alright guys, what do i need and what do i not(pics inside)

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

the screen is useless, as you cant input composite video. the batteries are just fine, although they might be a bit low capacity for something like a psone. i recommend getting tact switches that are all the same, as it makes mounting much easier, though those will work, if you insist on using them. :wink:
the jacks and other switches are all useful too. i recommend keeping all of the stuff like that you come across.

ahh alright thanks, as for batteries, cant i connect them in a way to make it as if it were one battery making the total voltage 7.4v? or is it still low capacity for a psone.

Are you sure? I see headphones, composite out, but what is the third 3.5mm jack. Looks like composite in to me ?

soo the screen is usable yes? annd whats the thing on the left side idk what that is

i put the motherboard next to the case and the switch(2nd to last) says av in out as for the yellow its video. also, can you guys help me find a common tact switch on http://mouser.com. i dont really know what im supposed to look for

edit: are those batteries combined not enough to power a playstation portable with white LED mods? and the lcd screen is a light box bulb type, im really unfamiliar with all the stuff thats going on with it like the ribbon cable attached and the other thing attached to it, anyone know what they are?
