is it possible for me to make something out of it such as a PS2 screen?

Anyone have any ideas? Spoke with a friend and he said that all I need to do is hook up some AV cables thru one part..and a power source thru the other and it should work, is this right?

Anyone build a system themselves and have any parts they remebered they needed to buy? any help would be great....

The screen is from a Toshiba Laptop and was in working condition...

Right now I am just trying to see if it will work and not worried about how it will look, that can come later =)

Yes you can hook it to a playstation, however it is much more difficult then it sounds. The LCD screen requires a controller. These controllers are quite expensive and somewhat hard to find. The only place that I can find that sells them retail is http://www.earthlcd.com/




Go to http://www.earthlcd.com/controllers.htm and scroll down to the controller NTSC VIDEO INPUT TFT LCD CONTROLLER. It costs $400 and it may or may not support your particular panel model. There is no other way to hook the LCD panel up to a video source. I purchased a 13" screen off E-bay for $10 hoping I could hook it up to the PS2, but then I found I needed a $400 controller to use it. :-(
