Great video! I think it would benefit your greatly to speak up a little more and try not to mumble as much.

Wow your channel is so underrated, good content, short videos, straight to the point, subscribed, Ohh one question. I maybe be 3 years late but anyway...Any idea if I can build myself a 144hz monitor using a 1080p panel which was 60hz by default using a 144hz capable board? Does the display itself need to be tweaked to achieve those 144hz without getting burned?

hi im suffering from eye tiredness and im interested in building my own monitor which will be transparent.. any ideas? Thanks
Saterlite (7 months ago)
There are transparent LCD screens but the resolution isn't that great and they're tinted grey. Since it's an LCD it also requires a back-light, so. But! there's also transparent OLED screens which don't require back-lighting or don't have any tints when off. But are very expensive and not commonly sold in regular monitor sizes. Or you could have a laser projector, and a glass with embedded quartz crystals to pick up the light. But that's difficult and if you don't have a specific laser projector that gets absorbed by quartz then your blind. But maybe you could use some other material in the glass? Tell me when you build it!

I ordered mine recently but I'm stressing over the power supply, I'm doing a project where in I 3d print a mount for the board and control panel with a sliding track to my work laptop. I'm hoping the board could be powered off one or two Usb ports to use the monitor without a power supply on me at all times

instead of spending 40$ on these controllers , almost any pawn shop nowadays sells fully functional complete LCD monitors from 17"-29" for 20$-50$ and gives you 1 month warranty on it

Question: Why does your channel look so amazing but why don't you have many subscribers Answer: Because you are a kid RACIST

Just got my controller and I dont get an image, but the screen does light up, it's very aggravating. Customer support really doesn't exist. Order at your own risk.
Mahdee Ahmad (1 year ago)
my screen had gone white
Alexis Baboo (1 year ago)
does this controller board work on anykind of lcd panel?
techtoolbox (1 year ago)
The connector on the board of the panel should have around 40 pins or so. Here's an image comparing the two types of interfaces: http://thinkpads.kr/xe/files/attach/images/58/938/186/625286aabb1f2d2248511bb21d459e7b.png. As long as your panel isn't more than a few years old then you should be fine.
Alexis Baboo (1 year ago)
could you please tell me how can I find out if the panel has an LVDS interface?
techtoolbox (1 year ago)
As long as the panel has an LVDS interface, the controller board will support most displays.

Philip Pappas (1 year ago)
is it possible to power a 12V / O.25A cooling fan from the controller board?
techtoolbox (1 year ago)
+Philip Pappas I am not sure, but you can probably find an extra pin that has some voltage.
Albert Benitez (1 year ago)
So Im thinking of doing this and putting it to my car... Do you guys think I can hook up a DC Power Cable/Lead DIRECTLY to my old stereo power supply? Maybe connect it to a DC-DC Adjustable Step-up Power Converter Module? Any suggestions let me know. Thanks
techtoolbox (1 year ago)
As long as you can rewire the power supply for the board correctly, it should work perfectly fine.

Just like GreatScott's Video, lol. Down to the script said
techtoolbox (1 year ago)
Haha, I noticed that too.
Mesharyhd (2 years ago)
can you tell my your LCD screen model number and did you mean by the 29pin the black squares connector that translates to 30pin needles and can be plugged on the LCD screen
techtoolbox (2 years ago)
+Mesharyhd I am using an LG display, model number LP156WH2, and yes, I did mean the black connector.
Mesharyhd (2 years ago)
how many pins on the LCD board driver and how many pains on your LCD can you be specific about the specification of your LCD and list the model number of it what cable did you use to connect them together and thanks for awesome video
techtoolbox (2 years ago)
+Mesharyhd The model of the LCD controller board is M.NT68676.2A. The connector is a standard LVDS cable and there are 29 pins. I used a 12V PSU at 0.3 amps to power the board. If you need any more information on this board, feel free to read the listing one eBay. Thank you!
Victor Tabram (2 years ago)
Quick question. I've heard that the volume controls do not work when outputting audio from this board (HDMI input).. Could you confirm?
Victor Tabram (2 years ago)
+TechToolbox thanks
techtoolbox (2 years ago)
Yes, the volume control do work when outputting audio.
Ahmet Yasar (2 years ago)
Can you setup the system turn on without power button?
Ahmet Yasar (2 years ago)
+TechToolbox Thank you I will make an smart-mirror DYI project so I want to make sure It turns on itself without a button even after power outage.
techtoolbox (2 years ago)
It turns out without the power button, but it is dependant on the input.
tosdude (2 years ago)
Your power supply, That's 12 volts at how many amps? The board needs at least 4, you may get away with a little less. (If it doesn't print the amps check if the watts is 48W+. These are both on the output side. )
techtoolbox (2 years ago)
The power supply I am using is 12 volts at 3.33 amps.

Nice video, how did you think of the idea to record this?
