1  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: can anyone help with a pin to pin schematic of the Cintiq 15x usb lead on: July 31, 2010, 07:47:23 PM
Traced pins from mini-din to connector

Pin
1     pin 14 on connector
2     pin 16
3     pin 15
4     pin 17 (ground - you were right Bernard)

Off to the shops tomorrow to get a decent multitester as the continuity tester I used has probes the size of a bulls foot - not good for twiddling about on circut boards.

I found the cypress chip CY7C63101A and have the data sheet - I am well on my way to trace where it's pins 15,16,14 and 9 correspond to 15 through 17 on the FFC connector and then wire up the usb cable and Bob's your uncle I'm back in business.

I presume this is the Wacom pen tablet circuit board?

For someone who has never had the heart to even consider tracing back through circuits (see first post), I found it quite enjoyable - I might take this further and try mending other bosted electronic bits I have. Shame I already have a Cintiq - reading through the posts it looks real fun building one from bits.

It was quite easy to take apart - so far.

These are the two sockets :- USB on the left and serial on the right.

Pcb tracks from those sockets to connector.

Wacom board with connector lead removed.

Hope these are of help.

Yes it is a four pin mini DIN (same as S-vid).

I haven't got the serial lead any more so that will be not possible - it is a different variant (nine pin mini DIN).

I will endeavour to take the back off the tablet and take some piccy's of it's innards and post them ASAP.

Thanks for your help so far.

Hi,
 
I had me 'puter nicked by some lowlife, they left my cintiq thinking it was some worthless old monitor (phew) but ripped out the leads. I have replaced the DVI lead but can't seem to get my hands on a replacement USB lead, no one in the world seems to stock it as the 15X is now deemed obsolete. Wacom are not much help and wont divulge their secrets.
 I have a suitable USB lead and a 4 pin mini din but I haven't the heart to start playing russian roulette with my tablet and new 'puter by guessing where the wires go or pulling it apart to trace the pcb tracks. Can anyone put me back on the road to e-drawing again, I find it so much harder and time consuming to create using the mouse or old analogue techniques. I had thought about shelling out some dosh on a plain tablet just to get me through until I chanced upon this site.

If anyone can help I would be very greatful.

Hi,

I use my Sony e-reader to display my photo's (800x600 and a very good tonal range, shame it's not in colour though) - lasts for weeks on one charge if the photos are stored on the internal memory.
