 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I recently disassembled HP printer AiO 2350 series and I am wondering if I can use it as LCD for Arduino Uno rev.3. LCD probably have 256 colors and it looks about 240x320px or less. Thanks for any help.

Unless you can find the service manual for that printer that shows the interface to the controller board I think you are going to be out of luck. I haven't seen anyone else who has been able to do that, mainly due to lack of documentation, rather than due to
hardware incompatibility.

See pinout on page 8 of attached doc.
I don't think you can use this display with an arduino. (without a great deal of programming experience, if at all)
It requires a bipolar (+/-) power supply and a whole lot of signals that are not normally required for a display.
You would be much better off just buying a cheap arduino compatible graphic display from china.

And what about using screens from Nokia 6120 or from Siemens A55?

We've had other people ask similar questions and I've never seen anything come of it but there are some links on the net.

That's all I can offer.
