Gentlemen here is what I am trying to do if possible.
I have an older out of date laptop with a color screen in it.
I would like to know if there is any way to use this screen to view video.
Way too many wires for me to just have a guess at it but I figure if it can be done someone here knows how to do it.

Ultimate final goal is to be able to RCA jack video into it.

Photos available if this seems feasable

Your going to have to give us more information. For example, make and model. Some laptops have a simple vga connection going to the screen, on others its proprietary.

Whit a bit of research, you might be able to find a pinout diagram and compare it to a VGA pinout. From there it would take a composit to vga converter. Image quality will suffer from the conversion plus the high res of the lcd will show every flaw in the composit image. VGA is prob. around 1024 lines where the composit is around 240 I think.

Starting to look like garbage. Walmart sells a 9" DVD player which I could probably input into and save myself all the trouble.

Nonsence!!!! Where's the fun in that? Tinkering with things to make them better or find a difference use is far more gratifying than just buying something at walmart
