Nope, I stripped off everything except the white plastic containing the backlight. Even with the screen off, the pen signal doesn't get through, but it does work if I remove the screen (so I know that it's not a distance issue).
 
At this point I've given up on the Samsung, and I'm ready to order a new one. The only screens that I've seen recommended in this size are lower resolution, at 1280x800. I'd really like to get at least 1680x1050 though.

Hello knowledgeable people!
 
I went ahead and built a rig using Don Shole's enclosure, an Intuos4 Large, and the 15.4" screen from my old laptop, only to find that the screen completely blocks the pen's signal. So, I'm hoping for recommendations on a 15.4" screen that is confirmed to work with little to no jitter, preferably WSXGA+ or higher resolution. I searched these forums for a while, but didn't come up with anything.
 
Thoughts?

* EDIT: Apparently I meant 15.4" screens... *

Hi Bernard.  Thanks for the very quick response!

I suspected the gender problems with FFCs, but it never hurts to ask--right?  I think I'll be able to get away with DIY-beamer's PCB connector, once I sort out the bent cable.

I had thought that folding FFCs was never recommended.  Do they typically hold up after a single fold?

I'm attaching another image to try and illustrate what I'm going for.  I am designing a custom case (very rough in this image, btw), with a hinged lid.  This will allow me to remove the Intuos, similar to TabletMod's functionality.  The screen will be attached to my lid, with the wiring running towards the hinged side (hence my dilemma), and with the controller et al housed underneath the Intuos.  I hope this makes sense...  :-/

Anyway, in the image, there's a photo of my screen.  In the photo, the input connection points upwards, but I need to run the cable downwards.  The cable which came with my controller is round, so I'd prefer to accomplish this with an FFC, in order to push the screen right up against the Intuos.

Thoughts?

Hello all,

Long time lurker, and I'm finally starting my build!  However, I'm still in the parts acquisition phase, and I need some help.

I'm using the screen out of my old laptop (model Samsung LTN154P3-L05), but I basically need to reverse the direction of the video input, so that it travels the shorter distance to the edge of the panel.  I can't seem to find any FFC cables, or adapters that will do this for me.  Ideally, I'd just need a U-shaped FFC cable (with a female connector at one end?).  Attaching an illustration of what I mean, for clarity.

Has anybody encountered or solved this issue before?
