I was wondering if it is possible to transform a TFT LCD into an AMOLED as both are active matrixes. The composition seems to be similar.


AMOLED components


LCD TFT components

And if it wouldn't be possible, could I at least keep just the part that is very hard to manufacture (the TFT itself)? Maybe do the rest myself?

    \$\begingroup\$ LCD TFTs and AMOLED displays work in very different ways, their construction is also very different. The fact that they both use Thin Film Transistors (TFT) is irrelevant. It should be obvious that one cannot be converted into the other. Again you need to learn more basic stuff like I suggested before. \$\endgroup\$ Mar 9, 2021 at 21:30
