    How to use this FREE LCD?

    I got to take home a cool LCD today that they were going to throw out





    All "D" Batteries! How many?







    24 "D" Batteries in each Pack, 48 total!!

















    For a size reference





    Does anyone know how/if this can be used as a PC LCD?

    hrmm looks like a modded picture frame... i know you can do that with some of them. Check the connections, if there is a USB point (not soldered in) then you might be able to rig something up.

    Yeah I don't know, I also salvaged an lcd and am unsure of how to hook it up. Try googling any numbers you find, that will at least tell you the model/manufacturer, and then you can see if you can buy a controller. Mine was made by Hitachi and I sent them an email asking for info, but they haven't gotten back to me yet. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Wow. Interesting. It looks like it was a standalone display, probably programmed to display whatever was on that flash disk.

    Anyway, I'll buy it off you if you can't do anything with it. I have a collection of stuff like that that I like to use as parts and materials.

    It wasn't just a standalone display. It played a short movie with real live people about setting up a wireless network. I imagine that's what's on the CompactFlash card

    BAm! that looks like an S-video port right there. you might be in luck for the secondary (or tertiary) connection on your video card.

    Yup, it is indeed s-video ftw. And that power cable looks an awful lot like a floppy power connector. To determine voltage you need to take a careful look at how the batteries are wired, if possible drawing a diagram. For batteries wired in series, the voltage is the sum of the voltages of all the batteries in that series. Wiring batteries (or series of batteries) in parallel just gives them more life. BTW, a D-cell battery is 1.5v, in case you didn't know. From what I can tell by looking, it seems that there are two series of 24 batteries wired in parallel, giving you 12v. You might want to confirm that with closer visual examination, though. I haven't heard of au either, but you don't really need to know who made it now that you can make it work.
