Coby DP-151 Photo Keychain - LCD Extraction and Interrogation

After extracting the LCD out of the Coby DP-151 photo keychain, I connected it to a MAXQ2000 microcontroller EV kit I have lying around. After coding up a storm, I was able to get this tri-color display. The controller chip on the LCD glass is compatible with the PCF8833. See tubetime.us/?p=22 for more details.

 

Spark Fun has a similar LCD for sale, but it costs $20 and uses the slower serial interface. Amazon lists the Coby DP-151 for $9.99.
