ok i will reconnect all and see what happens Smiley bu i doubt that will fix because the lcd quality is very poor! because of that i want to made a new project and try use only the tablet from the cintiq 15"  is the other projects work with wacom intuous 2 and others i think this tablet will work on new lcd screen too and made a new and custom case for it.

because of that i ask you you opinion about what lcd screen do you recommend and his lcd controller kit to power it up?

i understand bernard but for me is more easy now buy a new 15" LCD and his lcd controller kit and made the modifications of the case to fit it! and tablet panel behind the lcd and shield like the original one! a made as the same way of the projects here, because of that i need know what lcd panels that have good results in the members projects! that we can find on ebay

Your thinking about changing the LCD is good and realistic.  But fixing the original LCD is also another effort I think is worth the try. 

I see the photos you taken:  Is it close to what you see in reality?  How would you qualify the issues you have?  Here I see:

- I see "vertical bars" everywhere -- but maybe this is just because we are looking at a photo?
- everything looks purple-ish
- the green channel seems the problematic one. In the middle of the bar, it sort fails. I mean the "high" portion is not showing as high.

Take more shots:
- Take a very-close shot (if you can) -- enough to distinguish the little LCD Red Green Blue dots. Want to check if we see a pattern here. Especially in problematic areas.
- Change the resolution of the screen to something smaller -- like 800x600 -- It might give a hint on which portion of the circuitry is failing (inside the LCD Panel or is it the LVDS board). Take a shot of the RGB bars with that.
- (probably it won't do anything in your case but have you tried changing the frequency of the monitor?  60Hz, 75Hz)



bernard

the photos is almost the same in reality! the quality of the lcd is very poor is like the old´s tft that we see in the 1º´s notebook you remember it?
i tried everthing you say change 800X600 and the frequemcy but is the same the only thing that solve it is reduce all de brightness and contrast to 0!!
because of that i want change the LCD for a new one. what is the best choise?:

- buy a 15" notebook LCD and the LCD controller kit or a 15" TFT monitor and disassemble it?

That looks like a bad connection. (it does not mean it is easy to repair)

It might be possible to replace the LCD Panel without changing the electronics inside (LVDS driver, inverter) -- but you'd have to find either the exact same LCD Panel component or one with the same specifications.

Bonus: If you change the LCD and you snap in another LVDS driver, then you might be able to augment the resolution of the screen.

One thing for sure:  if you open your product, I will ask you to take a few measurements so we learn a bit more about Wacom Cintiqs.  Grin

If you give up on your Cintiq, then don't throw it away: someone will buy the Wacom portion of it.  Roll Eyes

my ideia is find a complete 15" LCD monitor with LVDS driver etc to change with the cintiq one, basically do the same process would have to do by join an lcd with a tablet, drawing on the Cintiq tablet and put on the new lcd and LVDS.

here are the tests with the bars:





From the LCD OSD (On Screen Display menu), if you change the brightness (and contrast) -- as in lowering then -- does some of the artifact go away?



bernard : chanching the brightness and contrast to 0 solve the this problem! Smiley but the lcd is very dark when i find the 15" lcd i will trie change the monitor

i will open the cintiq and take some photos for you!
