I would say it would, but will the touch swap out to any other CF-52?



Paul! Now! we found out that it will not be straight forward from 13" TS to 15" swap. But it is possible to make a 15" screen to have a ts for GU unit after we solve this compatibility issue.

Anybody can send me the bios for G model with 15" screen. My guess it will solve the problem. The schem. for CF-52MK1 has no help.

Thanks,

teo

I can send you the bios in a CF-52GCMBXAM packaged in the complete unit. 5360 hours....nice. :D Or I send it to you and you make it a Touchscreen for me? rofl
This might become my office computer.
Where will you put the red led's? rofl

Good luck,

Jeff

Does it fit on the email? Lol....

For TS, we need a new 15" ts panel which are available on the market using the same USB port for TS(four wire to be exact) like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/15-4-inch-4-Wir ... 3f1b4172f6.

Well for red led, we can use those supply line for Emmissive backlit keyboard like on CF29,30 & 31 keyboard.

Or for USB port it will be for the neo 6 Ublox GPS instead of TS. There a lot of possibilities.

ohlip

Man! don't be to excited. Clean it up the floor first, lol....

No, seriously. The GUN unit has two red led light on the side of the bezel that will illuminate directly to the keyboard when you want to use it on the dark places. It has supply voltage of 3 or 5Vdc I think, which is perfect for modding to use the backlit keyboard.

Now! Jef! have you seen the big picture? It has already a builtin hotkey/control for line. You only need to rewire the supply line going to the third cable of the emissive.

Woot! as Rob said! Success..............ssss... :pbjt: :pbjt: :pbjt:

I've got now a working emmissive keyboard on CF-52GU.... model with four level of control as like on CF-29, 30 and 31.

:pbjt: :pbjt: But not as bright as those on CF-30. It may need a regulator as it has only 3.3VDC, Lol....

If all CF-52 has this option connector on the mobo. all can have mod to have an emissive keyboard.

Now! my problem is this freaking display. I can't flash the bios yet. There is no option on boot menu for flash drive only for usb floppy. :( :(

I live in a dark place, (solar power...one lamp on at a time)and I will tell you now the red leds on the regular CF-52GUN beat any emissive keyboard. Which is why for indoor use a GUN beats anything. Including this CF-53JULA***/BLKB. Just saying.
