Modifying laptop monitor
by Meanderpaul - 1/22/13 7:31 AM
I'm new here and what better way to start off then to ask a question. I have an old dell laptop monitor that i took off of a..well...dell. i think it was an inspiron that ran vista. I have a what i believe to be three major steps to do with my project that i need some input on. my main thing is the power. I need to make the screen be powered by a portable power supply that can handle playing video for at least 2 hours. ( amount of power can be dealt with later for the amount of time and im not against rechargeable or a plug in and play like an ipad or similar tablet.)
when i hold the screen in front of my i have two flat fires with a grey housing coming from the left. one large data cable and one small ( looks similar to data cable connector.)
on the right i have six wires with these colors:
black, white, black w/Grey line, white w/Grey line, blue, and grey. I would like to know which are power and ground (s) and what the others are for.
