It is quite easy to straighten these pins, however the pins are quite brittle, and do not suffer bending too many times (they just snap) Does this cable unscrew at the monitor end? if you have straightened the pin on the cable but are worried that it may be a little weak on that end, swap the ends of the cable round and use the other end to plug into your computer (as it will be stronger) Also if the cable unplugs at the monitor end it can be replaced with a cable of the same type, available from most computer stockists, just take the broken cable with you for comparison Gareth

Ecs-mcp61pm-am motherboard wiring diagram


http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006157R/4006157Rmv.shtml

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006203R/4006203Rtc.shtml

Open in two different windows.

The Top link is for a clear photo of the motherboard, and the letter designations.
The Bottom link is a navigation guide for those letter designations, HOWEVER they do NOT match up. I will guide you using both links.

1) Go to the Top link - Main View
Look at the right side for letter R.
This points to the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, on the motherboard.

In the second link - Hardware Details - it is letter
J- Main Power Connector

This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

(NOTE* Color never matters)

Note that there is a Lock on the side (Middle), of this main power cable's connector.
There is also a matching Tab on the motherboard connector.

To remove this power cable the top of the Lock is squeezed in. This action brings the Lock's hooked end away from the Tab, on the motherboard connector.
The Lock operates like a see-saw on a playground.

2) Go towards the Top/Middle to the letter C, in the Main View.
This points to the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable's connector, on the motherboard.
In the Hardware Details it is the letter C also.
C - Auxillary 12V ATX Connector

This is a general example of a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Note that it has a Lock, and the motherboard connector has a Tab, also.

That's it for power cables TO the motherboard.

3) Since there is only one IDE (PATA) connector on the motherboard, I'm going to assume you are using a SATA harddrive.
Uses a SATA power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Note that a SATA power cable's connector has 15 contact pins.
Between it, and a SATA data cable's connector, the SATA power cable's connector is longer.
Note also the L shape inside the connector.
There is also a Lock tab you depress on the cable's connector, when unplugging it.

4) General example of a SATA data cable, and it's respective connector on a motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

You can see the L shape a little better here. A SATA data cable has 7 contact pins.
The connector shape usually used on the Harddrive, is a 90 degree bent elbow.
The straight connector end is plugged into the motherboard's SATA connector.

In the Main View the letter U is the SATA connector designator.
Look to the left of the Front Panel connector, designated by the letter T.
Those four Orange connectors are SATA connectors.

The Harddrive usually plugs into SATA 1. In Hardware Details this is shown by the letter L.
L- SATA Connectors

Looking closely you can see the SATA 1 connector, is at the Bottom of the motherboard.
However the beauty of SATA is, that you can plug the harddrive into any of those SATA connectors, and BIOS will find it.

In the Main View the letter S on the right side, points to where a computer case fan plugs in.
(Chassis Fan)

The letter F in the middle, points to where the Processor (CPU) fan connects.

J is for the Front Audio Connector. (Audio ports on Front Panel of computer)
K is where a Card Reader would plug in.
This is the kind of power cable a Floppy Drive, and a Card Reader uses,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

L points to where the Firewire ports connect to.
1394a.
(IEEE 1394 Connector)

The letter O points to where the Front Panel USB ports connect to.

Going back to the letter T - Front panel Connector, in the Main View.
Go to Hardware Details, and click on -
M - Front Panel connector

4 pins on the Left side, 5 pins on the Right side.
The pins on the Left side are numbered EVEN.
The pins on the Right side are numbered ODD.

Starting at the BOTTOM on the Left side, going towards the Top;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. No Pin 10.

Starting at the Bottom on the Right side, going towards the Top;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C.
Not Connected. 5 Volt test for the factory

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

How to troubleshoot a system that boots up but wont display



  • VGA cable replacement
  • Needle-nose pliers
  1. Power downthe computer. Check the VGA cable running from the computer to the monitor. If the cable is not snugly seated in both ports, the video signal will not reach the monitor.
  2. Check the connector on each end of the VGA cable. Examine the nine pins on each connector. If any of the pins are bent or broken, the video signal will not reach the monitor. If there are just a few bent pins, you maybe able to straighten them with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Be careful not to break off any of the pins. If any of the pins are broke nor missing, you will need to replace the VGA cable with a new one.
  3. Disconnect all cables and peripherals from the computer. Open the computer case by removing the Phillips screws along the side or back of the case. Remove the cover or side panel to expose the internal components. Locate the VGA card and make sure it is fully inserted into the PCI card slot. If the card is not installed correctly, the video signal will not reach the monitor.
  4. Close the case, reconnect the power cord and all cables, and power up the computer. The video signal should display on your monitor.

