thanks!

One other recent update, that i found might be useful if someone ends up here - it does not work on all usb ports on my laptop! It seems to only work on the USB 2.0 ports.

I have put on order a driver board for the screen, should be here in a couple of weeks. will update with more details when i get it!

Hi guys!

After having been gone for about 4 years (almost exactly to the day, wow) for the proverbial pack of cigarettes, i was doing some cleanup around the house and found all these parts again and thought i should give it a shot, before i threw them away.

You won't believe what happened - it worked!

I didn't have the usb cable i had used originally and i think that could in part be the problem - i had to use a new one.

I re-read the thread, followed Aerendraca's tips (i still had the 3.3v stepdown curcuit that Aerendraca showed me how to make), and then plugged it in and it just worked!

I'm running a newer laptop now with windows 10, and as soon as i plugged in the digitizer, the windows ink workspace icon showed up on the tray and it just worked!!

Thanks everyone and especially Aerendraca for the help for all these years, and now the project is revived!

I just have to figure out now if i can get the touch controller to work and see if i can find a converter for the screen!

Hey guys, just to keep you up to date: the projecto hasn't been forgotten, I've just been having a very busy few weeks! Hopefully I'll be able to give it a try in the next couple of days and see how it responds. Thanks all for your help!

thanks for the tip jakob.

this is what i got:

[attachment=1]

can you see anything helpful in here? All i could think of was to try and find the vendor id for Wacom, but it does not show up on that report.

Aerendraca, connecting pins 2 and 14 produced the same effect.

It's hard to be 100% sure; it was working when the computer malfunctioned, and the technicians said the issue was with the mb, so I assume that it is working properly, although it is difficult to know for sure. Will test with both ground wires later in the evening and report back then.

OK, so I couldn't get Ubuntu to recognize it, but I haven't used Linux before so I may have done something wrong.

I was able to power up the motherboard and check the connector there - it putting up 3.3 volts, so that part should be OK as well.

Pin 12 isn't connected to anything and I'm only using pin 14 for ground. Could that have an effect on the digitizer not being recognized?

ok so i've tested the usbdebug and this is what i got:



Not really sure what to make of this.

I am also currently downloading ubuntu so i can test XDjackieXD's suggestion as well. Will report as soon as a I have more news.

yes, i have. it still cannot find the device descriptor.
9  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: The Slatiq Project - or "please help an idiot with a soldering iron" on: February 22, 2015, 05:08:45 PM
That was another ground wire. I mentioned previously that it had 2 ground wires with no shielding inside the cable, those were pins 14 and 2 (not pin 1, as i stated before; pin 1 was empty).

Yes, you are correct - it is actually 2,3 and 4.

However, when i performed the continuity test i had the connector plugged in, so instead of counting the pins i tested it against the pins that had a wire in front of it (in this case, 3 and 4) which provided the results i mentioned before.

I re-checked for continuity just now and the values are right - there is continuity for the data pins on the chip to pins 3 and 4, and those are the ones that i have connected to the USB data wires.

Ok so i have some news!

I made the connection just like you explained and tested the output and it was steady at 3.3v. Great!

Then i connected it to the connector and plugged it in into the pc - it made a sound, woohoo!

But then windows returned this:



I tried installing the wacom penabled driver (http://us.wacom.com/en/feeldriver/) but it said it couldn't find a compatible tabled device.

Also, i tried inverting the connection on the data wires, but with no success (when plugging it in that way, the pc does not even recognize the device.

Any ideas?

Thanks again!

I can't than you enough for your invaluable help, you have been a true lifesaver through this whole thing! Sadly I wasn't able to get the capacitors today, I'm going to try and get them tomorrow and see if I can have this puppy working by the weekend!

Thanks! At the risk of sounding stupid, the ground wire from the USB and the ground wire from the board conector should connect to the GND you indicated on the drawing, or elsewhere?
14  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: The Slatiq Project - or "please help an idiot with a soldering iron" on: February 19, 2015, 02:50:19 PM
Thanks! I'm going to ser if i can get my hands on those after work today!

Thanks!

Will only ceramic capacitors work or will electrolytic or polyester ones work as well?
