LCD Controller for old TV Display
Hey Guys, I want to build my first Magic Mirror and I am not sure about the Display Controller.
I took the display from my old tv, its a CFP190W01-A00 but i can not find a compatible Controller.
I did find a datasheet, but i am unsure what boards are compatible to my LCD screen.
I would be very happy if someone could assist me in choosing the right controller for my display!
Thank you very much for your help in advance!
I’m not sure if that’s going to be cheap or easy to find out.
Did you just remove the screen panel from the TV? What about the other parts that has the connections, eg: vga, hdmi, etc?
It’s easier (and normally cheaper) to take a monitor as they generally have the right connections and also display better than a TV.
You can use any universal LCD controller board that supports 30 pin LVDS 2 channel, 8 bit. (FIX-30P-DO8L). Make sure you get the right LVDS cable with it. You can use the black GND wires for fingerprinting to make sure they fit your screen.
You’ll also need an inverter with 4 ports for the CCFL backlight.
The cheapest set should be around 3€, more advanced (TV controller)boards with HDMI you get for around 10€. Boards with a firmware dedicated to you screen cost around 30€.
This is a really good site to start collecting information about LCDs.
