Subject: LCD question
Some time back, I pulled apart a fairly trashed XT-class computer and one
of the things I got out of it was an LCD, most of it appearing to be fairly
standard stuff and I don't think that I'm going to have a lot of trouble
with that but then there's that other connector...
Two pins, and both wires are the same color.
It's been suggested to me that perhaps this is for an EL backlight. Any of
you folks know of how I might go about testing that, so I can get some idea
of what's actually in there?
Anybody by any chance know of this display?
Oh, and if it helps any the brand name on the box was "Western Digital",
which is the only time I've ever seen that brand name on a computer.
