defective 2" lcds

Post by Park0721 »

After waiting about 6 months, I was pumped to finally finish my night vision goggle project. I pull out the LCDs, carefully solder red to red, black to black, and white to yellow (yellow is video output of my foxeer nightcat 3s) I then daisy chained all four together, when I wire it into a 6v output the back of each board popped, one or both transistors exploded on all four boards and now I am getting no video signal, just a white screen, and in some cases nothing at all/
I did everything I was supposed to. I am very distraught over this as I have put dozens of hours of work into this project and after multiple emails to support, and a 6 month waiting period for my product, they arrive and don't work. I have photos if neccesary.

This video shows how nothing is working

I gave the cameras 8.4 volts each. They had more than enough power.

One screen is white, and the other three are a dark grey flashing.
