Anything worth buying in this ebay shop for shielding purpose ?

Well, depends what you call "normal" or "reversed" -- because if the contacts are on the same side, this has the net effect of reversing the signals! ---  pin1 will connect to pin30 and then  pin2 to pin29, etc.

yeah obviously the word change from everyone ^^,  for me the ffc linked by build' is the most typical ffc ! (not reversed inverted..)

this link can help a lot i think (even if i'm sure many of us had already found out this pdf !).

By the way, i experienced myself the normal/non reverse or inverted ffc today.. i thought my screen was dead.. got a screen full of vertical multicolor stretched pixels :/ but everything's ok  ! gotta find ffc again now.. =)

thx bernard and buildorburst ! i thought it was no name cable but i tried just in case ! I think i'll be able to manage to do something with the current lenght.

The ebay seller just mailed me today to annouce my order was out of stock... The ffc quest start again =)

i think it's a straight, normal ffc here, it's usually specified if inverted.

yeah thanks for your advice ! I know this kind of stuff breaks really fast so i'm really careful and try to be more !

Ahaha, i was caught by a screw earlier in the day, even after double checked everything.. i just didn't saw this one :/ (got experience from my mouse thought, a razer, there was a screw under the teflon !)

Since i'm not used with eletronics, i'm trying softly.. but yeah that's my line too, if things don't come easily,  it won't come this way ! i got a bad temper so as soon as i'm frustated i'm done to another thing ! I don't have all the stuff, and i got time to do things so..


it's from the lcd, it power up the sensitives buttons Wink

yeah i'll try to avoid your mistake Wink i'm fighting with the wacom case right now, wanted to try the screen in it's current state to test the sensor depth ! (i haven't even turned on the screen yet.. oppened his packaging box and ripped him off the plastic case.. ><)

Btw if i don't have to touch the screen anymore beside the ffcs things, i'll be quite happy =)

i was wondering, how's your stuff ?

edit: got the tablet case ! the inside was tapered.. really sticky :/ but i'll wait to receive the extended ffcs before doing anything else..

anyone know this wire's name ? where can i order another one like this one ? it power up the buttons screen... but it's really short :/(i'm a noob about electronic !) sorry about the poor quality..

Oi all !

I'm finally starting my own build log since i got my screen this morning.

Here are the specs of the build (don't have named it yet...):
Intuos A3 wide with LG IPS226 (21.5 inch etc etc). As you can tell, it's the same bases as Rik's build.

The funny thing is we're doing nearly the sames changes about moving touchstrip/expresskeys. But i'll look into it later.

For now i've stripped the screen, here some pictures:

the intuos is really big !

this is where i decided to open the screen's case

sesame open up !

had to be carefull here, the cable is short ! (screen buttons' cable btw)

Ô lonely sensitives buttons' pcb...

first contact with a ffc boring ! tadaaaa !

back side of the screen (pinkfloyd !!) where everything connect !

Fun Fact: i get mad while trying to get the screen out of it's back plastic case... tried to pull it in every way possible, and yet it didn't break free... I haven't unscrewed the screw near the hdmi port...  (unfortunately, the uploaded pic don't work :/)

I've ordered 2 ffcs on ebay
because the ones in place are really short !

That's all folks (always wanted to say it !) i'll update this post along with the build !

hey all, it's been a "while" since last time i came here.

I just ordered my screen and will start my build very soon now ! I'll start a build log with a lot of pics, and will try to put as much infos as i can and/or think of !
If anyone want a specific pic, feel free to ask, 'll do my best to fullfill the request Wink

11  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Somes questions on: September 01, 2011, 06:21:42 PM
with the case, i think with a custom case it'll be more than enough !
12  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Somes questions on: September 01, 2011, 03:33:12 PM
YEAH !!! i got my intuos this morning !!! It's so biiiiiiig ! awesome !

i bought it for 270€ postal fee in. It's a little used on the right side, but whatever, i won't keep the original case !

The sensor depth's is approximatively 15 mm. Not so much but i guess it'll be ok. I'll soon order the screen and start building the board =) woohooo !!

wow, nice and useful tool, thanks you =)
14  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Somes questions on: August 29, 2011, 07:10:13 PM
it can make it ! thx for the link, i'm really interested ! =)
15  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Somes questions on: August 29, 2011, 03:02:27 PM
hahah, life is all about stranges and funnies "coincidences" !

thanks for the intels on the touch strips and expresskeys, i know now i can manage to put everythings under my right hand =)

About the bamboo.. well, i don't really know, it's like some placeholder exemple for the idea i guess. But since u told me there were conflicts using the two all together, i'm kinda slowed down about this !

I found this:, seems to be quite interesting, a little more expensive than the bamboo thought (and don't know about the stuff's quality), but maybe there will be much less uses problems...

Btw, i have to wait for my intuos, and then order the screen, i still think i'll order the 21.5 instead of the 23", even if u adviced me to do so. I prefer to use the full screen as active area than to cut some width off the screen.
