    PsOne screen - so easy and cheap, everybody should use it

    Hi,

    it took me exactly 37 minutes to figure out how to control the PSOne screen with a s-video plug on an old laptop. I read some very bad comments about it beforehand and I can't understand what is so bad about this display, anybody who is planning to get one - do it! I can recommend it!

    40$ + 0,50 for 5 wires ;P

    We have some Real Aircraft FMC's which would work well with these.

    Similar (but different) http://www.casemodgod.com/ModGuides/...amecubeLCD.htm

    I thought I had another bookmarked, but can't find the link. I know that a few years back there were several "how-to" articles. They could likely be found with a bit of searching.

    Here you go:

    Same process, just different mounting location; in the above link they're placing it in a computer case.

    looks great. How difficult would it be to incorporate line select keys and keypad to this screen?

    The opencockpits kit uses a psone screen with its keypad etc. See this link to see how it is done

    Thanks for the video, in it you mention that it is easy to extend the distance of the screen from the pcb by using a different flat ribbon. I have been trying for months to get a longer flat ribbon connector - where do you get them from?

    All

    I have a .pdf file showing exactly how to take apart a psone and do this conversion. It was originally on the FDS website, but now appears to have been removed. If you want a copy then PM me with your email address and I will send it

    Thanks, it would be great if you could find it. I have 2 psones to use for the chronometer displays, but the pcb is too big to fit into the space in the MIP
