It's been so long since I got rid of that thing I couldn't even swear that it
was an XT, though it sure wasn't that far from it...
I just pulled it out again -- the two red wires in question go directly to
pads that go right into the back of the display. There's also a part number
with "EPSON" on the sticker, and a google search did turn up somebody
wanting data on this unit (but no followups unfortunately). And that goes
back to 1999. :-)
Looks to be about a 2x16 or 2x20 maybe, with the usual Hitachi controller
chip on there. Of the few LCDs I have on hand here, the other two are
somewhat bigger, this is the only one I have that'll fit into the cover
plate on a drive bay, which suggests some possible applications.
