Small, Portable, Battery Powered Lcd Screen


I'm building a halloween costume that i want to have a small lcd screen be a part of it. Here's what i need:

- A small screen, maybe 4x6in or so?

- No thicker than 3 inches deep. - It will display a picture that i will design and upload to it. - Needs to run on battery power. Disposable batteries would be best since i could replace on the fly as needed. Need it to be on for about about 5-6 hours. -Nothing too heavy

Any ideas? I've been eying digital photo frames but i cant really find any battery powered ones that'll last longer than a few minutes and require a wall recharge to keep going.

Small Powered Monitors For A Small Hdtv

I just ordered a dell s2209w lcd (1080p, 21. 5") to use as a small hdtv with my workstation. I also need some small speakers to connect to my digital cable box. I just want some clean, simple audio since the tv will be tuned to news m-f or a football game on the weekend. Cheap is good for this purchase. Think these would do a decent job?

Using Different Lcd Screen For Laptop

Will a laptop not work if its connected to a different lcd? This is pure curiosity. I know that the lcd might not fit, but could you theoretically change the lcd screens of two laptops or do they have different little connectors. Or even if they fit, would they not work? I've always wondered this since i've changed my laptop's screen.

Repairing Laptop Lcd Screen

Have a friend who just purchased an hp pavilion ze5000 laptop but the screen has a "white" screen, the laptop shows fine when connected to any other monitors. I am thinking that this might be a great opportunity for me to get a multimeter and learn how to use it and gain some experience/knowledge in repair but i don't wish to mess up anything in trying or misdiagnose something and have my friend purchase the wrong parts. I already have some great documentation for this but don't wish to have only that documentation to work from so i was wondering if there is anyone here experienced in laptop lcd screen repair who can guide me through the process please or if i can ask specific questions concerning the repair attempt to get some help?

Screen Dimensions Of Lcd Monitors

I am looking into getting a few lcd monitors, 3 to be specific, for my computer at home. I'm sure a lot of you are wondering why in the world i would need three monitors. I currently have 2 at work at quite often wish i had three. I also want to get a large wide screen for viewing movies as my main monitor and 2 smaller on each side for support. Here's where i'm having some trouble. I'm deciding between either a 20. 1 widescreen or 22 widescreen (the 22 just came out for not much more money, but i wanna wait on some reviews before deciding). For my additional two monitors, they will be mounted by arms to each side of this widescreen monitor, but i want the height of the screens to match up. I can't seem to find many sites that show the height and width of the actual screen to compare. I'm hoping some people out there can post of some dimensions (height and width) along with the designated screen size (diagonal), also if it's widescreen. Or if someone knows a site out there with a chart of these dimensions. Hmm, maybe i should just visits fry's electronics with a tape measure. P. S. If you have a crt, please don't post, i know they lose about an inch from the screen, which will totally mess up my numbers.

Usefulness Of Logitech G19 Lcd Screen

I have 4 gaming keyboards i like and i am trying to make a final decision. I am wondering about the actual real life usefulness of the logitech g19 keyboard. Does it really help in games?

Do you have to update the keyboard software to include future games as they are released or does it just figure something out automatically?

Does it have a usefulness outside of gaming?

For all you g19 owners, how often does this improve productivity?

Does it have a usefulness in other applications such as photo and/or video editing?

I've read and watched reviews and they don't go much into the lcd screen. Maybe cause there's not much to show, i don't know. Let me know what you all think about the lcd screen. I need to start thinking with higher standards to try and eliminate these keyboards to 1.

Make Lcd Computer Monitor Into A Tv Screen

I am wondering how i can make my lcd computer monitor into a t. V. Screen? I am looking at a few monitors. One has hdmi and one just has dvi and vga. I have a dishnetwork box without hdmi so i am using component. I was wondering if all i would need to do is get a hdmi to component cord and plug it in? Or do i have to mess with the setting or other things? Also i heard you can get hd channels over the air with a hd antenna. Is that true? And how would it look on my monitor if it can support 1080p?

It normally works fine until i start moving the laptop or the screen around. But if i do the screen normally flickers black and goes back to normal once i stop moving it.

