switching psone/zenith lcds

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.

also there is a very small portion of plastic above the transformer which looks like it doesnt have any traces. i cut this off of my zenith screen because its the only way it will fit. Could this have broken my back light? i dont think i tested it after i cut off that small top portion of the screen.
