Hi bongofishers x)
I will give this project one more try, last time my built-in powersupply went to hell on my Dell 2007FWP.
Now I have this Wacom Intuos2 and I'm about to buy a Dell 2000FP for this build since it has got a external powersupply.
I've thought about a simple design, I won't strip the tablet, just the screen. It worked last time until the powersupply bricked.
I will put the screen onto the tablet and mount the rest on the back of the tablet (everything except the lamps) then I'll make a casing on the back to protect the components which will be mounted there.
To make it look a lil bit cooler I will decorate the whole tablet with some black ducttape.

Will this work ya think? Cheesy

Name suggestions?

The Ductiq? Tongue

It'll work if the screen is thin enough.

and yes
duct tape.


Beware though I believe the glue is conductive.

Thx for the answers!

I will start building it as soon as i get the monitor, and I will also do a buildlog.

Do you guys know if I will need an extended FFC cable for the Dell 2000FP montior?

And is there another alterative to get rid of jittering than the aluminiumfoil thingy?

Every setup seems to be different.  Mine barely jitters at all, and only in the last 5mm of the screen on either side.  I never tried anything special  to fix it, it just worked that way.

There is a jittering thread here ->  http://forum.bongofish.co.uk/index.php?topic=209.15

but in summary here are various fixes, none of which are guaranteed to work by the way  Roll Eyes.   
 
    Moving the inverter board around, especially under the Wacom shielding. rotating it 90 or 45 degrees.    Not very effective usually but some have been lucky.

    Different monitor resolution/refresh rate, possibly not the native resolution of the LCD.

    Trying different settings in the Wacom drivers.

    Doing without the inverter and using a strip of LEDs instead. Might make a difference, but also produces less heat which is good.

    Clingfilm / grounded ally foil / clingfilm sandwich on the LCD boards. - seems to be one of the most successful fixes. It's nothing to be too nervous of really.

    Put monitor back together - Put monitor on the "bad monitors list" - Sell monitor - buy a different monitor.  Undecided

I just tested a naked 12x18 Intuos 2 board on top of an whole 2000FP and had no jitters at all.  It will probably be a month or two before I get to stripping the monitor, but I think it's an encouraging start. Do you have any news or advice, zimon?

That is good news. I've looked at the 2000fp's for a future 12x18 version of mine... damn... this is addictive.

Incidentally, I just tried quick tests with an Intuos 1 and an Intuos 3 tablet, holding them face to face with the Dell 2000FP.

The Intuos 1 seemed fine, but the Intuos 3 had jitters. I thought other people would like to know.
