    Help...Trying to install 7" TS in double DIN

    Hello guys. Here's my situation...

    I recently bought a carputer and trying to install a 7" T-View touchscreen/VGA monitor in a double din. The width and depth of the screen is no problem. It's the height that's causing all the trouble. My double DIN opening measures 4 1/4" high. The screen with the surrounding case measures 5 3/8" high. When I took the screen out of the shroud and test fitted it, the screen will fit near perfect if I don't use the bottom buttons (brightness, contrast, color adjustments etc.) Here's a pic of those huge buttons...

    Will it be a problem if I don't use these adjustment buttons? How often do you guys even use these adjustments? How effective will the screen work when it's not in the surrounding case? Will the screen even work without the 9 pin harness (8 black wires and 1 red wire)?

    Thanks!

    Try looking in the Show Off Your Project forum and seeing what other people have done for fabrication work in your situation.

    The way I see it, you have two options:
    1) Live without the adjustment buttons.
    2)Do some more fabrication work than anticipated to allow access to the function buttons.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I used the adjustment button once...In my second install I ditched those buttons and relied only on the remote.
