I'm looking for a quality 12-volt powered, 20-22" LCD TV/DVD monitor, preferably with decent stereo sound, to mount on a salon bulkhead.
Google for a Haier HLC24XSL2 available at/via Amazon, among others. 24" with a built-in DVD, LED backlight, uses an external AC supply for its 12V input.

Long story, I ordered one early last summer but after numerous delays cancelled that and ordered what I thought was the replacement model, and HLC24XK2 - which is almost identical except for... an internal AC supply. I bought the service manual hoping to bypass the supply but while its logic card does run on 12V, the backlight supply is 17V. I am thinking of ordering the XSL2 and finding a place for the XK2 at home.

Nice TV in other respects, HDMI and VGA input (which repeats my Raymarine E120 nicely). The speakers are a bit small and buzzy on heavy bass, but it has audio line outputs for an external supply. Geeky feature of dubious usefulness - you can show photos from a USB memory stick, and even record/pause live digital TV to the USB memory, sort of a mini-DVR.

There are 19 and 22" models as well.

Bump.

I'm planning to upgrade our little flatscreen to something bigger this spring. Anything new on the 12v LEC TV front?

Any news on how the earlier poster in this thread did?

Regards,
Brad

I looked into it, and just went with a 110V 19" Emerson from Walmart, for $96. If I want to use it on the hook I'll just get an inverter. I'll need one anyway, for the Blu-ray player.

20" "Insignia" LCD TV with built in DVD player from Future Shop. Came with a 120V to 12V transformer. I cut off the transformer, wired it directly to DC and it works perfectly. Did exactly the same thing with two previous TV's and never had a voltage problem.

After the not-quite-12v model I bought was stolen last winter, I finally found a manufacturer-refurb Haier HLC24XSL2 via Amazon. 24" with a built-in DVD, LED backlight, uses an external AC supply and is happy running directly on ship's 12V. I also have a Carnetix 12v-12v power supply for good measure, but not yet installed.
