Pi screen: almost had it buuuut i broke it

Tue Mar 04, 2014 8:38 pm

so lots of issues thus far won’t bore you with my troubles you can read it if you want. ANYway i was wondering if any of you had any insight on how to fix this, it is a portable dvd player lcd screen. I got a little impatient *facepalm* and broke some wires that connect the screen to the motherboard.

here are the other two peices :


i know the motherboard isn’t fried idk about the screen but i won’t know until i can do somethin about those wires. My soldering skills are well i have never soldered (i do however have a soldering iron just bought it, yes i am a noob) anyone?
ps sorry if this is in the wrong topic i wasn’t sure where to post this

If you are trying to attach this directly to the Pi using that ribbon cable dont bother.

I tried on what appears to be this exact model (this is a slave to the master DVD car player with a 3.5mm jack as input from master) without luck. I had someone that knew about this kind of stuff and said that you will need some major reprogramming to get it to work. 100 hours of work or more.

Always happy to chat about the Pi!
