The Wacom's digitizer is easy to take out the problem is that the digitizer interface chips are on the motherboard and you cant really remove them or even really find them.


Looking at the way digitizers work they seem to need a interface board

From what I have worked out playing my my 20 pound faulty and smashed to bits toshiba 3500 the tablet is a Wacom serial digitizer with a 10 cable connection 3 are power +-G and found 7 for the data. My testing of the digitizer has been pretty limited because I'm waiting on some stuff from ebay and its taking ages.

And as Drewis says "it would be a task and a half, but in theory." I would have to agree with him its a pretty tough job since the laptop mother board has so much stuff on its its pretty hard to track down what dose what. Wink but us bongofish cant let wacom beat us now can we Tongue

They have 10.4" flat screens for like cars and stuff you could try one of them they are pretty cheap on ebay and then you dont need the whole laptop LVCD thing. But I never looked inside a smal flat screen so could be all shielding....

The problem is wiht the size of the tablet not because its low end I'm not sure if you have the small or med size but Im guessing you would need a 7" inch screen that is pretty small. but you might be able to buy an in car tv screen or even mod an old ps1 screen and make it work but color might be a problem. Some people like fl0 have used small tablets on 15" screens and just maped it to a small part of the screen but again its a bit usless since you still need a mouse to use the rest of the screen.

Hi this is a bit off topic but how do you find running photoshop on an Ibook? I'm thinking of using a smashed up ibook for my build a g4 1.33 ghz 12.1" one just wanted to know how fast it is for some basic photoshop work?

well you cant get 12v off usb its max is +-5v but you could maybe take a power plug from your power supply in your pc case and tap into the 12v output but you might be better off with an external power supply.

I all ready got a tablet I'm just trying to find out how the usb to serial adaptors work. if I can its kind of hard to explain my build because its a bit different want to see if it can work before I post a build log.
10  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / serial to usb how well dose it work? on: May 04, 2008, 03:46:32 PM
I got a project on the go and IM trying to find out how well the serial to usb adaptors work. I will be using a mac for the final build so will have to find a mac version one. But how do they work dose it just take 8 cables to 4 or is there some kind of chip going on inside the case? Tongue and my last question is what drivers do you use usb version or serial version?

the white stuff is called styrofoam


And I have seen that problem before but it ran from top to bottom in the middle of the screen. I would have to say your screen maybe dead you have gone along and checked every cable even pushed on the pcb/ribbion that goes from pcb to the glass screen. Maybe its just me but its hard to kill a lcd screen I have fixed ones in worse shape that that but really I need hands on exp to fix them poking random bits till you see some change in pic then working out what + what makes the pic better because you cant really get any worse. Smiley

good luck and sorry I cant be much help

well if switz says its not a pressure mark then the plastic back might be coming up and so the black light messes up. I would just rub it lightly or push down a bit on the screen to see what happens just don't push so hard as to crack it
14  Screen Tablet malarky / Design issues / Re: best value for parts on: April 27, 2008, 12:46:45 PM
he says its a serial not a ps2 so he should just need serial to usb converter like Drew used :S
15  Screen Tablet malarky / Build Logs / Re: Starts whit an disaster on: April 27, 2008, 12:43:36 PM
