    Powering Mobile TV M5000

    I believe this is a newbie question, if for no other reason than the fact that I don't know whether it would belong in the Power or the Display forum. That makes me a newbie, right?

    Anyway, I have a 5 inch mobile tv lcd screen that I'm going to be using for my carpc until I magically become rich. It is a composite in screen, but hopefully it will be sufficient to display a little MP3 info and the like.

    My question is how I should power the screen. It has a power connector built into the breakout box for the video inputs, which is then connected to the actual screen through another cable. I've attached pictures of the connector socket and the pinout diagram. I'm running an old desktop ATX power supply and an inverter. Could somebody instruct me on the best way to get power to the screen? Thanks.

    You don't have to use the remote out wire. You only need to supply +12v for the acc and battery lines. If you are going to use your ATX power supply for this, you can use the yellow wire on the molex connectors coming out of the power supply. You can also use the ground right next to the yellow wire from the same connector.

    So on the screen power connector, the yellow wire from the molex connector will be connected to both the acc and battery lines. The ground line.... I'll let you figure it out.
