Sure. Just take it all apart, analyze the circuitry and solid state components and have a go at it (that's the "fiddle with" part). Not saying it would work, but you'd have learned something ... That's pretty much how most of us did it to begin with.I was curious if it would be possible to swap this out for a panel with a higher resolution?
I did? (images) It comes apart quite readily, the LCD has a (I assume) typical flat flex cable. Literally the easiest part to remove, hence why I thought I may be able to replace it. I'm not entirely sure what you are getting at... I'm looking to replace one loose component, and if it won't output above 320x240 anyway then I'd find out the hard way and move on? If there isn't a panel available then I'm not going to touch the board, but if there is then that's the starting point, no? One step at a time...
Well, two things. Just having a bit of sport with you. After all, you're looking for hardware advice for a device that has nothing to do with a RPi in the first place in the RPi forums.I'm not entirely sure what you are getting at...
Yep. I suspect that being built as an inexpensive device, and despite having a "typical" ribbon cable and "generic" lcd, it won't operate above it's 320x200 resolution. Without having more information about the driver ICs and knowing their capabilities, direct experimentation is the only sure way to know sometimes.I'm looking to replace one loose component, and if it won't output above 320x240 anyway then I'd find out the hard way and move on?
There you go.I bought it to break it, so win/win in either case, it still works with its ridiculous resolution.
I'm happy to try and help, but advice is all I can give you.I appreciate the time you're taking to respond, but I'm not asking for advice.
1.Perhaps. You want an answer without providing critical information. While it may seem something useful for a RPi, one still needs to know more specifics than you've provided.I'm asking;
does such a panel exist?
if so, do you know where I can find it?
