    Oh...and something else. It was said that Datalux displays don't have a hirose cable and are just snap together. However, my LMV10R2 that I took apart yesterday had a hirose ribbon cable going from the controller to the screen. It looks almost just like the other 2 hirose cables I have except its shorter and the wires are attached together. (like an IDE cable that is not rounded).

    AHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    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.

    defference between Rev C & Rev E

    i was wondering if anyone knows what the difference is between the rev c and the rev e controllers. i know that they are both for 5v screens, but what other differences are there?

    Someone has offered me a Rev C, but I am not sure what could be different between the two.

    Please enlighten me, as there does not seem to be any mention of rev c boards anywhere!

    Also, how much should i be paying for a rev c?

    Hey folks, I got a datalux, and Im wondering, do any of you know of a lcd my controller will work with that is *smaller* then 10.4"?
    I cant fit a 10.4" lcd in my car, but it would be nice to use atleast the controller and touchscreen controller for something. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Thanks to Trottingwolf I have some new info to post here. According to Trottingwolf modern 3.3v display cards *can* be made to work with the 5v Datalux TFT drivers. The way to do it is to simply use a 5v logic chip (he used a hex inverter, I used a quad AND), using the HSYNC and VSYNC as inputs it will provide 5v outputs. I have tried this MOD myself and it does work. For the *Exact* details, here's his thread->

    Datalux Display supports only 640x480, nothing higher (unless you have custom controller board)

    Hmm, interesting stuff here. I'm looking at getting a cheap LMV10R and I suppose (based on what I'm reading) probably gutting it and upgrading it. Does anybody know if it works to replace the backlight with a brighter one and get a better screen brightness?

    I want to get the most brightness I can out of my screen, I suspect I'll need to replace the inverter board. Does anyone have a compatible part number for the 10.4 inch Datalux displays?
