must have screwed something up because when I put it back together the screen came on for a second then died. I don't even get a signal to the buttons which tells me my controller board died. Everything was working last night (except the screen obviously since I didn't have the controller cable hooked up). i'll have to see if Armen is selling any spare controllers now... to anyone planning to get this enclosure: I recommend letting Armen do it since he's done it a number of times already.
Using the inverter is not really necessary. What I started doing is just extending the backlight wires by 250mm. This makes the install much easier. I don't have any pictures at the moment but it is easy to do. Make sure that the wire is similar to original backlight wires are.
yeah, that's what I was wondering?? why they have an inverter in there if the cable just needs to be extended. so now, my question is.... how can I be sure what the problem is with my screen? if the buttons don't receive any power (checked the ribbon cable with a volt meter and nothing is coming through) is it safe to assume the controller is gone?
I have a question for you guys...
Is the cable from your original Lilliput as long as the one in this picture?
Mine is nowhere near that long and it doesn't reach to the opening of the back of the case.
This is your best bet. This happens very often so you might still be fine. Also check the fuse to see if it is still ok.
