Yep, it's a touch screen, I got it from a custom in-car navigation system. I'm not sure it'll work with the G4 but it didn't cost me anything (yet) so no harm done!skunk said:Is the 7 inch screen a touch-screen, by any chance, or part of a CCTV system? There are clearly more pins than needed otherwise.
CanadaRAM said:not going to be easy. You'll have to dig up the pinouts on that monitor and somehow cross-reference those to SVGA, then build a convertor cable, then hope the screen can handle the Mac frequencies.
That's not a huge worry. You can splice together an AC adapter for it with far less trouble than trying to figure out a proprietary pinout .AlBDamned said:Hmmm, doesn't sound promising does it. The other thing I'm really worried about is the power. It was run off a 12v system before and I'm worried it'll fry on 'ol Sawtooth.
Ok, its got quite a few markings on the cord and connector.cjc343 said:Are there any distinguishing marks on the cord? Symbols or words on the plugs? Anything on the back of the screen?
The more info, the easier it will be to find...
matticus008 said:Did it come from an Acura? Seems to be a SCSI connector carrying a proprietary serial data stream...you might be able to get the pinout by contacting a dealer's maintenance shop for the brand of car that it came from. Say that you're trying a custom project and want to splice into the screen (don't say that you've removed it from the car and just want to play with it--they tend to be much more helpful when your question concerns the products they sell/support).
Quite likely and is it worth it? I e-mailed Honda Connectors UK and they've referred me to their local distributors.CanadaRAM said:This is gonna be a MAJOR headache.
They probably can't help if it's just a generic data connector. Only the car manufacturer would know what type of signal is carried on each pin.AlBDamned said:Quite likely and is it worth it? I e-mailed Honda Connectors UK and they've referred me to their local distributors.
LOL.matticus008 said:Well that's just not good, now, is it? This is turning out to be quite the adventure!
