    Unhappy Ident on a screen/controller...pls hlp.

    I bought a 10.1" LCD screen from Outragis off this board about a year and a half ago. Well I have lost the documentation on it, and need to get it running. I have tried searching the components and Google to see if I could get anything from the web, but no luck. What I have gathered is this: The screen appears to be a

    "Sharp b6n18b"
    "Y027BKA-B".

    The controller:

    "viewtek" "s/n 02203" ,
    "series 80" with "axiom designs"

    Taking some numbers from the bios chips on the board :

    "11s6lvnv-1.7" and "LM1205N".

    I have had no luck in my searches. The screen and controller are capable of 16m colors and 800X600 resolutions. I know that it has 500 nits of brightness. Please help me out if you can. Any documentation left or any ideas as to where to get some info to get this screen back up. Thanks for your help in advance.

    Regards, Corey Lipham

    thanks Josh, why didnt I think of that.

    there are some wires that I do not know the voltage or load. Well let me get that straight I know the voltage of the wires, but I do not know the load. Also I have 2 Dc-Dc ps. I have one for the system, and this second one I am going to setup to run just the screen. Seeing as how I only need a 12v 5v and a gnd. I am worried about the load for the 5v line. it could be 10 it could be 1. If it is too much then this dc ps is not going to cut it for me. I once had a pdf doc on the controller, and now I dont have it. So I was just tryign to get some help on the load. Also on another note, I need to jump the second ps off of the first one. So when the PC power supply is on, so is the screens ps. Oh well, im sure there is something on that laying around.

    yea, ill go takes some pics for you. brb....

    Pic 1....you have 3 wires, then maybe 10 wires, and another 10 wires, is that right? They all go to the display? 3 wires for the inverter? Do you have an inverter?

    If its 10 and 10, then you an LVDS display.

    So you need to figure out where to attach the power supply to the controller, and connect the LCD panel to the controller, and what else. The inverter?
    well in pic one that is the controller. The wire pack on the right goes to the screen.

    Pic 2 : thats just the bottom of the controller...probably useless for all accounts

    Pic 3: close up of same wire pack

    Pic 4: yes, this is the inverter. Red 5v, yellow 12v, white |-5v|, blue |-12v|

    From the input diagram that I think I recorded right, on the power header on the controller only +12, +5, and gnd are used. but I am not absolute 100% on that. I cant remember what the pdf doc said.

    pic 5: the screen.

    oh I left a pic of that out...casue that hooks up from the controller...so I need not worry about that.

    ps...eys the bl is built in....powered from a free standing module that connect to the controller off to the left.(not in pics) I am just trying to get stable correct DC power to the controller, after that im in business.

    well I guess we got this solved, so you dont think I should worry about the amps on each of the hot lines, if it is comming from its own 90w supply? I think I will be safe, but I hate to go off hooking crap up and blow 400$. and have to start the lcd search again.
