Reverse Engineering a 8 INCH LCD

This will be my ultimate goal! I have these 8″ LCDs from a picture frame. My goal here is to Make this work! They come from broken (un functional new) Digital Picture frames.. The first day here and i can see the whole device seems to on constantly and uses a button to control its sleep state or something. The backlight seems to send out 5v which isnt enough.. .(perhaps because it stays in sleep mode?)

I know for a fact there are plenty of white LEDs inside and are arranged in sets of 3…. 3 leds is 1 set… so 7V to 9V will power these backlights…

I dont have time right now but will surely try to hack the heck out of these … and if i can get it working you can bet i will sell them DIRT CHEAP on my shop… How does $10 sound for a 8″ Color LCD ?(bare) $40-$60 with a controller… still cheaper that many out there.
