well, you could take the whole camera assembly and tear it out of the case and use your vid output. I have been thinking of doing that...

Reviving old lcd screens is a very grey area due to the bespoke nature of the controller elements involved. Although there are standards followed such as LVDS, TTL, and panel link the actual interfacing varies greatly not only between, but within brands.

The most realistic hope you have of getting that screen working is by getting hold of the lcd controller within the camera and isolating its signal, control and power inputs. Unless you have a service manual or alot of experience with LCD controller electronics then your luck is out :(

If you were to find a supplier of suitable controller boards you'd probably find, as I have, that they are ridiculously expensive.