L have not yellow colour and blue in my screen,,,


assuming you have a VGA monitor, disconnect the video cable and inspect the pins. Check to make sure that the pins are not bent/crushed or missing (there should be 15 pins in 3 rows). You may need to look at both sides of the cable. If they are crushed/bent, replace the cable if possible. If not possible (because your cable is hard wired to the monitor), try VERY GENTLY to straighten the pins

HP 1940 turns off after a second or two desktop appears with a message no signal detecked


no signal detected is displayed when there is no sync pulse detected by monitor. look in the monitor cable connector and see if you have a pin bent down. same at video connector at pc. if no bent or missing pin it probably bad in monitor itself. do u have another monitor you can hook up to pc? that could tell you which end is defective.(pc or monitor)

My l g monitor screen suddenly turned into pinkish colour..i dont know whats the problem..i did degaus also but no use..


Dear Sir
Welcome to Fixya Customer Support
We will Help You
Generally this problem arises due to faulty monitor Signal cable or by broken fins of VGA cable.check your monitor connectors for bent or broken pins. usually happens after swapping cables or monitors on a computer.you could also have a bad cable or monitor.

Is the monitor a CRT or a flat panel.... loss of one color is very common on CRT monitors, and could be a bad solder connection on the CRT driver board, or a bad video chip..... flat panel LCD monitors don't usually lose a color, although it is possible.... the most common failures on LCD flat panels is total power supply failure (no power at all) or display matrix driver failure (colored stripes across or down the screen), but a cable failure is also possible, like i said above, check the connectors for bent or broken pins..... there are 3 rows of pins...... at the widest side of the connector, there should be at least 3 pins next to each other on that row (sometimes there are 5), the middle row should at least have 3 consecutive pins as well (and again, there are sometimes 5)
the last row (the smaller side of the connector) should have at least two (but sometimes all 5) pins in it. the first row and last row of pins should line up vertically, and the middle row is offset a half a space, so from top to bottom, the columns of pins make a zigzag...... if the connectors are alright, then your most likely problem is the monitor..... if another monitor works on the computer, it's the monitor..... if another monitor has the same problem on this computer, then it is the video card (or the motherboard's video output, which is fixable by installing a video card)

You must have a PDF reader installed or you can use this snapshot form its Page 19 - PC Desktop Back
moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpgc69d190.jpg
The cable from your monitor must connect to the Monitor port (middle and right on picture). Be CAREFULL not to force the connection. The cable only fits one way and you can damage the pins if you force it. If it won't plug in easily, then rotate the plug 180 degrees and try again.

If your connection seems inadequate, you may have bent one of the pins. If you suspect a bent pin, look into the end of the connector on the cable to see if one or more of the gold colored pins are bent. You can straighten the pins yourself with a needle-nosed pliers or a small blade screw driver use gently, otherwise try to get a replacement monitor cable.

Need video jack


I interfaced the SAVV LM-S6001 today. Here's what I found;

Looking straight on at the male 8 pin DIN connector here's how I'll describe it. There are 3 pins across the top row. From left to right I'll call them 8, 7, 6. There are 2 pins on the left side of the middle row, 5 leftmost and 4 adjacent to the center. Moving right, there is a gap and then pin 3 on the rightmost side of the middle row. There are two pins on the bottom row, pin 2 on left and pin 1 on right. Draw that on some paper.

8 7 6
o o o
5 o o o 3
o o
2 1

Pin 1 is +12VDC
Pin 2 is center contact of both audio and video RCA jacks
Pin 3 is -12VDC
Pin 4 is outer RCA contact for Video
Pin 5 -n/c
Pin 6 -n/c
Pin 7 -n/c
Pin 8 is outer RCA contact for Audio

Now, I don't know what pin 7 does, but it is wired next to pin 4 suggesting a video application, Svideo is my best guess. I can only test for a composite video connection that I am using.

It's alive!

The Right Half of My Screen Is Grayed Out


It seems unlikely that two pins would be missing. They would more likely be bent down. If there's no bent pins, it looks like it could be a faulty monitor. Certainly, when TFT displays go, they tend to manifest the fault in a colourless or multicoloured bar consistently across a portion of the screen.
