User Manual


If you are installing the LCD into our HTPC case series, the first thing is to ensure you take off the LCD black tape attached to the LCD window before you install the LCD. The tape is to block the see-through clear window if you decide not to upgrade with a LCD display on the case.

Right before you start the driver and M-Play download, verify the LCD is light up with the initial screen. See the product page for sample screen.

The initial screen will light up if you connect the USB and Power Cord to your PSU correctly when system is on. The USB connector is a 4 pin single slot USB connector, it is labeled with VCC/+5V; +D; -D; GND for each wire; simply rule applied, red wire is VCC/+5V; black wire is "GND". Match the wire to your motherboard USB diagram pin layout.
