LCD Giveaway Contest

John over at has gotten his hands on a bunch of small lcd screens off of ebay. Trouble is that he has no idea how to use them. He can not find any data on the devices. He decided to host a contest. If anyone can send him the data that he needs to get one of these screens to work, he will send 6 of them to that person.

Here are the rules for the contest:

1) To win the controller half of this deal, the documentation that you send MUST include all of the internal registers, initialization and set-up commands, timing, and voltage levels. You’re no dummy, it has to include everything I need to know to make one of these things work.

2) The controller half will be considered ‘won’ after I successfully get a display to work using your information. That should only take a couple of days.

3) To win the connector half, the seller must be in North America (The USA or Canada), have a low or no minimum order, and be willing to sell the connectors 5 or 6 at a time.

4) The winners will be determined by the time/date received as indicated by my email software.

5) If the winners are in the U.S. or Canada, I’ll pay the postage. Otherwise, you’ll have to cover the shipping charges.

Here is the information that he has on the device:

* Plenty of folks sell this display on eBay, but I can’t find a single project using them.
* The display is a 128X128, 65,536 color, TFT display with a white LED backlight.
* It was used on the Nokia 6230 cell phone but NOT the 6230i.
* The Nokia part number is 4850339
* The display was manufactured by Sharp Electronics, and their part number is LS015B8UA02C
* The display connector has 24 pins and from the Nokia 6230 service manual they are:
o 8 data lines

o 1 write
o 1 reset
o 1 TearingEffect (whateverthehell that is)
