Re: Potential source of 2" LCDs

I know there was some talk going around in mid 2007 or so about this, but it suddenly died. No idea if anything came to fruition, but somebdy had gotten a PDF or some such for the screens.

3. smoke started coming out of it =[ Generally when electronics start smoking... yeah, they are busted. The only thing that is GOOD to smoke, is wood if you are making a fire. Your GBC is busted. Next time, try using a proper screwdriver to open it up. Be careful- things can be fragile. And never p...

Samsung. Love their hard drives.

The company I work for. It'd suck to have to suddenly find a new job.

When you say the CD spindle is broken on the PS1 phats, is it unable to hold a CD, or is it unable to read them?

Regarding NOACs- those are legal, but almost certainly not authorized by Nintendo. The hardware patents can no longer cover the equipment as it is 20+ years old. Software patents on the other hand, don't expire for something like 99 years... It is legal, so far as I know, to mod equipment and sell i...

I would assume right after where image processing would be ideal for clarifying and strengthening the red line; omitting the other line (or somehow blanking them out, idk). Of course, you'd need a way to strengthen and clarify it without boosting the voltage beyond anything that can safely display i...

I'd just like to say- Learn how to punctuate what you type. Throw some grammar in while you're at it, and add a sprinkling of correct spelling. In the game of REAL LIFE nobody cares about you but a select few that you keep around you. Sadly, much of this is also true on the internet, save where a fe...

Anyhow, if it has a wire passing through it, I'd assume it's an RF filter, to help "clean up" the line of outside interference (electromagnetic interference, radio interference, whatever).

No idea what VTERM stands for :( Some google searching and what not- U15 is an MX8330 chip, which means it is a RAMBUS clock generator. A datasheet is located here ; I have no reasons to think this is a 'correct' or 'incorrect' datasheet, as I don't even have the knowledge to explain how a transisto...

Aye, they split it with a ground in between (I am assuming) in order to give it a low impedance signal. Something like those torrodial coils you see on power supply plugs, or if you prefer, those neat rings with wire lazily wound around them on your motherboard (I think they still do that at any rat...
