    You can always come over ;):D
    It seems my display driver is not saving its source anymore. Any idea why this happened? And how to fix it?:blush:

    Hmm that’s very weird. Could it be caused by some powerlines glitches? I am asking since you relocated the inductors on the lcd driver board

    I'll look into this later today. Thank you;)
    When I remember correctly there were no issues at first after the trim. I was thinking about a short on the bottom side of the board, caused by the LCD metal plate. Maybe the frame is too thin there. :rothink:

    I still have this problem with the input . Although it worked once today and kept the VGA input. (I really have no idea why this problem exists)
    Nonetheless I wired up the USB port.

    At startup I need to pull one trigger for the screen to change to VGA... I could just build an electric trigger for that. What do you think?

    I think Bocud had the same problem at some point(granted different driver and screen), he trimmed his board, but it would keep on going to AV, when he wanted to go to HDMI, a pullup that got cut off fixed it

    Ah ok. Thank you for the help. I think that might be the problem here... But I don't know where to put the pullup in :?:. I had an issue with one resistor of the source pin. I resoldered it yesterday, but no change. I'll try to find some scans of the board. (I made pictures before trimming, but I lost them somehow:facepalm:)

    Did you trim more after your first post here, or is that post-trim?

    A tiny little bit on the connectors of the VGA port. But I did not cut any important traces with this o.O

    It is working!!
    I had the honor to look at a blueprint of the board and I saw that I forgot to resolder one line :facepalm::blush:

    Hey guys,
    Today I'm going on vacation with my wife and in the past few days I haven't had the time to work much on my portable. But I have everything I need in place and just wanted to show you, that I managed to keep the system at ~17mm height.

    I've been following some of your work in the dark>:D Excellent job making it so thin. The simplicity of the internal design is a force to be reckoned with. I look forward to seeing the completed results.
