    LCD testing Power

    Just for the purpose of testing my 5.6" legacy LCD. Could i hook it up to a AC->DC converter. Like the little black box things that pluginto the wall? Or should i just use the 12v line off a psu?

    thx

    Use the 12V line from a computer PSU to test it out... its the perfect source... pure and clean 12v... the lcd will love you..


    LCD's take less than 1A... so if you have an AC/DC adapter that puts out atleast 800mA... give it a try... but comp 12v is better.

    just be VERY carefull if you use one of those "little black boxes" they are all different, having different voltages and currents. If you plug, say for instance, a 6v plug in it will not work. If you plug a 18v it could fry your unit.

    big 10:4 on that. I checked, it says 12vDC right on. I then pluged it in and tested with my digital volt meter to check the actual voltage. I will be using the 12v line off my psu anyways but i am gona turn the black box into a fan-tester unit.

    Thx for the warning
