  1. Lol,  it was too early in the discussion maybe  Sorry
  2. Take a look: There was no chance that I could find it with the search function but... By looking deeper and deeper in the forum I fall into this tread.  
  3. Yes ! Theses are good tips ! I'll try by myself now with standard connectors. I have to learn and it's a useful exercise. And with the files you provided it will help too. Thanks !
  4. So... It take way too much time to start using eagle. What a nightmare for a such simple board: Note that i havent check the reverse/mirror pin thing yet because I have a question first: how to make the upper solder pads to touch the border of the board ? This way it will be possible to solder this board to a 90° angle to the LCD with no wire. And then I will find how to add the ribbon connector schematic..
  5. Hi ! I'm currently reading the Midibox NG manual. Is it helpful if I write some parts here that (in my opinion) could be changed ? Like in this page: http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_ng_manual_fs.html  "Today we would prefer to use Fairlightiii's premade PCB solutioninstead - more informations about this once I get my hands on the PCBs! :-)" As theses PCB will never be reedited, it is no more relevant ? So. If comments like that is cool for you, I can continue. Or if it bother you, I can stop. But please note that by using my phone to read the doc and write on the forum, I have no way to format and use the code tool.
  6. Hi ! I'm happy to say that the core is okay, i've soldered my second LCD and... it's working GREAT ! See the lasts pictures ;) https://photos.app.goo.gl/5bR4r2ivZe5dgYYW9 @TK. I've added three of them in the Gallery, please fell free to use them if you like.

  10. Clear to me ! Thanks a lot ! Lesson learned : check, double check, triple check before power up !
  11. Oh I see the triangle in the first photo ! I did miss a big I formation then, thank you ! Is there a page with ribbon tip and tricks ?  And sorry that I didn't understand you the first time. Language barrier maybe ;-)
  12. It doesn't look true... Here is what happened when I clamped the ribbon (with V0 at pin number 04) : ________________________ |15 13 11 09 07 05 03 01 | |16 14 12 10 08 06 04 02 | __________----___________ And I can't mechanically change this order can I ? The red strip of my ribbon will always be clamped to the top right of this schematic (The last wire will alway be at the bottom left too). The two opposite side of ribbon cable will alway be in diagonal, top right / bottom left as i understand. Did I miss something ?
  13. The multimeter as show say "it doesn't". The V0 "bip" on the wire 4. And yes it is like Hitachi 
  14. I'm back from the garage. It's -1°C ... cold. Anyway here is a google album with the pictures i have taken, just under the midi-notes attribution chart: https://photos.app.goo.gl/5bR4r2ivZe5dgYYW9 You can see where is the notch of the ribbon head, the big clear labels on the LCD PCB, the labels hidden under the "big black plastic of the ribbon port that hide" and finally, how I test and found where the V0 is.     Please not that I've tried to de-crimp the ribbon yesterday, but it was well crimped before the incident.
