1  Screen Tablet malarky / Build Logs / Re: Martiq on: July 31, 2012, 02:43:44 PM
9 months on, I reply  Grin. Pretty much, I've found that you always open an LCD from the top, not the sides and opening at the bottom will cause damage to the flex cables. In the end I got my old ITSX95c panel open by lifting at the top, and it required much more force than I was originally comfortable with. This project has actually made me very comfortable with LCDs, I've replaced a lot of broken laptop screens and they always seem to get broken from a twisting motion (except in the case of one acer laptop in which the LCD literally had shattered like a car windshield).

Anyway, I'm posting to say that I bought an ITUX97H UXGA panel on ebay (for US$18!?!? I can't even find 15" desktop displays in NZ for that much any more!). I just spent the last two hours getting my XP installation/the programmer software to work. The result:

[attachment=2]

This panel impresses me for a TN laptop panel from 2001, the viewing angles are not that bad and the gamma isn't hopelessly high. The jitter at 60Hz is very noticeable as per the pictures, hopefully 59 or 50Hz and proper grounding will help here. I only used part of the screen as I haven't torn down the panel at all (which could also be causing jitter).

This should be fun  Smiley

Okay, I just attempted to disassemble the LCD housing as it was full of metal. The metal bezel appeared to have been bent around the plastic part of the housing at the bottom. I couldn't figure out any other way to separate the two parts without bending this metal bezel back. So I attempted to, which resulted in cracking the screen. The funny thing is, even after cracking the screen and reverting to sheer force, I still couldn't get the metal bezel off!

Well, I guess I will be purchasing another HP 1501 as soon as I see one for sale in NZ.

I found that http://www.pchub.com are fairly good.

The longer it remains undone, the more I want it to be done  Tongue

This project isn't dead, but it will be a while before I can start it again as I'm now at university, first year software engineering.  Cheesy
I ended up buying the programmer from NYJtouch and after a lot of "choose random program with 1400x1050 resolution and 15" size then burn to controller", I got it to work with my panel. Initial jitter tests without any grounding or removal metal strips on LCD housing showed jitter, hopefully when I get back to this I can make it all go away. I should have probably updated back in March when I did this, but I forgot. Hopefully, persistence will reap rewards!

These are no longer of any use to me as I'm now using a laptop screen:
Two 50pin, 0.5mm, 350mm FFCs with extender boards from DIY-Beamer
I'm looking for about US$25 for both excluding shipping. Shipping will be from NZ.

If you looking for 50pin, 0.5mm pitch, 350mm cables, I have two left over if your interested.

Finding a controller for a screen like that might not be hard, but it would be very expensive!

Besides the T-Shirt, in that video, Ben Heck butchers an LCD's power board to remove the AC/DC converter/transformer. I'm thinking that we could do the same thing to for our builds. So perhaps an external power supply isn't really necessary when searching for a suitable monitor for a cintiq build  Cheesy

Back from holiday,
The quote I got for shipping that controller was NZ$8 each way (without the cables and etc, its very small!), which is much less than NZ$80 for the programmer. I'll send NJYTouch some emails, hopefully they will offer me something even after 5 months.

Also, with that jitter, have you tried covering the controller in aluminium foil + cling wrap? Many people here have tried it, but I'm not sure if it works as usually their problem was with the panel itself creating interference.

I live in New Zealand, but paying for the postage of my controller to and from you would be far cheaper than buying a new controller. If you get it working, you will be my new personal hero  Wink
Could you please attach/upload one of those .gff files? I'm curious as to what is in them.

Out of interest, did the panel work first time after burning on the program corresponding to your panel? I informed them The idea that the controller was't not programmed at all and they were on some sort of default firmware popped into my head.

NJYTouch did offer to sell me a programmer and told me it might be possible to fix it when I informed them of this problem (The problem seemed to confuse Christina, she first said that she did not understand why the controller was failing and that she would have to consult an engineer. The answer i got back was fairly vague, "it has the wrong program").
However I choose not to buy it as it would cost the same as the LCD and controller combined and because the exact model of LCD I have isn't listed on their page (they list an ITSX95L2, I have an ITSX95C).

How hard was it to program that controller correctly? My controller also displays an image just fine, but at the wrong resolution and with weird image cropping.
14  Screen Tablet malarky / Build Logs / Re: Martiq on: September 06, 2010, 08:55:44 AM
60Hz I believe. A full datasheet for the panel can be found here: http://www.pdfsea.com/down/down.php?downid=11378&id=0

I used the nvidia drivers to get a custom resolution. It just meant that the image gets stretched out bigger than the LCD's physical dimensions. To me, it really sounds like something that could be fixed by reprogramming the controller as they displayed multiple screen sizes being supported. Maybe they choose the wrong screen size? The mControl program didn't detect the LVDS controller at all.

MonInfo provided me with some interesting details. The timings it listed aren't anything like those of the actual LCD.
  Horizontal scan range.... 64-104kHz
  Vertical scan range...... 56-76Hz
  Video bandwidth.......... 180MHz
  CVT standard............. Not supported
  GTF standard............. Not supported
  Additional descriptors... None
  Preferred timing......... No
  Detailed timing #1....... 1920x1200p at 60Hz (16:10)
    Modeline............... "1920x1200" 154.000 1920 1968 2000 2080 1200 1203 1209 1235 -hsync -vsync

Also, it claims that the screen size is: "Undefined or variable".
