Convert Plasma display to LCD or similar

Hello, I am searching the internet for some help or advice on how to convert signals going into a plasma display into something that would drive an LCD panel. We have some industrial machinery (OLD) that uses a plasma panel which is now obsolete, and I am hoping to source an alternative. I was wondering if there is such a device that could take the plasma data lines and convert into relevant LCD data. According to the pinout (attached) the existing plasma has 3 data lines and H-sync V-sync. I'm wondering if these can be simply connected to some other method of display or if some kind of conversion board is available. I'm OK with a soldering iron but do not have the necessary electronic knowledge - so am looking for advice - thank you. Steve

I can't find any information on that exact plasma panel - but there are loads of LCD replacements for a very similar looking MD400F640PD1A ??

It may be worth checking with (technical) suppliers of those if they may be compatible?
eg.

They are also on ebay and amazon.

If you don't have any luck there, try Tsubis in Germany - they specialise in replacements for older machine tool displays.
They don't list Ishida, but may have the information needed to adapt something.

I think its possible with a PSOC 5LP type of solution, but a consultant would be needed
to do the design. Here is a basic example of generating necessary signals with 1 chip.


PSOC consultants -
