I want to use this display

hello
i want to use this display with arduino uno
How can i connect with bord
because i have 2 of this lcd
pleasehttps://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brother-DCP-J125-LCD-Screen-CMC2P0410-V3-E-/254262605936

Do you have the data sheet for the display that tells what controller the display uses and the cable pin out?

Are you telling us you spent a significant amount of money purchasing two of these from eBay? If so, why? :astonished:

If on the other hand, you just happened across a couple being thrown out from the service department and have matched them to eBay, then no loss. They are a replacement part for a particular very old printer; they have no other value. If you do not have the printer, essentially no value at all.

(Why did I say "very old" printer? Because repairing equipment and thus having replacement parts, has not been viable for some time! :roll_eyes: )

You said two displays. You have two old printers?

Our point is, LCD displays in general are not generic. The ones discussed frequently on this forum are usable because they are reasonably well documented. It just might be that what you have uses chips for which there is documentation (I gather that there are chips on the back of the module) but unless someone can find that information, it is pretty useless.

The only other way to use such a thing, is if the system to which it was connected can be "hacked" by disassembly of its code, to discover how the display was driven. This is of course, an equally or even more serious undertaking. :astonished:

I understand that the thread has been abandoned for many years, but no one has posted a solution, so I decided to leave here the information I could find, hope it will be useful to someone.

controller behaves like ST7735(R?)
1.9 inch; 128x160 pixels; 8 bit parallel interface; 3.3v; 3 led in series backlight
cstn matrix - think twice if this lcd is worth your time.

1 /RESET (may be not inverted or there's a mistake in some service manuals)
2 GND
3 VDD (3.3v)
4 IOVCC (3.3v)
5 /CS (inv)
6 NC (not connected)
7 /RD (inv)
8 DB7
9 DB6
10 DB5
11 DB4
12 DB3
13 DB2
14 DB1
15 DB0
16 /WR (inv)
17 RS (low-command, high-data)
18 GND
19 A (+) (backlight anode)
20 K (-) (backlight cathode)

The lcd pinout of your brother printer can be found in the service manual for the specific model, they are publicly available for now.

Here is an incomplete list of those printers that may contain this display.
MFC-J625DW/J280W/J425W/J430W/J435W
MFC-J220/J265W/J270W/J410/J410W/J415W
DCP-J725DW/J525W/J125/J315W

Mine is removed from the MFC-J625DW and is marked CMC2P0410-V4-E, and CC193-9-C-S3-E-1 on the side. According to Brother manuals, they should be interchangeable with version CMC2P0410-V3-E that OP mentioned.
