    So I got an LCD for cheap...

    Right here

    Anyway, it's a Toshiba LTM-10C353F. Anybody know how I'd go about hooking this up? I bought it since it was really cheap, so if worse comes to worse, I lose $20, no big deal. Has anybody dealt with this screen or can give me clues into reverse-engineering the connection?

    Thanks,
    -Lito

    email toshiba, and earth lcd... ask them for pinouts.

    earthlcd has it on the list of screens they will buy, so they should know something about it.

    toshiba should know something about it as well, cuz its their screen... send a picture of it if you can. then they wont be as likely to give you the crap about it being a re-seller item that they dont know anything about...

    thats what i would do, since the google search i did came up with nothing helpful.

    Also, if you're new to this, do a search...you'll fine that you need a controller, etc. for using a laptop screen.

    I'm surprised mp3z didn't bash ya for not searching..heh.

    Thanks guys. I knew I needed a controller, but it's not like I can just grab any and it would work. That's why I was asking what the next step would be.

    ouch (... removes pointy sitck from his back)

    im sure he knows better by now hes been here a bit...

    anyway... i have no clue what kind of connection that screen has. from those crappy pictures that were posted on the ebay auction, you cant tell anything 'cept the model number. if its a hirose you will be in pretty good shape... if it is a 44-pin (i think thats the right number) for the lcd cabling... perhaps you can find a SBC with the lcd cable output... i really dont know much outside the hirose realm!

    hopefully you can get some data sheets or something... reverse engineering an lcd input is going to be hard as hell without damaging the screen...

    best of luck to ya!

    Hmmm, Hirose huh? If the connection looks like this then, it's a Hirose?


    If it is, I'd still need a controller and a cable from Hirose, correct?

    well it is a 31-pin connection, however it isnt the "typical" hirose connection. perhaps someone here will know if it is or isnt...

    hirose is a connection type... it is akin to "molex" connectors on hard drive power connections... kinda like an industry standard for this application.

    so the controller you are going to have to get (assuming this is a31-pin hirose) is going to be made by someone else... i have 2 controllers.. one from datalux, and one from digital view...

    the datalux was from allenruble from the forums... he will have some for sale on occasion. watch the for sale forum. he usually sells them for $60
    the digitalview i got with an lcd package i bought on ebay. it is a kick *** card and im told it retails for over $400. about double what i paid for my entire lcd setup!!

    first things first however... work on getting a data sheet. it will make you life a billion times easier when it comes time to hook it up. also, you are going to need to know what inverter you are going to need for the backlight.

    Good luck finding a connector type or a data sheet for that matter for this lcd. I looked for about 3 months for a data sheet on a similiar lcd with the same exact connector and I could not find a single thing. If you get lucky please tell me.

    UPDATE

    OK, here's the connection on the back of the LCD.



    It's a 14-pin connection. I've emailed Toshiba and they sent me an email saying they'd get back to me. I've also spoken to a few people with this screen, but they're clueless as me. Here's a few more pics I took:
