No interest?
That's surprising.

Possible groupbuy: PEAK Backup Camera 7 inch (samsclub)

Greetings all... I mentioned this in the main "PEAK Backup Camera 7 inch Screen" thread... but figured I'd bring it out here for more exposure. Sam'sClub is running a deal on this unit selling at $49.81... seeing as this is much cheaper than most of these sold on ebay/elsewhere online... I though so...

Re: PEAK Backup Camera 7 inch Screen

Would you be willing to ship to germany as well? If so, how much? I don't know... I don't know what the unit weighs in packaging, so I cannot give an accurate estimate. Mr. BadWrench: when you buy the unit... could you weigh it (in it's packaging) before you open it? Anyone else who bought the unit...

Re: PEAK Backup Camera 7 inch Screen

Greetings all... I've been interested in buying this unit for sometime now... but lack of available funds has stymied me. An hour ago I saw this listed on the Sam's Club website for $49.81 (at my local store). This seems to be a lot cheaper than anything found on ebay. My wife has a Sam's Club membe...

Re: Breakdown of the Galileo 5" LCD

Thanks for the info and I hope this works out for you! I was looking for a 4.5 or 5 inch screen that runs at 5 V, I didn't say this did. This probably needs 10 V. From the datasheets I was able to find on the 7808... you're probably right re: 10V minimum. However... if you removed the 7808 regulato...

Re: Breakdown of the Galileo 5" LCD

I went ahead and tested it again with video running. The values stayed constant (exactly as above, even during periods of intense graphics)... not even the slightest wavering. That's a touch odd... no? Jason As most of the power is the backlight, I wouldn't expect it to vary much when displaying vi...

Re: Breakdown of the Galileo 5" LCD

From what little I can read of the OM8361 datasheet... it looks like it'd be fairly easy to do a RGB mod on this screen.

From the IR3Y26A datasheet... the LCD itself uses RGB inputs.

Re: Breakdown of the Galileo 5" LCD

Well was that with anything running on it ? And did you have sound playing. If you did it's good, if not , it probably will be a lot higher if you did. The Galileo doesn't have audio. And no... I did not have video running to it while testing. I could retest with video running if you like... Just t...

Given that the majority of that is probably the CCFL... is that number good or bad?

Re: Breakdown of the Galileo 5" LCD

When measuring amperage. Set the meter to the amperage setting. Plug the leads into the appropriate amperage spot. Hook up ground. Then put the black lead on the power supplies positive wire, and the red lead on the area on the board where power + goes. The screen will turn on and the meter will sh...

Re: Breakdown of the Galileo 5" LCD

Thanks for the pics. But........ You left out some VERY important facts. I'll try to answer these... 1. How does it compare image quality wise to the Psone Lcd. I'm not a videophile... (eyes aren't that good)... however... overall I'd say it compares favourably. The main drawback to a glass LCD is ...
