  3. First solderless Atari Lynx LCD mod kit from BennVenn announced

Here's a bit of great news straight from BennVenn...

'Drop In' Lynx LCD kit - V5 in production!

Whats new?

A few changes to the solder pads, they're now in line with the solder pads on the Lynx motherboard making it easier to find the right connection.The option for SOLDERLESS install! Using the optional ribbon, there is no soldering required to install this LCD kit (LynxII only). Just remove the old LCD, Install the new LCD, insert the ribbon and you're done!. Brightness will be fixed at 100% without the brightness pad soldered and you'll loose the scanline option. Soldering a single wire will give access to brightness/scanline control.

Crowbar protection - Lynx power supply circuits fail taking out the entire lynx and causing irreparable damage. While not 100% guaranteed to save your lynx, we've added protection circuitry to effectively short out your 5v rail and shut down your system if it climbs to a dangerous level. There is no other protection built into your lynx to help combat a power supply failure so we're hoping this small addition can possibly save your motherboard should the worst happen.

Pre-Orders will go live once we have shipping confirmation from our factory.
