The only immediate issue was that I forgot to connect VCOM pin 46, so I had to put a jumper on. Pin6 VCOM was okay. Based on previous issues I believe each one supports alternating lines.
As expected there are some issues with the colour, it seems that it may be specific to red but requires some more investigation. I consider the test successful though in that I did not see any “noise”, the picture was perfectly stable with no flicker.
The physical fitment was also good, however I wrecked my last 30pin connector so I had to use one salvaged from the old CSTN which is why I have the screen positioned strangley.
