I received a broken PlayStation Portable the other day and decided to try and use the 4.3 LCD screen in a custom Xbox 360 console. Here is the .PDF for the panel. Page 6 and 7 contain the pin-out for the screen and back-light (40 & 4 wire ribbons). Here is the VGA pinout from the Xbox. As you can see the Xbox VGA requires 1 of each color data signals, while the LCD panel calls for 8 including a LSB and MSB data sig. Can I group the panels colored data sigs. into one so I can attach it to the VGA port? Any information would be great. Thanks in advance.


The LCD is not compatible in any way with the Xbox 360 VGA.

VGA is an analog system, the LCD screen is digital.

You will require a system which can sample and interpret a VGA signal into a digital form, then output the right LCD signals to drive the screen. It's not a trivial task and requires in-depth knowledge of both the VGA signalling system and the LCD screen in question.
