How to make a DIY monitor (simple version):




  • Sorry, maybe I don’t understand the language well. Was the original screen already tactile or is it thanks to the controller?

  • The problem with here is that we can't buy any of the material to DIY ourself. Most of the tool used are hard to get also🤦‍♂️

  • @12:00 he says "Earlier I provisionally added some wires to the control board's speaker output, so that these sockets could be easily hooked up to the boards internal amplifier allowing the drivers to just be clipped in place when required." Diagram please or video showing and explaining, I'm kind of new to this. But my father in law has a machine shop that I can use whenever I'd like to use. So was that just something you wanted to keep how to do to yourself sir? Now I have a touch screen monitor I attached to my PS5 and I don't know where to wire and attach the speakers to. This is supposed to be a D.I.Y project, I can't D.I.M.S if I don't know how to connect the speakers as you did, I hope you left a wiring diagram in the description for us. Other than that brilliant, beautiful, and very useful. I keep 2, 10,000 mAh battery banks ready which actually allowed me to get 12 hours of continuous use once the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra battery life 🔋 was depleted. Including the internal Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra battery and the 2 battery banks I got from Wal-Mart for $9.99 each, I would say with the screen turned on without speakers (because someone didn't tell us how to connect the wires to the board's internal amplifier) I get about 13 1/2 hours of continuous use because I use my Pulse 3D Wireless Headset with my PS5. Would be great if you could have added a BT (Bluetooth) feature so we could connect to Bluetooth speakers and have surround sound. I watch movies on my PS5 also in true 4K!

  • I really like your videos - especially ones like this with some novelty functionality. BUT it's very bad advice to use something highly conductive like brass as a DIY housing as it's just way to easy to short some connections and destroy all your electronics with that. So, please - people at home - use MDF or whatever plastics you like to recreate this, just don't use brass/aluminium or some other metal and destroy your weekend dreams with it!

    • Especially soldering a whole brass strip right next to a working screen (as mentioned at 7:55 ) is a REALLY bad idea

  • Umm honestly, DIY Perks, good job, but i was wonder if there was perhaps a way to find a 5Volt trace on the "screen controller" and use that to charge the battery? I have a feeling like you tried it, but it maybe impacted the screen performance? If not, then im happy to hear your feedback! Great video.
