1  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Laptop screen to wacom cintiqfor drawing on: June 14, 2017, 02:57:53 PM
The difference is in the chip they use - some have the Realtek RTD2660 chip, others have a VST29 which i haven't of and the third use the Novatek NT68676 found in some njytouch controllers. All of them will probably work fine.
im gonna buy the italian One with all' kit It Will bè 70€ Shocked

I've had success with this one - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/HDMI-LVDS-Controller-Board-40-Pins-Lvds-Cable-Kits-for-Raspberry-PI-3-LP156WH2-TLA1-TLE11366/32645792288.html

It gets hot at the 12V to 5V regulator but other than that it works ok. Check what's available on Aliexpress - often stuff is cheaper than eBay, and the controllers all come from the same chinese manufacturers. If you're willing to wait that is.

I know, right? I've been pondering the cheap DTZs on eBay, but everyone seems to think the Intuos 4 Cintiqs are miles apart. There's still a very good chance this thing is inoperable (or will be after I get my soldering iron in there), so don't count me too lucky yet.  Cheesy

Not really, i'd say they're just as good - it's just that DTK versions are usually more rare and expensive. I have a 12WX (DTZ-1200) here and there's honestly not much of a difference between it and the DTU-tech used in older Cintiqs and common TabletPC's. Most noticeable difference is that the grip pen is much nicer and with 2 buttons. The hover distance and report rate are better on DTZ but those don't matter as much.

The main issue I have read about the 21UX is that the screen is not spectacular and that it still shows some jitter on the borders (it still is a CCFL backlit panel, I fear).

My 12WX does jitter in the right side, that may be where the CCFL is. Corner-jitter is actually worse compared to a TabletPC digitizer and i don't know why! TabletPC digitizers are supposed to be "cheaper" but i really like their overall performance.

Aw man, DTK version too... I'm jelly.  Roll Eyes

It's a 4-pin DIN connector, they use em for appliances that draw a lot of power at low voltages like 12V or so (Cintiq needs 7A). As with all these round DIN connectors the pin arrangement has different variations of the same pin count, but it shouldn't be too hard to find one from places like aliexpress or local electronics stores.

If it were me, i would not mess with epoxy or such compounds unless i have to. Normally when you buy secondhand there is always a "matte stain" in the middle where most of the drawing happens. The 21UX-es come with a plastic film coating on the glass in order to simulate a "paper like feel" and it gets worn out pretty quickly. But, with some patience it can be peeled off completely - after that you just need to place a screen protector over the bare glass and it should look as good as new. Here's a link for reference.

Yeah, if it's metal there it's a lost cause. Guess i haven't dealt with many modern laptops as the ones i've opened have always been plastic on the back.

1) It's possible, but you normally won't find them alone. Most of the time they come with the LCD screen as one unit like in the link.
2) That will be tricky because nobody here has much experience with the newer-generation digitizers like on the T734. It's very likely they're USB, but the pinout is a mystery. The AES digitizer likely uses USB as well, so you may be able to get away with splicing its cable and routing it to the EMR digitizer instead. The EMR digitizer itself just peels off and you should be able to stick it to the back of the Dell screen if the size matches and there are no obstructions.
8  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Wacom alternatives on: April 18, 2017, 08:57:40 PM
Older Wacom digitizers (especially the Intuos 3 series) seem to be available pretty cheaply used (I got an A4 version for 25€ and a A5 version for 20€ some time ago).
As for alternatives there are quite a few but most of which I tried didn't come close to Wacom (I heard some good things about XP-Pen and Huion but I never tried those two).

The digitizers yes, but the pens (ZP series) are rather expensive, more than the KP-series for the Intuos 4 tablets. If you can find an Intuos 3 with a pen at a reasonable price, it's a bargain. They are mostly 4:3 though.

The T731 digitier looks like one of those newer generation ones, so it may be USB. Not much info on the pinout for those sadly... Have you tried testing with a multimeter or peeling back the cable to see how many of those pins are actually connected to anything?
10  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Suitable wacom on: January 07, 2017, 12:22:13 PM
So any wacom is big  enough is suitale?

That depends on what you consider "suitable" - you can put any tablet behind a screen, but if it's smaller you won't be able to use all of the drawing area. If the screen is too thick, you will get bad pen detection and jitter. It's not as simple as "this model works, this model doesn't". Do a little research, there's plenty of info here.
11  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Suitable wacom on: January 04, 2017, 05:49:36 PM
It's rather small, you need to look for ones that match the size and dimensions of existing LCD screens.
12  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Fujitsu T904 based build - 2K 13" screen - digitizer connector? on: December 20, 2016, 09:36:31 PM
Thank you so much for the link- do you know if I would be able to exchange the screen with any of those other ones and still keep the digitizer and drawing capabilities intact? I use this for all of my art so I really need to keep its drawing ability, and I'm not sure if the digitizer is a separate piece or somehow bound to the screen itself. Also, would I need any kind of specific LED strip to just replace that, or could I find that more easily? I'm sorry if these are obvious questions or anything, I don't know much about screens. I've figured that it is probably a light problem because I have a vertical band on the screen with color distortion and flickering and heat at the bottom, but every computer specialist I've been to has been unwilling to help or open the screen to check this. I was wondering if I could simply replace the LED strip which would be obviously ideal.

I don't see why not - worst case is you'll have to transfer the digitizer from your old screen onto the new one. They're just stuck on the back with some adhesive, it's not a big deal. You don't even need to stick them on super accurately either, as running a calibration should compensate for any slight offsets. You can even stick it onto a screen without a digitizer if it's cheaper, though nowadays the price is usually the same with or without one. As for the LED strip, they're often a size and arrangement specific to the panel, you can search eBay for a suitable replacement.
13  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Wacom Digitizer from Thinkpad X60/X61 Tablet on: December 15, 2016, 12:57:46 PM
Are you referring to the pen digitizer on the X61t or the touchscreen that's included in some models? Because connecting the pen digitizer is pretty easy and straight-forward, but i haven't seen anyone connect the touchscreen yet.

Pen digitizer only. It doesn't have touch, besides, I don't like using touch at all.

So, WaxBee on a Teensy, and it should work fine, right?

Yep. Pinout is:

Pin 1 -> GND
Pin 13 -> VCC 3.3V
Pin 10 -> TX
Pin 9 -> RX

At least that's what the pinout has been for all the digitizers i've tried, one of which is from an X61T.

Necrobump!

Any luck with this build? Were there any advancements made, here or elsewhere, in getting these to run?

I've got an elderly X61t with a SU5E-12S05AS-02X, and looking forward to start the conversion.

bernard,
talking about UnderSampled, which thread are you referring to?

15  Screen Tablet malarky / Useful Links / Re: Infra red touch bar on: December 11, 2016, 11:47:05 PM
You can buy an actual touchscreen digitizer glass at that price (or less) from say, an HP touchsmart laptop or similar. You can also find tabletPC screens with wacom pen+touch digitizers built in. Fun gadget, but i doubt it has the multitouch capability needed in a cintiq-type application. Even with proper touch support on the real thing, i havent seen one cintiq user that actually uses it, everyone prefers to just use the side buttons.
