choosing the right DNA screen replacement
Choosing the correct replacement DNA screen can be a bit of a faff. Nowhere near as tricky as patting your head whilst rubbing your tummy, but there’s definitely a few things you need to be aware of.
Whilst the newer Evolv boards ( don’t call them DNA chips, you’ll be barred) share the same screens, some of the older DNA boards can have some confusing options. There’s DNA 60 small screen and large screen choices. Then there’s DNA 40 large screens and small screens. There’s DNA 30’s, DNA 75’s, 200’s and more. Working out which screen is compatible with which board can be a nightmare if you’re noob or simply not paying that much attention.
Trust me. I’ve bought the wrong screen twice.
DNA Replacement Screens: A Visual
Here you can see the types of DNA replacement screens available. Not many, but enough to befuddle the mind of the modder. Let’s look at each one one in turn, find out what they are and which screen is the right one for your mod.
- DNA 20 / 25 / 30 / 40 Small Screen*
- DNA 60 Small Screen **
- DNA 40 large / 60 large*** / 75 / 200 / 250
- DNA 75C /250C
* Flex cable soldered to board
**Must have small screen DNA60 firmware
***Must have large screen DNA60 firmware
So here’s a little table which might make things a bit clearer.
