I just got an Epson graphical display off an internet auction. The model number is EG7504C-RS and it has 320x200 pixels. I have the data sheet, but it doesent tell anything about what controller it uses (if it has any), only pinout, function specifications and adressing. I tried to connect the display directly to the lpt port guided by a schematic for a simular display from Liquid-MP3 ( It basically had the same ports, only in a different pattern, so i conneced it to fit the data sheet of my display. I also added a supply voltage of 3,3V and a LED voltage (display) of 2V as specified in the data sheet.

The problem is that nothing really happends when i connect it to the parallell port. I didnt know what controller to use so i tried a bounch of them, and a few different programs. At one point the backlight lit up, but i havent been able to reproduce the effect. I also tried to control the ports directly to match the display on/off control, but i didnt get it to work.

So my question is, what can i try now? I'm also not sure if pin 1 on the lcd cable starts from the top or the bottom, any suggestions here? I will gladly add some pictures or info from the data sheet if that could clear things up.

Help would be greatly appreciated! Sorry about the long post :oops:

Well you mention it has '11-18:DB0-DB7' that means it has a controller onboard, likely a SED 133x.
How about a pic of the backside and a link to the tech specsheet?
That Hyundai_HG25504 wiring scheme is not for the SED133x, so that would not work.

Hmm, sure about that ? That HG25504 wiring from Eelco looks very much like SED1330 to me.

:oops: my mistake, i see now in the spec sheet it's a SED1330 alright.
So that scheme *should* work!

Thanks alot for the reply, i will post a picture as soon as i get my cam back in a week or so. I only have the specs on paper, but hopefully i can get it scanned.

I hope you will check back on this post in a week or so :D

I recently saw some information that would suggest that this display would use the SED1590 controller.

But if you get the datasheet in digital form I'd be interested having a look.

Hi again,

I finally got the datasheet scanned, and uploaded it here. Sorry about the *.tif-format, but i didnt have the software to change it. If you have problems seeing all the files, i also zipped it for download here.

I will also get some pictures out in a few days. Thanks for helping :D

: LCD displays model EG7504C-RS with LED backlight and onboard Epson SED1590 controller.

Not much info about this controller:

The Seiko Epson SED1590 is a 181K dual port SRAM Segment Driver with an on-chip controller. The SED1330 is a CMOS Graphic LCD driver
