Converting a laptop screen LTN141XF-L03 into an HDMI monitor - part 2 - firmware

Configuring the screen and firmware

Converting a laptop screen LTN141XF-L03 into an HDMI monitor - part 2 - firmware

In the previous post I had obtained all the hardware I needed to re-use an old laptop LCD panel as an HDMI monitor.  The panel had lit up in a nice blue over 90% of the screen with a rather dodgy looking graphic in Chinese floating around.

Converting a laptop screen LTN141XF-L03 into an HDMI monitor - part 1 - connecting

I've used a couple of bare bones HDMI screens in Raspberry Pi projects but there is always the need to find a screen for testing the Pi, and plugging it into the main house TV is never popular. I read about a controller board from Banggood.com which allowed to to drive many different LCD panels and had many interfaces - including HDMI.

This post will explain what I did to get this board working with an LTN141XF-L03 panel salvaged from an old Samsung laptop.

Analog Zero - first looks

Adding analog in ports to a Raspberry Pi

Analog Zero - first looks

Analog Zero was a very fast kickstarter project which I got in on an earlybird reward because I was already backing another project by Alex Eames.  The project got to funding in 85 minutes - which was pretty quick and only cost me £8.  This project was a kit for a relatively simple shell for the pi zero which added 8 analog in ports.

I've read analog signals into an arduino but not into a pi yet, so this was where this experiment hopefully will lead.

It's all about me...

I'm a 48 year old married father who works with websites for a living. Doing that for work means I dont often update this site, unless I can think of something useful to say. I mostly like taking photos - and most of my internet presence now will be related to that.

Something else?

Dont you find it ironic that people invest so much in bringing you to a website only to give you a list of links to take you elsewhere? So I'm not going to give you a list of my favourite haunts to send you away from this site.
