After a very long break, I’ve decided to complete this mod once and for all.
This update is mainly to make sure the LCD is still working after sitting around for a number of years, and confirm I still have all the parts.
Firstly, let’s make sure the LCD is still working.
Now we need to create something to mount the various parts, which include LCD circuit board and motherboard. I thought of an easy solution, use the existing CRT mounting holes to create threaded stands that all the components can be suspended from.
I picked up some 65mm threads and matching bolts from the local hardware store, these were threaded into the original plastic bezel holes.
A Dremel solves the problem of the original bolt heads in the way.
I give it a test run and notice a strange vertical white line running down the centre of the LCD, I thought some connection must be loose, but all the wiggling and playing around I was not able to resolve it.
I will just have to leave it for now and come back to it later.
Next step is working on the buttons and knobs.
