i found this chip inside a mintek portable dvd player [MDP-1720].
the player was broken so i liberated the lcd from it.
the resulting swag is similar to what this topic's author posted [unfortunately that's all i could salvage, one of the screws was in there way tooo tight to release the rest of the board which was proabably faulty]. i'm new to all this and would just like to know some things:
i assume i can just power this thing by splicing in a ~7v power supply [did a bit of research and ~7v seems to be best] to the 3 wire connector thingy [adapter?]. but uhh what goes to the red [+ or -?] and why are there two blacks[one of them a gnd?] and which wire goes to them from the power supply[again, + or -]? also, am i safe in assuming i can just solder up some adapters[composite, s-video, etc.] right on the chip to get the thing up and running? there was also a 20-pin connector that i'm going to trace to see if i can't just splice in an adapter from there.
what i'd like to do is a diy cintiq by putting it over an intuos or if i can't get s-video to work, making it a sidemounted screen for/on my wii. also i'm planning a led hack on this depending on if the ccfl work or not.
thanks for any help.
btw i'd rather hijack this post rather than make a n00bish one. but maybe i'd have to if i dont get to where i'd like~
