- Information/help with an epson lcd screen
- 17 Feb 2009 08:26:27 pm Permalink
I have an Epson ECM-A0294 graphic lcd screen, salvaged from an old Brother word processor (although all i have now is the screen). It is monochromatic, 640x240 pixels, and around 9x3 inches. The controller chips are 6x HD61200 (labeled X1-X6 on the pcb) and 2x HD61203 (labeled Y1 and Y2 on the pcb). This screen originally connected to the Brother motherboard through a 10 pin connection. I am looking to use this screen for text output, and possibly graphics in a device to be hooked up to my stereo, essentially an old computer motherboard with a decent sized harddrive (for storing mp3s), and an ir reciever, to allow me to control it with a remote. I have already dealt with the issue of the backlight, and have constructed the high voltage supply to drive the el panel (a far easier task i assume than interfacing to the lcd).