Fix Lcd Screen On A Digital Camera

How do you fix lcd screen on a digital camera? Answer:- replacing a cameras lcd is very easy to do. You can usually buy the lcd cheap on auction sites. It might be better to purchase a broken camera with an intact screen. Make sure you get the same model. Take apart the camera and simply pull the connectors out from the end that is attached to the camera and push the connectors back in (might take some force) with the new screen. Although i have had no experience in this exact area, i would hazard a guess that the expense of replacing the lcd panel would outweigh the cost of a new camera of equivalent capability. Nonetheless, the camera, if it has an optical viewfinder is still capable of providing great pictures. You do not need an lcd viewfinder. If you doubt the picture came out, then snap another. The world didn't have lcd panels before and they certainly don't need them now. See the related link below for examples on how to replace a digital camera's lcd screen.

Remove Dry Water Mark From Lcd Screen

How do i remove a dry water mark from an lcd screen? I was using a 'screen target' and it's left what looks like a dried up water mark on my screen - any idea how to remove it? My monitor is a 26" samsung t260, and it's a matte finish, not glossy. I've tried wiping it with a cloth but that hasn't worked. If i go out and get some screen wipes, will they help? Or do i just need to leave it to dry out?

Dell Lcd Monitor With Black Screen Problem

19" dell lcd monitor with black screen - what is the electronic cause of this monitor problem?

Answer:- usually, it's the backlight, which can be confirmed by shining a torchlight into the darkened dell monitor screen. You might see a dim silhouette of the desktop area if the computer has booted up. Replacing the backlight should solve the problem. The other reason (electronics) could be dry joints on the monitor's inverter board. This can be the case if your dell monitor has a bright & blank screen. Dry joints cause voltage drops, which can result in a black screen.

Asus Lcd Monitor Displaying Grey Screen

Last night my little sister had her friend over, and while i was asleep apparently her friend was using my computer. All i know is she had a webcam hooked up to it. But today when i go to use it, the monitor was displaying a grey screen, and it was totally unresponsive. I couldn't even hard reset. To turn it off i had to flip the switch on my psu. When i rebooted it still showed the gray screen but after a while, like 10 times longer than normal, it finally loaded and displayed properly. I couldn't figure it out, so for the time being, i left it alone. I went back to look at it a few minutes ago. It had been maybe 4 hours. And it responded this time when i moved the mouse, but the screen was grey again. I rebooted (button finally worked again) and still grey screen.

My Apc Battery Backup Need A New Battery

My apc battery backup keeps telling me that it needs a new battery because the current one keeps failing it's self-tests. Apc wants $80 for a new battery. My current ups is an apc back-ups ns 1250. When i look at the "current status" on the computer it says it's providing 192 watts of power. It can go up to 780. So i'm thinking it's a bit overkill for my setup. Do you think i should replace the battery or get a new, less powerful ups?

Powered Usb Hub

Since using the front usb ports with ich5r fried my mobo, i decided to invest in a powered hub to remove the risk of it happening again. So i went down to maplin (uk electronics store, kind of like radio shack combined with a consumer electronics store. ) And picked up a 7 power, powered, all singing all dancing hub. Nice black look, but that's besides the point. Now i've only just noticed this (with having only re-assembled my rig yesterday and only turned it off twice since then). But because the hub is externally powered, it's force feeding the computer, causing the front power led to remain on (and also the power led on my wireless keyboard receiver dongle). Now i'm no trained technician (yet anyway ) but it really shouldn't be doing this. Worst part is i can't turn back on with the hub plugged for some reason. . Frustrating. Edit: oh yeh, and i found the manufacturer's website. Not much to go on. They have one generic pdf (mine hub 40 btw) that covers the sales pitch for all their hubs, but nothing detailed .

7 Port Powered Usb Hub

I've been trying to find a good powered usb 2. 0 7 port hub. Everything i find either has some strange shape that looks, for lack of a better word, stupid or has all the ports on the front of the hub. All i'm looking for is a normal shaped hub (square box) with all ports (including power) on the back. The only thing i want on the front are indicator lights or nothing. Years ago i used to see them all the time but now they all have some or all ports on the front or are some funky shape. I need it to be powered since i'll be plugging a few items into it that obtain their power from the usb port (g15, g9, n52te, etc. ). I also have a usb mic but its usb 1. 1 and would need a hub where having a 1. 1 device plugged in won't affect the high speed of the 2. 0 devices (if they even make such a hub). I have a few other items but they are just data or have their own external power source (ups link to the pc etc. ).

