Ahh you got a great deal then, well done .

Its a shame about lcd's, they should cost far less then what they do, we all get ripped off on those at times.

Speak for yourse...wait. i did get ripped off on one (in my eyes - $120) but my other panel which I don't use I got for $23 iirc. Datashow AV back before I had anything to actually project with I should find a use for that thing.

Now watch me blow $600 or so next year on a UXGA panel (unless prices don't drop enough for my expectations and stay where they currently are)

-----------

Georgie, what lcd did you get? A monitor to strip? Projection panel?

Hi Georgie, thank you very much for the information.

I have the Lilliput LCD stripped, is not very difficult to do, but be very carefull with the brown flat cable ! I use the metal frame that holds the LCD to protect it (live bfourcade !).

I tested my PJ last week with all the optics in line (without any mirror) direct to a white wall and with a provisory cardboard case, it works OK. This weekend I change the layout to use a mirror in order to reduce the size. Perhaps I can test it this night

I Bought an LCD Monitor 7", lilliput like, another brand though.
The good thing about it, is that you can flip the image, so I can put the lcd screen anyway I want in the projector and then flip the image with a button.

Ill be stripping the lcd on wednesday...

Andronico,

Yes I want to use a mirror also...It significantly reduces the overall size.
I read that you need a First Surface Mirror.
Do you know where to buy one?
And I also need a UV Filter, cause the light of the MH lamp produces a lot of UV Rays that are harmful to the LCD.
Do you know where to buy one?
Thanks!

Georgie :

I bought the first surface mirror at American Science & Surplus (www.sciplus.com). The code is #2579, the size 160 x 183 mm and the price is US $ 3.5.- They have projection lenses also.

I'll test with a normal mirror because I want to check the minimum size needed to project. And then cut the FS mirror to this size. About UV protection, I'm using a Powerstar HQI-TS 150W/NDL with UV Stop, and a 8cm. PC cooler taking hot air out. I checked the temperature of the LCD with an electronic tester with temp probe, and after 1 hour of projection the max. temp was 40 celcius grades. I think that is not bad but perhaps I can improve it.


Georgie, which is the brand of your LCD ?

P.S : you can email me directly if you want to use our native language

Georgie,

My guess that 1024x468 was a typo and its actually 1024x768.
Is that the native resolution, or is it compressed like on the Lilliput? also, when you say flip, which way does it flip, horizontally or vertically, i.e. left to right or top to bottom?

(if its left to right, thats a very useful feature, incase you want to use your projector for Rear projection, just hit the button and you got the image the right way around for rp, hit is again, and you got it right for fp!)

I dont know exactly, the users manual is pretty vague. It says 1024x234. I hope thats enough...is it?

4 ways:
Normal
Left to right
Top to bottom
Top to Bottom and left to right combined.
