I did, but don't have my notes in front of me. I ended up tearing the
monitor apart and reverse-engineering 90% of the schematic for the
small PCB that had the video connection, power jack, etc., and that
attaches to the main part of the innards via a 40-pin (2x20) header.
I have cobbled up a temporary power cable by soldering 3 wires (+12,
+5, and GND) onto that PCB at the 40-pin connector. and, except for
portability, it works great.
I don't have any male mini-DIN-6 connectors, or I'd just make a proper
power cable. I'm not enthusastic about recycling an old PS/2
keyboard/mouse extension cable because I don't think those tiny wires
would enjoy a couple of amps of DC flowing over them. Keyboards and
mice use a lot less power than an LCD display, so lacking any hard
evidence as to minimum required wire gauge, I've held back a bit on
whipping something up. I've verified that both of my panels work; now
I just need a safe, reliable way to power them.
I'll check my notes tonight and get you a pinout.
