HSD070I651 7" display and driver board

Mon Dec 30, 2013 10:31 pm

I have a HSD070I651 7" display from kodak easyshare photo frame. I want to use this driver board:

http://www.ebay.ie/itm/321189050303?ssP ... 1423.l2649

but I'm not sure what signal can be connected to the driver board. Is it composite video? I already emailed the seller, but I hope someone here is familiar with this driver board. Detailed photo:

The display & driver board will be used in car.

The spec on the ebay listing mentions Dual AV input which would be composite. They don't say if it's NTSC or PAL?
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

Thanks! No there is no info about PAL/NTSC. I just bought it, so we'll see if it works with rpi and that 7" display.

I got a reply from the seller:

"it is AV video signal. not composite video."

:?

Generally AV means Composite. Maybe the seller is confused and thought you meant Component video?
Also NTSC/PAL does not matter as the RPi can do either.

I got the driver board. There is no spec or data sheet..
I need to buy 6 pin plug (see photos), but I I'm not sure where (OK, I know where, but I have no idea if it has a standard name) - anyone knows what might be tha name for that 6 pin flat plug?
Back of the board and the remote suggests that it can accept 2 separate video inputs, but it's yet to be confirmed.

Update:
I have the screen up & running :D (no rpi signal yet!)
There is a contrast, brightness & color regulation, option to change rotation of the screen and aspect ratio (16:9 / 4:3) and two inputs AV1 & AV2. All functions are available from 5 button panel and IR remote. Accepted type of video yet signal to be confirmed.

Current cost of the project:
old 7" photo frame = free
driver board = 23 euro

You might try to contact the seller and say you did not get the connection cable as pictured in the listing......
And/or ask them for manufacture and part number of the connectors.. I doubt however that you will find a pre-wired connector... You most likely will have to get the pins and a crimp tool as well.

If it were me I would get a cheap AV RCA cable and cut it in half and solder the ends directly to the board. Note that AV2 won't come on unless the Reverse wire is connected to 12V. It's meant for a rear view camera in a car.

For future reference details of the plug:

Manufacturer JST (Japan Solderless Terminals)
Housing part number: PHR-6, tab 2mm, 6 way
Crimp contacts: BPH-002T-P0.5S

I bought them at http://radionics.rs-online.com (2 bags of 50 :shock: ), so if someone needs it please contact me.

I have the screen up & running. I'm using:

Code: Select all

#Normal PAL
sdtv_mode=2

#sdtv_aspect defines the aspect ratio for composite output (default=1)
sdtv_aspect=3  16:9
in config.txt

Probably image quality can be improved - I'm using phone cable to feed power & video together (2 pair cable).

Please check the photo showing the back of the board (open link and zoom in) or check the board itself - it's all there.[12V, AV1, GND, AV2, GND, BACK]

The red cable has a plug that is too wide (3/4 pins) and can fit in 2 positions, but that's for the button panel.

Let me know if you need more help.

I have a problem with this board: Where do I connect the 12V power supply? (Do I connect it to the two contacts within the drawn circle on the board?)

Hello everybody! I have a HSD070I65 display on my hands from a Sony portable DVD player. I found an ebay seller selling the same driver board mentioned in this discussion. Before I make a purchase, I was hoping someone could bring me up to date on how this all works. This looks like a nice display and I don't want to throw away [who throws anything away, anyways]. If I purchase this driver board and after i connect it up with the display, what will be my next step? Will this driver board accept video input signals from a classic A/V cable straight out of a DVD player? Also, how in the world would I set it up with an HDMI output signal from a camera?

My hopes is that I will construct a case for this project and mount it to my Sony Handycam camera and use it as an additional display.

If you know nothing about the driver board or have no clue as to what I said before, I ask you this; what would you do with a small LCD screen and a Pi?

The board has 2 standard AV (Composite / RCA) inputs which can be connected to any AV source such as a DVD player, camera etc, and of course the RPi. If you have never run a RPi on composite then I would suggest you find an old TV with composite inputs and try it to see if it is usable for your needs. IMO composite is not usable for long term, only as a backup or temporary solution. Text is jittery and hard to read. Many programs are unusable because of the low fixed resolution. Applications / playing field are larger than the screen and impossible to see what you are doing off the edges.

The board has no provisions for HDMI at all.
If you need HDMI then I would suggest something like this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/7-LCD-Monitor-T ... 462162ab00
Note: I have not tried this and your LCD screen will likely not work with this board, but the screen comes with it anyway.

The image quality is not great. It's probably OK for movies or images, but definitely not for text.
I have the whole working set for sale (screen + driver) as I decided to play with PiTFT which seems to be much better, but obviously way smaller.

Hello all, this has probably been the most helpful forum post I've read on this site about this exact screen, and I have it all ready except one question that is in the back of my mind: The terminals are 12V, AV1, GND, AV2, GND, and BACK. What is BACK? I understand everything except that. Does it mean the backlight? I can only guess, as there is no datasheet that I can find anywhere on the internet. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! :D

This board is tailored for in-car video.
The back input is used to automatically switch one of the video input to the screen when the vehicle is reversing.

So I'm fairly new to electronics and I'm trying to get this working, it's all hooked up, but I'm not sure know where to put the negative terminal of the power supply, just on either one of the ground terminals? Also will a 12V 1A power supply work it, without damaging or under powering it?

Alright so it works! Except it's backwards? The text looks like it's in a mirror... Anyone have this problem and have a solution?

Go to the OSD setup using the menu button on the remote. These screens have this feature so the camera or screen can be mounted in any orientation and also so the image from the reverse camera can be corrected.

I don't know if you're still active here, but I've got this board with some cables that will really be way too big for my project. Before I cut them up, would you be willing to send me some. I don't know how much shipping would be, but I'd be happy to cover that.
