I put my touchscreen housing in the freezer last night as advised by allenrubble and when I went to push it out today. It started coming out great, but when I went to push out the third corner. SMASH. It spiderweb-cracked all over.
UPDATE: I had a 2nd touchscreen here so I successfully removed that one from its housing, with no freezer or anything so apparently putting them in the freezer dosen't help much if at all.
UPDATE 2: The 2nd touchscreen here does not have little white dots all over it and when I looked at the controller that came with it, it's got a capacitive jumper configuration? Is there any way to tell if this screen is capacitive for sure? Because if it is.....DEAR GOD...anyone see that new movie SIGNS?
UPDATE 3: The new touchscreen does not have the brightness and contrast controls on the outside as the broken one does. It appears I won't be able to easily adjust the contrast of the screen...only the brightness using ia pot with my backlight inverter.
UPDATE 4: For all of you who ever decide to call Datalux, Jon Christian always seemed like a nice helpful guy until today when he told me if I put a smaller voltage over a load, it will compensate by sending higher current. Hmm...that seems to obey current = voltage/load real well I think. So I will no longer be taking any advice from him, and instead i'll be talking to Ron Kincer or Allen Ruble.
