Powering my monitor
So here is my issue:
I got a monitor (LM215WF4-TLE7) without any cables.
After some googling, I can’t / I’m struggling to find how I can power it and plug an input.
Do you know where I can find the right control board if needed?
“needed” because I was wondering if we could just plug the connector (that I have to find) right into the raspberry but I’ve never experienced any of this before. That’s why I’m looking for advice that could help …
Thanks for reading and have a nice one !
@flavito You posted the model type of the LCD panel. So I assume you don’t have a complete monitor but just the naked panel. Hence your question about connecting it to the pi.
What you need is a LCD controller board. I wrote a lot about those in this forum already and I don’t want to repeat myself all the time. So have a look here and here. Maybe use the forum search. You should find all the information you need.
What I can tell you is that your panel is 21.5 inch, FullHD (1920x1080) and it has a 30-pin 2-Channel, 8-bit interface.
You’ll find solutions as cheap as 3-4€ with a bit of hands-on work, 10€ for plug’n’play but a relay is needed if you want to use a PIR-sensor, or 30€ for a board with the needed firmware pre-installed. They all have pros (e.g. price) and cons (custom wiring).
Read a bit and if you have further questions you just ask again. Usually I look at the forum daily or at least every two days.
