Abstract: An exemplary liquid crystal panel control circuit (20) includes a direct current converting circuit (23). The direct current converting circuit includes a comparator (231), a reset circuit (232), and a DC-to-DC converting circuit (233) connected in series. The liquid crystal panel control circuit can return to an initial status from a protection status by the reset circuit.
Abstract: An exemplary driving circuit for a liquid crystal display (3) includes a power supply circuit (34), a backlight control circuit (356) and a counter (355). The power supply circuit provides voltages for the LCD. The backlight control circuit controls whether or not the voltages provided by the power supply circuit are transferred to a backlight module of the LCD. The counter is configured for counting a number of pulses received from an external circuit, when the number of pulses received reaches a predetermined threshold number, the counter provides a trigger signal to turn on the backlight control circuit, so that the voltages provided by the power supply are transferred to the backlight module.
Abstract: An exemplary power supply circuit (212) for a liquid crystal display (LCD) (2) includes a power source integrated circuit (IC) (214). The power source IC includes a voltage input (213) configured for receiving an external power source Vcc; a positive voltage output (215) configured for providing a first voltage; a negative voltage output (216) configured for providing a second voltage; a detecting circuit (2141) configured for generating a control signal when the LCD is turned off; and a switching circuit (2142) configured for receiving the control signal and electrically connecting the negative voltage output to the positive voltage output in order to increase a potential of the negative voltage output quickly.
