    thanks for the screenie. There is no such option with my ati 9600, for some reason. Apparently there seems to something like that with ati catalyst. However I just still can't get it to work for some reason. :sigh: Even though everything is connected properly.

    I need some help. My vga cable that I bought has different color wires than the one in the how-to. I have red, blue, green, brown, white, black, and orange. Red, blue, and green are bigger then the other 4. With just the red, blue, and green soldered to where the color code says I get a constant flurry of downward flashes on the lcd screen. Can someone tell me where I am suppose to solder the black, white, orange, and brown wires? Thanks!

    You also need a ground for the RGB wires. You'll have to break out the multi-meter and find which pins are grounds and what color wire they go to.

    my lcd mod

    hey all, this is my first case mod ive ever done.
    after using this and other sites i decided to make my own lcd mod
    check out my site for full pictures and what.

    http://aarons_webpage.tripod.com/lcd/1.html

    i went with a s-video -> rca -> 3.5mm jack
    my card is retail ati 9600xt 128mb

    took about 20-30 hours i think. but lots of fun
    let me know what you think

    i didnt need to use power strip, the new catalyst software took care of everything

    I have a question on how to use the two connectors on the main psb for S-video without having the little pcb and power connector dangling off of it.

    Does anyone know the id of each wire on the 12 pin connector? I could not find a circuit diagram with this information.

    Here is a pic of the main pcb connectors, both have a red rectangle around them:
    [​IMG]

    The white plugs at the bottom of the main pcb, just below the lcd.

    My goal is to connect a S-video cable and 7.5v power source to it, getting rid of the mini pcb, powerplug, and possible the right ribbon connector all together.

    I guess if any of you want a easy way to get a 4" LCD working this might be the way.

    I haven't seen it in use so I can't say how good the pic is.

    Easy hook up

    Stupid question maybe?!

    Hi all,

    I too am really interested in this mod, and have done the S-Video to RCA to 3.5mm jack method to get it up and running. It works fairly well in my opinion, however I would like to have a bit better quality, and as such go the VGA way...

    So I got a 15 pin vga cable (Which has pin 9 as I am in UK using a PAL Sony LCD) and I cut off one end. All good so far... now however there are several thicker wires, three of which have their own shielding and are red green and blue in colour, so I assume thats what they are!

    But for the other wires, and essentially pin 9, how do I test the pins to find out which is which?! I know it involves a multimeter but how do you apply voltage to it etc?!

    This is really simple to some people just not me!!

    Thanks

    Set your voltmeter to continuity, it should beep when the two probes touch. If your multimeter doesn't have this setting, set it to resistance and when there's no contact it'll skyrocket, when a contact is made it'll go down to a few mΩ.

    Using either method, touch one probe to a pin on the socket, and using the other go round the exposed wires until you get a hit, labeling them as you go.

    Most monitor cables don't carry pin 9 any more, so if it's missing you have to find an alternative source of 5v to switch the screen on. There's a few posts about this (with pictures :) ) back in the thread (~page 19 I think).

    problems!

    Hi,

    I found the right wires and attempted the solder... my god is it hard...

    Has anyone got a good method of actually getting it right...

    I ended up with a huge blob of solder which went across multiple pins... solder sucker got rid of it though so I am back to square one!!

    How do people do this?!

    Is there anywhere in the UK where I could even send it to get it done?!

    This is easy:

    1) make sure you have some solder on your tip.

    2) Put the wire onto the solder area (use something heavy to pin the wire down)

    3) Place the soldering iron tip on the wire/pcb and quickly tap with your soldering wire until it melts.

    4) Gentally pull the soldering iron tip off the wire/pcb.

    If all goes acording to plan, you should end up with a nice neat connection :D

    Hello all, im from spain and this is my first post :blush: ,i read the entire thread (my eyes are broken :eeek: ), some days ago i bought a lcd screen, i did the mod and my x850xt pe vivo didnt reconized the lcd.

    Ah finaly i can ask my question,

    ok 1st hello, i'm new i've been trying for 2 days to sort out my old account so i gave up and made a new one. so hello!

    ok here's my problem. my screen is hooked up to a d-sub on and AGP 5200, it turns on but it flickers like mad and the screen is split....don't really know how to put it. insted of the edges being at the edge their in the middle. so i get left hand side on the right and the right hand side on the left with a big black line down the middle. i've chacked the wireing a few times but to no avail. i know the screen works. unless i busted it when i opened it. i don't know what to do. also it's a pal screen (U.K.) so i don't know if that makes a diffrence??

    any idea what to do.
