Help me figure out the composite input on this screen

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.

Well te VCR is already apart i took it apart in a hurry all exicted a couple nights ago..... so i guess my only other choice is wiring the screen up to a new power source and using somthing that uses composite output to test it?

Can someone tell me a way without putting the vcr back together to test it?

Bottom line: We need the highest resolution, biggest picture you can get of the entire screen/circuit board so we can see where everything connects. Without that, we can't help you.

My guess is it's the yellow wire. Connect video to there, see what happens. Otherwise, piece things together. That's the trick to modding stuff - see where the video input originally was, follow the trace and see where it goes on the circuit board. Most likely, it's the yellow wire there. Connect your video to where the yellow wire is connected. Worth a try.
