yeah, if I remembered half the stuff I forgot I'd be all right...
they have connectors too i think. You better get some.
i am getting started on my new LCD project this weekend. Off to maplins to look for a case....
Punisher, you dont seem to understand basic principles here. You see the units 38,000cd/m^2?
that means 38,0000 candella per metre squared of surface area of the tube.
If you use 3 separate straight tubes the same diameter and same total length of the original CCFL it will be the SAME brightness.
If i were you i would really try and see if lilliput can come up with a new tube or a new panel. Hell, use the old panel to possibly fit our backlight upgrades into as they may actually fit the 8" without any tweaking but even if they dont we plan on getting some slightly different length tubes that will run of the same inverters (all be it slightly dimmer but he have a massive overhead of power and no one will ever use the full brightness - incaft we wont let people as we will have a limiter).
OMG why the **** did i even bother trying to explain something to you?
You are the one who keeps going on about how the 3 tubes will be brighter than the original. I was jsut pointing out your error and that is how you reply!
I told you in one of my fisrt PMs to contact the mp3car store or Armen at digitalww about a replacemnt panel - did you? You would then only have to pay for US shipping and it will probably work out cheaper than buying 3 CCFLs at $9 a go and a new inverter OR shipping the original CCFL from china but do you listen? no!
Do you have any idea how many hours I have put into this backlight stuff? no. And it is people with attitudes like your who make me want to throw in the towel.
No please go start your own thread and stop posting on this one. This thread is for the backlight upgrade stuff - as it says in the title. Not a thread on how you fumble around trying to fix your broken lilliput!
seriously scouse, calm down. if you don't want te reply to Punisher, you don't have to. you're just making yourself look like an arse
WTF!!! i give up.
I give some one advice - he continually ignores it
WE (not just me) ask him to go create a thread about the problem - he ignores it and continues posting.
We say explain something many times - you all seem to ignore it
WTF is the point? Sometimes i wonder how people on this forum even remember to breathe!

Greenman, i tired to help him with my post above and he comes back with a sarcastic comment. Now as for you....you complain about all the crap on this thread yet you continue to add to it. now i really dont give a **** anymore as I dont need to read this thread as I know everything that is in it. I only ever come to this thread to answer questions. I have a notebook at work full of deisgns and ideas. For all i care now this thread can be locked as it serves no importance to me - it is just slightly irritating when people act the way you and punisher have. Ignoring advice, refusing to read information that is already there is extremely annoying.
Oh and by the way, you are welcome for the solution to your PCI problems btw!
oh and you see the link in my sig. I made that for the benefit of you! Well you are ******* welcome!
