1. Both my WSXGA+ and my WUXGA said UXGA on the sticker on the cable.
2. Just uninstall the drivers and delete the monitors, just like mentioned above. Ir will work when you hook up the new screen.
That is if it's not busted.
What I find very interesting is that 'my' connector has 44 pins and so does the so called TTL interface as mentioned in your first link. So perhaps it is NOT LVDS2?
Anyway, this link http://www.geocities.com/p9019/lcdpanel sounds like...
I don't think that'll work.
First of all it looks like it's a pass through box, otherwise why would it be compatible with VGA cards?
Secondly, the input of the LCD is still with a LVDS2 signal while that box only gives standard monitor...
Exactemundo. I can see it right now: I send it in for something or other and I get it back with another Hitachi WSXGA+ screen and nobody knows where my Sharp WUXGA went "But sir, this is the exact computer you returned to us"....
It get's power through the connector, but how hard can it be to just solder a few wires to the right place...
I would like it just the same if it showed a tv picture.
Just anything but gathering dust like it is now!
ehm.. I don't know anything more I'm afraid. They're both interfaces, i.e. ways one component talks to another. I know nothing about either of them.
So unless someone is quite brilliant at electronics or I can find one of those LVDS -...
Hehe, well the result I got so far from my little Google expedition is that aN LVDS to DVI adapter costs only 699 bucks!
Too hefty for me, but the thing I like... IT IS POSSIBLE!
