    I did some more test and found out that when it was connected to a DVD output via video(yellow) cable there was no screen display.When I connected the audio cables(red\white) the screen lit up.I could remove the red cable and still the screen lit up but if I removed the white cable the screen was dead.I also tried this using a S-video cable and again I only got the screen to lit up when the white audio cable was connected.
    So for some reason it needs the white audio cable to be connected for the screen to lit up.
    I connected the white audio cable to my speakers and now the ATI Catalyst control centre detects (not forced)the psone lcd but it won't enable it.

    Anyone got suggestions.

    I have now managed to get the psone lcd to display windows when the main monitor is disconnected.
    Also when in the control centre you can swap the 2 screens and it does this ok but will not enable the other screen.

    Any ideas?

    Solved the problem
    The card is a duel monitor display.
    I connected the main monitor to the other socket and problem solved both screens displaying windows or extended desktop.

    I can only think that I had my main monitor in socket 2 and the TV output is socket 2 so you could not enable 2 outputs from the same socket .I hope you understand what I mean.
    You would not have thought it would matter what socket you use as there was nothing in the instructions.

    My LCD mod, finally

    Can you believe it? This took 3 YEARS! ok, so maybe it took 20 hours, but after the first 15 hours, it sat on the back burner(so to speak) for three years. I can't tell you how good it feels to finish something like this. I don't even know how to top this. What else could I ever do, that could be on this level. I guess I'll never pick up a Dremel again.
    Maybe I'll learn to paint good.

    Display via composite is black & white - any tips?

    Hi.
    Last year I modded a PSOne LCD to work using VGA - it was awesome!
    Now I have a new computer and I have to switch to composite video, due to change of graphics card (8800GTS... oh yeah!)
    It's all working: I have a picture on my screen. However... it is BLACK & WHITE! :(
    Any suggestions?
    Cheers,
    Dan.

    PS It is a PAL LCD and I am sending it a PAL signal.

    Mine is sitting here in pieces as well. I would really like to get this going ASAP. Only problem is I am not very good at soldering and I am afraid to mess things up beyond repair. but I guess ineed to get it done or throw it away. I need t go back thru this thread and find the links to the instruction on how to set this up with the eprom chip as that is how I would like to do this so it will work with any video card. I do have a matrox video card that I bought just for this mod but that was before I found out about the eeprom mod.

    I am looking for some spare parts, I basicly need the smaller PCB with the connectors on it and the wireing harneses. If you have a busted Screen and would like to sell it please drop me an E-mail. diablo2k@kc.rr.com

    Also I keep seeing people saying they have theres hooked up via S-Video but when I look at there pics or diagrams I see that they dont have Svideo hooked up, ony the RCA video connection, they may have it hooked up to a Svideo source via an adapter but none actually have S-Video hooked up. Does anyone have the proper hookups to use with a true S-Video source, I have a plug that has 4 wires, red, grey, black, and ground/shield that I can use that I took off something else.

    Hey all :) This thread brings back many memories...

    Now as some of you might know, I intend to run a portable, low power EPIA system, and I was hoping to use one of these as the primary screen (whilst in portable mode). Now as far as I am aware, the VGA output of the lower end Mini-ITX EPIA boards is rather inferior... so I presume that they do not support csync? :confused:

    If so, there are two ways I could go...
    Either I get a PCI Graphics card, like the ones described here:
    Or better,

    Or I find another way to get csync working...

    Right? Which makes more sense?

    Another concern of mine is power consumption. If I am to run this off a battery, my first concern is that the battery has enough umph to power the system, and I'm afraid that an additional graphics card might be too much of a drain... although it would help with DVD playback... Does anyone have any idea how much power is consumed by an old school graphics card, like a Radeon 7000? With a heat sink that small, it can't be much...

    Any help is greatly appreciated,
    MGT

    EDIT: And BTW doki ^, that is a pretty awesome guide ;)

    I try to connect the PSONE lcd to my HD4870 as a secondery monitor.
    the backlight turns on the brightness\volume sliders work but the computer wont recognize the lcd and i cant a picture on it...

    Hi all,

    I've picked up 2 original Sony PSOne LCDs (PAL) to use in my sim cockpit (http://pitblog.radsy.com). I soldered one up last night using the original starfox instructions but I get nada when I power it up. It doesn't even look like the backlight is coming on, I get no sign of life at all from the LCD.

    Is this normal? I've tested my soldering with a multimeter and the right pins are connected (VGA 1,2,3 for RGB, VGA 6,7,8 grounded, VGA 9 for DCC and VGA 13 for Csync).

    I read elsewhere that VGA 5 (http://www.pcmodz.info/viewtopic.php?id=159) should also be grounded, though I'm not sure if that's only for NTSC or if it applies to PAL?

    I'm guessing also that my video cards might be a problem. I've tried my GeForce FX 5200 PCI (without a CSync adapter) and nada as expected, but also my AGP Radeon 9600 gives nothing.

    Any hints?

    Cheers

    I've just purchased a Matrox G200 on eBay to cut the video card problem out of the loop. Does anyone know if the Matrox drivers (or Powerstrip) allow you to rotate the display 90' to run it at 576x720 in portrait?

    I want to use it as my ABRIS for Black Shark.
