Been A While, But I'm Back With A New Inquiry

Post by NewBuilderMaker » Wed Nov 08, 2017 12:48 pm

SO.

Had too many issues the TFT screen, so I bought a back-up camera monitor. I've disassembled it and I seem to have one of the umpteen million variations of controller board. πŸ˜‚ Does anyone know how to convert this particular monitor from 12v to 5v? As always, any help is appreciated. Thanks, folks. Have a great day. 😊

Looks like an Innolux screen found on http://www.sudomod.com/wiki/index.php?title=GBZ_Screen
It has this 5V mod picture:

HEy I have the exact same screen. If you detach the pcb there is a place to solder 5v on the underside. Its very simple and clean.

It seems they used some ridiculously hefty double sided tape so it refuses to budge. Still, if I can figure a safe way to do so I'll give that a whack. 😊 Thank ya kindly.

Try an xacto knife to separate the pcb from the screen. then it is easy to remove the tape
