Hi All,

I am wondering if and how i could connect up a HP IPaq H2210 screen?

I have an old one that I will never use again and would like to strip it down and use the screen to interface with the Raspberry Pi.

Display Type
Transflective type TFT color with LED backlight
Number of Colors 64K color (65,536 colors) 16-bit
Touch Screen Yes
Resolution (W x H) 240 x 320
Viewable Image Size 3.5 in (96 mm)

I have attached the image of the connector from the screen.

Hope someone can help.

Regards

Aidan

That would require a compatible HDMI->LVDS adapter... some discussion on this board - search for: LVDS

I have 2 HP IPaqs lying around and I was thinking of trying the same thing. The screen is small but it would be an interesting project. I like the screen b/ they use fine point styli, I don't like the stlyi you have to use with iPad. If you or anyone else comes up with a way to use these screens on a Pi I would love to know about it. Best to all.

There are eBay sellers specializing in LCD panel drivers for
many brands and builds. Get a matching one with HDMI/DVI
input , but don't ask me how to get touch working (or if it's
possible at all) .

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

Thanks, I'll give it a shot. I may not get it working but the trying is the fun, plus I'll learn a lot just by the effort. From what I've been seeing done with the Pi, it seems not very much is impossible.

This LCD screen is not LVDS, but CMOS parallel 16bit interface.
Can you give its model number? Please type everything that is written on it.

I am attaching a photo from one side of the screen. On the other side at the bottom I see:
005 NY (or NV) A498 A2

Thanks for looking at this

When you can't find a complete datasheet for your LCD display, the only thing you can do with it is to sell it and purchase one that is documented. This is especially true for the mobile device LCDs.
You can pretty much figure out a laptop display even if you don't have a datasheet, because you know its resolution and you can find further details by looking at connectors, traces on its pcb, etc.
But this one, no chance!

I really appreciate you looking into this. I had a couple lying around and thought it would be interesting to something with them and the Pi. But looks like a no-go. I'll look for something else, there's no shortage of Pi ideas. Thanks again.

I would very much like to see that data. Could you post it on here? That way it will be available for others too. Thanks for finding that.
