    Default Scavenged a LCD is it useable?

    Seems the part number is LW700AT6005. Googlefu tells me it is a ChiHsin, it came out of a digital picture frame that has taken a poop. I have been tossing around the idea of a raspberry pi or beagle bone and this would be great if could find a control board for it. I would take a picture but theres not much to it, the screen, metal shielding, positive and negative wire, and ribbon cable. Any help would be appreciated.

    Here’s a bumper sticker I’d like to see: “We are the proud parents of a child who’s self-esteem is sufficient that he doesn’t need us promoting his minor scholastic achievements on the back of our car.”

    This controller lists that screen as being supported: http://www.dhgate.com/product/vga-2a.../99102929.html.
    Full datasheet, including pinout, can be found here.

    Might have some luck with better prices if you throw the model number into a search on eBay, there are a few retailers I've contacted who are really good at knowing whether they have a compatible controller or not.

    doesn't look that will work unless I replace the ribbon cable at it has two connections. I will take a look around though.

    From the picture it looks like both are 30-pin ribbon cables. The description lists the same, but you might want to contact the supplier to verify. I don't think the image on the site is of the actual product, it looks like a stock image they use from the searching I did. I don't want to say definitively that it will work, I'd see what the seller said before I put down any money.

    CMO is the acronym for Chi Mei Optoelectronics, a division of Chi Mei Innolux, also the parent company to ChiHsin.
