Title: CCFL Backlight Issues
Post by: PersonRocks on July 19, 2014, 01:27:32 AM
Hi!

I'm working on a DIY Cintiq and basically my brother stepped on the backlight bulb, and now I need a new one.

I'm using an LP150e05 A2 K1 Monitor (Same as K-Jintiq) and Looking on ebay I can only find backlights for lp150e01,2,3,4,6,7 (substitute 1 for 2,3 etc.) Here are the two backlights I'm looking at.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NEW-CCFL-Backlight-With-Wire-Harness-for-LG-LP150E01-LP150E02-LP150E03-15-LCD-/271422222475?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f3206708b&_uhb=1

My question is: Will either of these backlights work with the LP150e05, even though it's not in the list of compatible monitors?

Thanks, I appreciate any help.

Hi PersonRocks,

It seems to me that the backlights you have found will work with your screen, but changes made to the chassis of the panel between variations might mean it won't fit directly. Usually this isn't a problem for a DIY Cintiq builder as we remove most of the chassis anyway.

For reassurance they all share the same dimensions, they all use ccfl bulbs the same length, and the are all driven the same electrically (looking at the datasheets).

Hope that helps.

Hi Aerendraca!

Thanks for the help! My main concern was just the electric requirements, and I couldn't find the data.


Once again, thanks!
