I have the InterAct Mobile Monitor 5.4 for the gamecube...On the back of the screen itself there are a mess of wires. I figured it was one big plug, but upon tugging on it all the wires pulled free and were immediately a mess. I'm looking for the pinout so I can put these wires back in and get the lcd going in my slimbox. I tried following EverestX's guide he made but our screens are far too different. If anyone has the gamecube version, and wants to open if for a second, or thinks they can help me with the pinout I would be grateful. Thanks.

what brand is the actual screen? (says on the back on a sticker). if you have the Sharp LM6Q401 or Casio CMV54NT04P, here is the pinout for that:

Back of LCD:
1 - NC
2 - Blue
3 - Red
4 - +12v
5 - Gnd
6 - NC
7 - Composite Sync
8 - Green
9 - +12v
10 - Gnd

note: on mine (sharp) pin 10 was also not connected (NC)

hope that information was relevant to your problem, and if there are any mistakes, or if it was all completely and totally wrong, please tell me.

good luck biggrin.gif

Hahahah. Sweet. I indeed have the Sharp LM6Q401. Perfect. Thanks a million bro!

On my sleeved wires I have :
Black
Yellow
Red
White

And my single wires I have :
Red
Green
Blue

So my pinout should be :
1 - NC
2 - Blue
3 - Red
4 - +12v
5 - Gnd
6 - NC
7 - Composite Sync
8 - Green
9 - ??
10 - NC

That leaves my white wire spare?

ok, this might sound a wee bit crazy, but I just looked at the back of my screen (should have done that in the first place, instead of just pulling up my bookmark for that page, duh), and apparently the colors of the wires do not correspond with their function whatsoever (ie: red wire = red input, blue wire = blue input, etc.) so here is the pinout of my connector.....also my sleeved wires contained a pink instead of a red, but other than that, our wires are identical:

1 - NC
2 - Pink
3 - White
4 - Blue
5 - Black
6 - NC
7 - Green
8 - Yellow
9 - Red
10 - NC

this screen has been tested and works, so I am pretty sure that has to be the right pinout. sorry if you've already connected them the other way, but this is how it should be done.

cheers, and hope everything goes smoothly biggrin.gif

Alright here is a rough diagram...

------------------
| sharp sticker |
------------------

1 2 3 4 5
--------------
| 0 0 0 0 0 |
| 0 0 0 0 0 |
--------------
6 7 8 9 10

1 - NC
2 - Red
3 - White
4 - Blue
5 - Black
6 - NC
7 - Green
8 - Yellow
9 - Red
10 - NC

Thats what I have now...I tried both ways now and I still have no video. I am positive the screen works because I tested it before opening it. However..There is a red wire coming from behind the screens shielding. This wire was connected to the board that controls power and such. It has come loose and I soldered it back to where I believe it came from. Could be wrong though...I cant think of anything else.

Thanks for all the help, henmill.

Hello to all that needs this info, all the above and on several web sites as well are wrong... I know this to be a fact. After several hours with this problem,IE...the wires coming off the rear conn,( what a poor design) I found these posts...BUT they are incorrect. If you remove the rear cover, 3 screews, you will find the conn is silked screened with the pin #, which are as follows.

top of board.
6 7 8 9 10
o o o o o
o o o o o
1 2 3 4 5

So the correct pinout is this.

1 or 10 is ground / Black
2 - Blue
3 - White
4 - pink
5 - N/C
6 - N/C
7 - Red
8 - Yellow
9 - Green

Red,Blue are vcc. +12vdc

White,Pink,Yellow are the video R-G-B

Green is +5vdc

Black is GND.

The loose red wire that soders to the top of a resistor just below a silver pot, Vr1

Hope this helps. Ron.
