CCFL : some experiments

A while ago i took apart some screens with CCFL backlight, and then did nothing with it.

It's time to change that ! 



What is used : 

  • Old PSU
  • CCFL inverter bought in a electronic shop
  • Some CCFL took from screens
  • some electric wire
  • soldering iron
  • soldering tin

the CCFL tube is longer than the Inverter can handle, that's why i played with it,with a smaller one i got a geeky desk light.

here is the lighting circuit : 



here is the result : 


And in the dark now : 



Ok, This was pointless ... but that was fun to play with
