well, I'll be the first to say something.
take a pic of the connectors (nice and clear like your other pics) and tell use what the display came from.

at least most arduino projects don't require a HOT soldering iron smiley-mr-green

I'm sorry, but Don's remark was a little vague for a reason. The OP question was a LITTLE vague smiley-yell

it looks like a real good job but how's the soldering to the copper strips? does it melt the adhesive or are you using a 15-25 watt iron?

that's why I still have 286, 386 and 486 mother boards. they were full of headers and things.
an easy way of removing the header pins is to "lift" the plastic part off first and the remove the pins one by one.

may be useful for an analog keyboard or onboard temperature probe.

man what a DIP-DUH I have been. I've been dreaming of getting a graphic LCD screen for that last several months and then it hit me today!!!!!
I have six working Palm PDAs, two with broken screens and one that has an intermittent power problem. there's a program for the Palms that makes them act like an Matrix Orbital LK204-25 display. I'm gonna have some fun now.

(and yes, I already searched the forums for the LK204-25)

try your local college or university's Astronomy class. they should know pretty much everything for mounting displays and cameras on telescopes and probably binoculars too. a high-end camera shop should also help, or at least give you some leads and pointers.

thanx for the heads up but so far nothing is working. is there a "board" type that I can use to plug the MintDuino 328 into my Uno board and upload the bootloader?

WELL, CRAP! that didn't work.
I'm just gonna play Minecraft for a while.
11  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: FTDI ft232rl DIY on: January 22, 2013, 10:46:32 pm
no, not for our beloved ATMega. but I'm following the guide from this post right not.... http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard
I'm doing the one at the VERY bottom as it's using the bare; absolute (could use a bottle right now) minimum of extra parts.


ps if you try this one, watch that very bottom power rail. it's upside down. just make sure you connect positive to positive and negative to negative.

same as me, take a rest and work on something else for a while, then come back to it later and scour the internet for an answer or hope someone else has run into this and can hand us a clue.
13  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: FTDI ft232rl DIY on: January 22, 2013, 07:26:39 pm
well, in that case I guess it's back to the grindstone and see if I can bug Makershed enough to see if anyone can give a hand.
14  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: FTDI ft232rl DIY on: January 22, 2013, 06:28:10 pm
I'm currently going through the exact same thing at the moment (except using a PL2303 instead of a FT232). I home again so I'll be trying a few different things now. Baud rate and swapping the Rx and Tx lines are first on the list.

I'll post if I get it working. So far I do know to use the Arduino Duemilanove w/ ATmega328 board type.

update: no go on the above ideas.

thanks, I found that also, but still nowhere on what speed I should be "talking" at. I added a "board" listing and named it PL2303 and edit it as I find new things. I've changed the baud to 57600 but haven't tried it yet.
