    New Enthusiast

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Patrick and im from the US. I found this site from searching google for a solution to wire a LCD Panel with a VGA connector. After reading and seeing what people have done, i want to do this myself and possibly even use the panel i have for this application. So to kick off this membership, if anyone knows how to connect a Hitachi Panel to a VGA connector, please send me a message. Meanwhile i will start looking through posts and reading what people have to offer. Thanks for reading!

    Welcome to mp3car! Glad you're searching.

    You need the LCD panel controller specifically made for that LCD panel. Generally they cost $300-$400 to buy from the manufacturer if you can even get it, and then you have to hook them up yourself. You're better off getting one of the pre-made LCD's from Xenarc or Lilliput that already have a VGA connector and case, and run off of 12v.

    As i have heard! I just had a gutted laptop given to me and the LCD is still working afaik, and wanted to do something to it, but from what i see its better to just sell it to someone who needs a replacement for their laptop. Thanks for your input.