Computer Won't Stay Powered Off

An out of the blue problem, whenever i try to shut down my computer or put it in sleep mode, it'll just fire right back up. It'll go through the shut down process, power off for a second, and then immediately fire back on. However, if i hold down the power button on the computer, it will stay off. Only when i try to shut down through windows 7 does it fire back up. I updated my mobo's bios to latest version and that didn't help. The only thing i can think of is there's a device in my device manager that is turning the computer back on, however this has only started a week ago so if this was the case wouldn't it have always been doing this? Any help is much appreciated! Build in sig but here's a summary:

Windows 7 64x rc1
E8500 cpu
Asus p-5q e
Xfire radeon 4850

Small Wireless Webcams

I need to purchase a wireless web cam that is pretty small and works well. We are having an issue with theft at our office and need to monitor one very small area where we keep some valuable and small items. We have 20 foot ceilings and there aren't too many places to mount a normal webcam. Also, i want to catch the person stealing, not just deter theft so it needs to be inconspicuous. Are the x10 cams worth anything? Or should i look for something else?

Cheap Small Computers

They don't have to be tiny, but looking at either building or buying 6 small computers for here at work. We are looking to have 6 monitors flat mounted into a 'desk' or sorts, and wanting 6 machines to run very basic programs(mostly reading pdf files, or word documents)

Any suggestions? Was looking at the dell hybrid studio, but these run $500 new, was looking at something cheaper if possible. Also, doesn't have to be quite that small.

Laptop With Small Pixels

Just wondering if anyone knows of any laptops with small pixels. To explain: i have an hp nx8220 laptop, which has a 15. 4" screen with 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is a pretty small pixel pitch. I love this. I have good eyes, and always too much on my screen. However, the laptop died this weekend. I'll be trying to repair it, but i'm also thinking of getting something new, but most laptops i see have a larger pixel size (most have a 1280 x 800 resolution for the same screen size) if anyone can point me to some models, i'd be very grateful.

Printer Printing So Small

Why is my printer printing so small?

Answer:- i'm guessing you're printing stuff from e-mail or the internet. This is a common problem that is associated with the monitor screen resolution and has nothing to do with the printer, it's setup or software. If you're using a specific software program, then you need to adjust your font size accordingly to print larger. Otherwise read the following. The following is for use with internet explorer 7, but may be the same or similar for other versions or web browsers. One way is to go to your menu bar at the top of your web browser, click on "file" then "print preview". At the top of the window there should be a small window with "shrink to fit" in it. Click the arrow on that box for a drop down list and choose something, like 90% (there is a custom option at the bottom of the list if you need to set something unique in between what's listed to set it to something that works best) and see how it changes the print size of what is to be printed out and choose the one that looks and works best for you without cutting off text somewhere. This will make it larger when printed out. Another way that usually works to make the print larger when printing internet stuff & emails is by changing the print view size on the screen to a larger size in your web browser (this is separate from your other setting you've already setup). Go to the menu bar at the top (i.e. Internet explorer), click on "view, " then "text size" then select a size like "larger" or "largest" (something higher than what you're currently set to. )

Sometimes adjusting the current window's magnification (lower right corner of screen or ctrl button + scroll wheel on mouse) can have an affect on print size. The only other method is to copy & paste the text into a text editing software like word and adjust the text size there. If you're using a text program, then you simply adjust the size of the text to a 12 or 14 point, or larger, font size (adjust depending on the font and size you need) and that should do the trick.

Thoughts On Small Computing Cluster

Doing some simulations for my graduate research and i am in need of a couple more machines to run it on. Currently running on a 3. 2ghz p4 w/ 3gb ram takes 18 hours. I need to be able to run faster than this and with multiple inputs. So i need some extra computers. It's a single threaded app so a faster dual core is much better than a quad. I can get some old optiplex for about 300 with 2. 8ghz p4 in them but the problem is that i need at least 2gb ram to run properly. And with it being older ram it's about 100 bump it up to 2gb each node. So with that i'm looking at $400/node. I think i can get a newer system from someone at that price point. I spec'ed out a dell inspiron 530n @ $429/node with e2140, 2gb ddr2 (and room to add more if i need) but it also has some things i feel could be trimmed (128mb geforce 8300gs). These are all going to be run headless so i don't need monitor/keyboard/mouse/nice video card. Also don't need windows as i'm running going to be running a stripped down ubuntu. Any suggestions on getting the price of the dell down a bit or somewhere else to look? I am looking at 4-8 nodes so i don't really have the time to build them myself.
