I soldered and shrink wrapped the two cables together to form one long one. Seems to work well.

Now I have another issue… What causes the screen to “burn” an image on it?

That's exactly what I'm going to do next time around, soldering 2 cables together instead of trying to extend one.

Image burning with an LCD?  I have seen discoloring with lot of heat, but not that.  In your picture we are seeing "PS" (adobe photoshop).   But is this really "burnt" ?  If you put pure white, pure red, pure blue, pure green and black on top of the areas, what do you see? Is it only one or two channels? Was the lcd like that before?  I hope it is not the longer length that is causing this -- do you still have your "short" cable around?

Is there some sort of "pressure" on the corners of the LCD?  Or if you press against the LCD corner, does it make a difference?

LCDs are liquid crystals (ya that part we know) and needs to be constantly "driven". If the driving stops, the "crystals" "drift away".  In other words proper "power" is required to keep the stuff properly "aligned".  Or this is a frequency or "noise" thingy and the length of the cable is affecting it -- (not sure how exactly though).

Is it occuring equally on odd and even lines?  Because these are driven by separate wires. (2 channels LVDS)

I always like pictures -- they show a lot of things -- I see you are well equiped! Radioshack splicer, fluke multimeter, Weller temp-controlled soldering station, IR temperature sensor, nice long ruler. I see some custom PCB with caps on a pile of colored schematic print outs.  I am just wondering what's in that brown bag next to the luxo lamp base -- does not look like one would want to approach this. Smiley 

I could even make a wild guess that you live in the Washington state! hehe.

The brown bag has mica in it. Not too bad of a substance, but not good to inhale. I use mica in jewelry making. I have a lot of strange chemicals and powders lying around. I try to keep them well marked so that guest don’t play with them. Some of my friends and family members are too curious for their own good. I had an issue once with a crock pot that I used for pickling.

Other things pictured that might be of interest are; a continuity tester, a large emerald, copper tubing, a container full of pure Lithium chloride, head phone adapter for airplanes, electric eraser, Armani sunglasses, and a bag full of art supplies.  Grin

 Cheesy

Jewerly making?  I tried that in the past myself. Are you thinking of doing "geek" jewerly? (i.e. electronics integrated)

BTW-- nice drawing! Smiley

I typically do classical jewelry. I am currently working on pieces made of Mokume Gane of which I also make myself… I never even considered geek jewelry. Now that I think about it, that would be pretty cool to incorporate custom electronics into stuff! I once had a female friend who worked as a bonded-to-the-state locksmith. In her spare time she also played in a crapy band as a lead guitarist. She had me make her a set of picks that corresponded with various guitar shapes and string them together as a necklace. Eight guitar picks in all made of spring steal for the bridge and frets, and Argentina silver for the bodies. Two custom tension wrenches were made into earrings. They turned out really nice. I, of course, would never make something like that for anyone not certified and bonded to the state, so it was a rare opportunity.

As for that drawing, its garbage. I just don’t know how to use a tablet yet. I need to check out some tutorials. Here are some better examples of my art. Still not great though.

"still not great"   -- you make me laugh!  It's awesome!  Smiley

If you use a tool like Art Rage on a (diy) cintiq, it will not take too too long before you make awesome stuff.  Tanassi here was saying that it was so realistic that when he was "erasing" he would, as a habit, swipe away the imaginary eraser "stuff" with his hand.

Note: for integrating electronics in jewerly, the problem I find is often about finding something cool but not "geeky"-looking.
