What is the connector called that is being used?
What is the name of the connector or connection for the display? My player broke and i am thinking about a good way to put the display to good use. Is there any hope?
Peter, that is just the ribbon cable and a 51 pin fpc connector. In order for you to utilize the LCD display in some other manner, you will need the datasheet for the LCD. That will tell you what the connections on the display are and what signal they carry. Take a look at the LCD and see if you find any manufacturers markings. Armed with that, you will have to find a circuit that can drive the LCD and a backlight to illuminate it. Not an easy task, but with some luck there is always the chance that something can be made to fit. Hope this helps, good luck.
