Problem with AUO - B121EW02
Did you find what the problem was with the burning wire?
I ordered the same LCD (AUO - B121EW02) from Ebay and connected it. After trying to find what the smell was, I realized that the wires (two red wires on the outside) have burned (my finger as well
When I connected the original (no data but the light comes on), wires were barel warm to touch.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I am wondering the cable got damaged because of the power requirement difference in the two LCD panels.
Before hooking up the new LCD panel (AUO - B121EW02) the old work working fine except the cracked screen in the right bottom corner. After I attached the new panel, the new panel was glowing florescent light blue with no data coming on the screen. I smelled something burning.
I disconnected and put the old cracked screen back and now even that one behaved like the that...no data and bright light blue.
Did this happen because of the faulty new LCD screen or because of different power requirements?
What should be the next step?
