    Tablet Display to reuse

    I have an old tablet - Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (SM - T211)

    It is almost dead - it can display only first screen of regular mode (with its model name) or two screens of download mode (Continue/Reboot and Downloading) and in any situation I can't see anything else. Also no communication with Odin/Heimdall, so I cannot upload any (official or not) build to restore the tablet.

    To be honest - it isn't worth of long fight for life.

    But - the tablet has pretty fine display. It will be nice to use it - with digitzer or not - in some DYI project, driven by Raspberry or Arduino (although Arduino may be not enough to handle such screen, but maybe, if the screen uses i2c - why not? ).


    Does any one have such experience? Is there some documentation? How to work with it? I guess, that LCD itself and digitizer are two separate cases?

    Re: Tablet Display to reuse

    Hi,

    if the screen uses i2c
    The display has 600 x 1024 pixels x 16 million color depth.
    This is 1.8 million bytes.
    With an I2C standard data rate of 400kbits/s one full screen update then takes 45 seconds.

    Do you really think it could be I2C controlled?

    Re: Tablet Display to reuse

    With this knowledge - probably not :). So no chance for Arduino, right? But in general, any idea how to use it? Is this possible at all?
