    I have a tablet ( broken screen) and a 22" monitor laying around doing nothing. Can these two get married?
    My thinking is to take the ribbon of the tablet that connects to the screen (see attachment) and modify it to get an rgb signal to drive the monitor.
    Any help/direction would be appreciated.

    I guess it could but resolution would be limited accordingly to the phones specs.

    1280 x 800 would be enough for what I need. MP3 workstation, little YouTube.
    Where could I find the wiring of the ribbon?

    You would have to find the name of driver IC to get the wiring.

    Yes I'm also not lucky. Is there any standards followed? The screen is a standard 8" tablet screen so from that side of the ribbon it should be a standard wiring. Or maybe I'm mistaken

    Read the name of the chip that is on the flex cable.
