14" IBM laptop LCD dvd player

Recommended Posts

I have an LCD from a Dell laptop. The LCD is a 14" IBM part number 47L7400. I want to use it to display NTFS from an s-video or composite output from a portable DVD player.

I understand that I need some kind of display adapter, which the original laptop had but now is defunct.

I don't want to buy a portable dvd player with a screen if I can get this one to work instead.

Any thoughts?

Thanks Ante,

I've actually found that site since posting my topic. I have sent about a dozen emails to different distributors and manufacturers and have received one reply denying my request (see below).

"Thank you for your inquiry.

We sell our products to OEM manufacturer's who design these products
into their own products for resale to end-users. We unfortunately have
no authority to support end-users logistically or technically. For
example, we have no method to collect sales taxes, we are restricted by
insurance regulations and we don't accept credit cards. "

They will not make any friends that way for sure! Maybe one can pose as a company and require a sample this is known to work sometimes. You have to get a proper e-mail address and give out your postbox # but it can work!
Anyway if you find something more, please let me know.

Anyone else got a clue ? ???

Ante ::)
