I was just wondering what is the quality difference between the one compiler posted and the one wiggy used?

Thanks!! :mrgreen:



I bought this exact one, but I ran into a wierd burn in/ghosting problem where certain images would remain 'ghosted' into the image, if you you look at my older post with pictures you can see what I mean.. i left the sonic the hedgehog demo running for about 2 minutes and when it flashes to the white 'SEGA' screen, you can still see the 'score' and 'time' burned into the screen at the top left.. I believe this is a temporary effect, but it can be a little annoying at times, otherwise i really liked this screen, it was good contrast, good speed, good colors... but that 'temporary burn in' annoyed me.

There isn't an answer. You can't rely on getting the same screen every time. Just hope to get lucky.

Hi. Got a nomad a few weeks ago, and i'll do all these mods, they'll help me a lot !
I got this screen and battery from Dx, but couldn't test the screen yet, haven't found a
12v adapter for it. And i'm without an av cable (waiting for it to arrive), but a friend will help me.

The only thing is that i almost forgot to buy the battery pack, and only today bought a charger for the battery, so mod battery will take a long time to complete.
But maybe in the next 1-2 weeks i'll do the screen mod, as soon as i open my nomad.

Thanks !!

Yes . I found one that fit's the space good. It runs as low as 5v and it has good color,contrast,clarity.

It has the 3 buttons on the back, but I just clip them off with a pair of clippers so they are flush but can still be pushed if needed.

I also use the built in wire so I don't have to solder any wires to the lcd board, just 3 wires to the Nomad. Power , ground, composite.

This is it :
