I'm trying to find out if this LCD uses eDP, or MIPI DSI, or something else so that I can choose a replacement LCD, and I'm a beginner at this.

enter image description here

I wasn't able to find it on the manufacturer's website, but noticed that they produce LCDs with different interfaces.

The FPC connector has 40 pins.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Syed, I'm asking about the video interface: eDP, LVDS, MIPI DSI, etc. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ You can't understand what the interface is by just looking at the connector. It could be anything. If you measure a resistance of 100 Ohms across each pair then it could be MIPI DSI or LVDS as one covers the other. I'm seeing 6 pairs separated by ground lanes, so it could be LVDS with three pairs for EVEN (E0, E1, CLKE) and three pairs for ODD (O0, O1, CLKO). But, again, it could be anything. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 26, 2021 at 14:54

    \$\begingroup\$ If your goal is to find a replacement LCD, just search for the reference, you'll find cheap replacement parts. Even if you could find the type of interface, most are not normalised: number of pins, order of the pins, number of channels, resolution, voltages, and so on can vary a lot. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @apadana Indeed. Even within the same brand they may change pinouts from one model to another apparently similar one. \$\endgroup\$

It's probably 8-bit MIPI. No guarantees though--so contact the manufacturer.

Go here: https://www.kingdisplay.net.cn/en/products.php?keyword=kd101&serachsub=&page=1

And notice that most of the 40-pin connectors in the same series are all 8-bit MIPI (although one is LVDS--so caveat emptor).
