Got a raw monitor, what to do with it?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My father bought me and my brother this AIO PC back then, used it mainly for Battlefield 2. When the graphic card died we put it aside. years later I found it and took the whole thing apart. I've got the speakers, TV tuners and all of that jazz. I've also taken out the monitor that came with it. It looks like it's in 100% working condition too, but I have no idea how to test if it works / Use it myself

Here's a picture of it front & back..

Any idea? It's a LTM170W1 - L02

You could use it as a video preview (for youtube videos and such), if you have one monitor and you are into video editing.

I was wondering how I would get it to power on, and at that, get picture from a display output. Are there any ways? Do I have to buy something for it?
Also, nice name tongue.gif

Could you give us closeups from the connectors?

The yellow and black wires are power for the backlight (CCFLs), but we need to know which interface does the screen use in order to make it work.

Although it's very likely it'll be a LVDS and you'll need a rather expensive converter.


Edit: Upon further googling it appears it IS a LVDS panel. You'll need to find a converter on eBay to make it work. The panel operates at 3.3V, so remember to set that on the converter.

Might I ask what the converter name is? Thanks for your help smile.gif

Edit - Just checked, is it this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/5251-Audio-LCD-Controller-Board-laptop-LVDS-DVI-VGA-/280895597020?pt=US_Server_Boards&hash=item4166aea9dc#ht_10580wt_1140
