Psone Scree: Weird Tint

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.

Psone Scree: Weird Tint

Post by GamecubePerson111 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 6:34 pm

I just recently ordered a psone screen and when i recieved it, i noticed a very weird tint on it. Normally colors that are red and orange are very pink when seen through the psone screen i just got. I tried a different lcd but it was still the same. Has anybody else had a problem like this? or know how i would go about trying to fix the tint on the screen? Thanks

Did you try the same output (VGA, Component, SVID w/e) with another non-PS1 lcd?

Sounds like you've lost all or part of the blue signals going to the LCD. Take it apart and reseat the LCD ribbon cable.

Well it had the tint when I recieved the screen and before I took it apart. Anyway I was touching some components on the back and when I touch this one component with my finger the colors are fine. When I touch the component with my finger, am I basically bypassing that component? What would I need to do for the colors to stay accurate eternally?

Well, show us the component - picture, video of you touching it and the colors changing, etc.

The component is labeled cv29 and when I touch the lower contact of it with a screw driver it corrects the colors on the screen.

Sounds like a bad solder joint, and the pressure from the screwdriver is making it connect. If you have a fine point soldering iron, reheat the solder on each side of the component until it flows again and take the iron away, that should re-establish the connection permanently.

I'm barely applying any pressure but I'll try desoldering the joint.

Does touching it with the screwdriver still correct the colors?

Pics and vid, please - they would help a lot.
