Microvision replacement screen project - pre-order & purchase here

Recommended Posts

It's May, have prototypes been tested yet?

 

I just pre-paid the shipping cost for these... hopefully they'll arrive within about a week.

Cool, sign me up for three if they work.

Any update on this? Looking forward to getting a couple :)

 

The samples are set to arrive by tomorrow.

It's tough to get a good picture, but here's what the prototype looks like:

It looks and works great. Besides the scratches that are on the game I'm playing, the LCD looks pristine. There's one thing, however, that I'll need to contact the supplier about. The range of the contrast isn't wide enough. Even with the contrast as low as it will go, the pixels that are off are still showing somewhat dark. It looked barely/almost good enough. I had to solder in a resistor in parallel with one of the existing resistors to get the contrast in a good range. Hopefully the supplier will be able to fix this. I'll keep you posted.

 

One cool thing is that the front and rear polarizers are fixed onto the glass of the LCD. No extra parts to install incorrectly.

That looks amazing! I would like to increase my order from 2 to 3 if we are still allowed to add to our order.

Thanks and nice work!

Yep, pre-orders are still open. I'll give at least one week official notice, after getting the contrast figured out.

EXCELLENT! really looking forward to getting the two I preordered, I think I would like to increase it to three now if that is ok. I have another micro vision in need of a new scree :P

I initially signed on for 2 - I'd like to bump that up to 3. This will certainly be worthy of some retrogaming coverage across the Interwebs when this is released. Looking great!

How hard were they to install? Pretty straight forward? Basic soldering?

 

It looks fantastic, awesome work on this!
