My Connecting cord was cut and thrown away...NEED HELP!!
I bought the Legacy L7M awhile back and loved it. I moved and got a new car and left my old car at my parents house, with the L7M in it. While I was gone, they cut the cord and removed the screen and threw away the connecting cord, as well as the connectors for Audio and Video and power and ground. All I have left is the screen and remote, and three wires sticking out of the bottom of the screen. One is yellow, one is orange and there is also a larger guage wire which is red. I really want to reinstall my screen, but I dont know what is what or how i can connect power, ground, remote, audio and video. I do remember the connecting cord was very similar to an S-Video type connection, but thats all I remember about it. Please help. I have asked many people about what the cords could be, and the general consensus is that the larger red wire is for power and the other two are audio and video, but where is the ground and remote?

Does the monitor have a dvd player built in to it? Are you trying to play video's? Or is it just a monitor and your trying to get a tv signal? I believe that the two yellow cords you are talking about either go to the antenna unit to get a signal or connect to a dvd player or another media source to play on the screen. What do you have connected to it? Please go to your original question and click on reply or comment to answer my questions and I will try and help you with this.
This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc.
Go to the source of your cable signal connector .
Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires.
