Hi John
Luckily I've found a full monitor which works fine on 12VDC [one from the TV scrap container at the council dump :D ] so the bricked adaptor board can wait. I would like to take up your offer of help at some point in the future - perhaps in August when my wife is away with her mum.

Also the Lenovo Idea Centre Q180 computer that we both have does indeed work on 12VDC rather than the prescribed 19V . I just had to try the 12 - 19 VDC converter first which blew fuses and made smoke :shock:. Luckily the computer, my new distrubtion board and my entire system survived.
cheers

Is the controller an RTD2662 by any chance ?

I bought a second driver adaptor board to go with a Hannsg monitor. This one came without remote control. It had a good image on the panel straightaway. There was just the Chinese on screen menu. The vendor sent the helpful images below to get me into English.

I hope this is helpful.
