Re: If the screen requires a different voltage to the system...

How do you power it? I know you can use a higher voltage PSU and the system will take what it needs, but does it regulate the voltage at some point? I want to use a 12v screen with a 9v PC Engine. Just considering that this could be a problem. Bad idea! You're confusing Volts and Amps. More Volts m...

Found a 4.5" 4:3 TFT LCD screen that takes composite.

Pretty good eh? Only problem might be thickness (although that bezel looks pretty deep), and the 12v.

But I think that's as good as it gets.

Re: Is this necessary? screen quetions

As for how much power it saves... It depends what you're replacing.

For instance, the Nomad screen mod saves loads of power, because the original light source was some kind of gas tube, which is really inefficient. Generally LEDs are very efficient.

4.5/5" screen

Does anyone know of the availability of a hackable screen this size? 4.5" would be ideal, but the size of any circuitry can't exceed 5.5" because I want a bezel.

Portable PC Engine - LT?

Wow, I never thought I'd be on here. I've always wanted a PC Engine LT, and I think it would actually be quite easy and cheap to make one. I've seen some RGB mods for the white PCE, and while I have no idea how the screens themselves work, I'd imagine it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to integrat...
