 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, I've just bought an old camcorder at a thrift store. It has an LCD screen, which I want to hook up to an RCA video output from an R-2R DAC. The DAC is connected to my Arduino Uno. I basically want to take an analog stream from a camera and send it out the DAC to the LCD. I would like to know if this is possible and if it is, how I would do it. Thanks!

Unfortunately, LCD-panels in camcorders does not use standard Video interface - only the old small CRT picture tubes used that.

So absolutely no way of using it, unless you are very skilled, and are prepared to do A LOT of homework and reverse-engineering.
