Problem with TFT Display - 7" #947

by BorisFR on Thu Mar 14, 2013 3:55 pm

Hello.
I just receive it and I have a big interrogation : there is hole to put thing as the DC but in the hole there is nothing...
Where it is written DC12V there is the video cable : http://www.diverstrucs.com/adafruit/947 ... 14_002.jpg
Pictures of other connectors :

What can I do ?

I'm doing nothing, I'm waiting for your input.

Please take a full photo of the red wired connector including the front of the contacts. Do not power the screen yet!

Yes, seems to me you found it :)
Here is the picture : http://www.diverstrucs.com/adafruit/947/WP_20130316_010.jpg
Is it the DC connector ?
I'm still waiting your feedback before connecting.
