I am new to this whole idea of this, and have successfully set my i-opener, with new bios expanded ram, etc.
I have been very interested in the idea of extending the cable for the lcd screen. The threads that I have read about this subject state that contrast controls are lost the longer the cable. But, I have not read any definate resolution from someone that has been successful on extending this cable past 18 inches.
Is there anyone that has sucessfully extended this cable a few feet... and what was your technique.
I don't know what you mean by a few feet? I believe you could go two maybe two and a half
feet the way I did. I think the time lag in a longer cable may be a problem, you can always
try. I took the original cable and diagonally cut it in the middle and with some salvaged
22ga wire from a parallel cable I pigtailed spliced (not a butt splice) in 18 inches to
install into an old 386 laptop case. The only problem I had was with the backlite HV.
The one in the IO is small, designed for about 3cm of cable length. I used the one from the donor laptop as it was bigger and is supplied enough power for the 18 inches of test
Experiment with it, if you screw it up I am sure someone has a dead IO to supply you with a replacement cable.
