I just purchased my 5"ps1 lcd and have recieved it and i will be takin it apart this weekend and starting the projector construction. i'll give the update on the specs then etc.. i'll post some pics soon.
hay there mate just watching your thread and i to have just got one of these psone screens as my lilliput 7" has deicied to crack it,this is all i could get hold of untill i can get a bit more funds together,now i dont know to much about these lcd screens and so i guess ill be watching to see how you go with yours but heres a question,are you going to do the vga mod or rca mod that ive been hearing about or do you know of a way that you can conect the dvd player or pc to the lcd????any way good luck with your project,check out myne if your interested its all most complete,well was untill the screen played up.......
i'am goning to try to have both inputs, as for hooking it up to my dvd player it works fine i use a stero 3.5mm to composite video\audio which plugs right into the back of any vcr and dvd player though this wire does not come with the screen.
I was thinking about buying one of these used from a buddy of mine. Was wondering if there is by any chance a plastic or plexi cover or anything to prevent the lcd from directly being scratched or if the lcd is right out in the open? (His is pretty scratched up..) Thanks for any info. And keep up the good work on the project.
well i'am putting off my project for a while now i went to a party yesterday and got really high and met this amazinly hot gurl, and now i have no time 4 this projector but i will restart it soon, i hope
the link works fine but if not for you heres the info
