I found the spec sheet on that video screen

You are a gentleman (gentlewoman?) and a scholar! Thank you much! Yeah it definitely recommends 9V for the backlight, but I wonder if there's a step-up voltage regular on that driver board that supplies the 9V while letting you actually only give 5V to the driver board itself. We shall see!

I managed to find a new one in an electronics forum. Bought it and now i am waiting for the mailman.
Lets see if this 640x480 screen is really worth those 40€ i paid for it.
Thanks for the tip @Cannikin

Also ordered one from the ebay seller. Thinking about using it for my second build which will include the custom PCBs and hopefully be a bit cleaner than my current build with lessons learned and more bells and whistles. Thanks for sharing! I am interested to see what you all do to them to make the form-factor a bit better.

PS: For anyone considering this screen, I offered the seller $65 instead of the $89 and they accepted ;)

Yeah if you get a chance to make an offer on ebay, do it!
Worst they can say is no.
I love haggling but I know some people hate it lol
