I have just bought the mimics and a lilliput monitor: 669GL-70NP/C/T. After some while with building and testing (my iphone is IOS 5.0.1) so I had some difficulties with getting things work because I need to find the latest update for my IPHONE (mobilesubstrate_0.9.3901_iphoneos-arm.deb) Any way now all is up and running. The IPhone and mimics is connected (red light off, blue light on). The problem is that the sensitivity on the touchscreen is bad. It is working but you have to push a lot more than on my IPhone and when scrolling it is also very difficult. Offen you scroll but nothing is happening you then need to scroll again and then it succeded. Same with tapping icons some time the screen react and sometimes nothing happening. Maybe with some more learning i will be able to manage the screen.
But is this normal behavior? I wonder if it is possible to increase the sensitivity some how. What about the mimics firmware, would it be possible to change it my self and increse the sensitivity?
Please let me now if any have same experience or I have missed something in my setup...
No I did not get any answers for my question. In the meantime I found the solution for my problem. The wires from the monitor (the 4 wires that manage the touching) was too long. The wires is very noise-sensitive, so if the are to long the touch-screen becomes "slow" and some times it do not react on the touch.
Any way it is working now and I am satisfied with the solution. If you are planning to buy it you will get it to work but as you discovered you are on your own (
If I can help you i will, just send me a mail or post this Thread
Noise in the touchscreen cable is generated buy the LCD panel. Some touchscreens have a shield layer to almost eliminate this. The reason why you got random touches was because the mimics "blocks" high noise signals to prevent incorrect touches on the device. So in your case a short cable is needed.
