Help with finding technical info on a screen

Post by Robochris » Sat Jan 20, 2018 7:35 am

How or where can I find out which pins do what on a new screen?

I’m not too sure how to ask this question.

I’m considering a new retropie project to build on my own without a guide. I was looking to use a vita or psp and would want to use the factory screen. Is there data out there that shows which pins are what. Or how can I test them.


Thanks!
