Dell Studio One 19 Conversion

Sun Mar 12, 2017 11:28 pm

I have a Dell Studio One 19 that the either the mother board or processor has failed. I have tried a new replacement power supply, no luck there. I want to convert it to a Rasberry Pi 3. The LCD/touchscreen are still good. The Pi has a DSI out put and the Dell has a LVDS input. My question is there a way to make the compatible? Another question i have will the PI be able to handle the 18.5 Lcd panel? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The DSI is only for the Official Touchscreen

You would need a LVDS Convertor Board to drive the Screen.

Hi,

Not sure if this is helpful for your or not but have a look at how Raspi.tv used an old Dell screen.

This LCD driver may work

I.e Google spare LCD screen for studio one and you find

This gives you the LCD model number. Then Google HDMI LCD driver for that model
And you get the link I first posted
