    I have installed an LCD to my Nomad but I'm getting some slight flickering. I also feel the colors are not quite right.

    There are guides online on how to fix this by jumping some wires on the step down chip but they all have a different board than mine .

    Any idea what can be done to fix this?

    i think i had this board before,flip the board over to the bottom and clean off the gunk, look for a test point labeled 5V, solder your power connection to this point

    the nomad runs off 5V and the screen your using is 12V but steps down to 5V to power the actual display. you need to feed the 5V into where the 5V is to power the screen. the screen flickers because its not getting enough power. your other option is to google each chip until you find the voltage regulator and get the pinout and feed 5V where the chip outputs 5V
