I've got an old Sony Vaio laptop that hasn't worked in years, although I believe the screen to be good. The screen is a Hitachi TX38D95VC1CAG running at 1400x1500. Several web sites I've found say that the interface is a 2-channel, 6-bit LVDS interface, and without knowing any better, I'll assume they're right. All I can tell you is that is has a 20-pin connector (presumably for the display data), and a 2-pin connector (presumably for the backlight).
Does any one know if it would be possible to drive this screen from any HDMI->LVDS converters available for the Pi (even if it does require another PSU)?
Searching on the forums here, I found the Chalkboard Electronics module (here), although the description for that states that it will drive an 18- or 24-bit interface, which doesn't sound like mine (if it is indeed a 6-bit interface).
I don't mind a bit of soldering, tinkering, etc... but if it's not possible at all, there's no point in me starting
If it's not possible, I'll consign the laptop to the bin... it's been sitting in the bottom of my wardrobe since 2002 (along with a Toshiba and Acer laptop, although the screens on those are lower resolution, so not really worth thinking about, IMHO).
