All you would have to do is visit a computer store and show them the cable that is broken and you will have to buy a new one. Sadly thje pins in those are not made to be replaced. Hope this helps your problem.

Is the pig tail assembly on rear of the isteam control replaceable. Mine has a broken pin from the male connector inside and we cannot get it out. Thanks


If the pin is hollow (as all I've seen) try a wire with a hook on the end, a very small screw or possibly a small screwdriver to be able to pull the pin out of the socket.

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.

I have a mistubishi vs-5051 that has not color but the menu is green whats wrong


When you see the a picture with missing color, but the television is capable of showing colors on screen you have a cabling problem from the device sending the picture to the TV.
If you are using component video, three separate connectors red, green, and blue, and they are all matched to correctly colored termal on each end, be sure all cables fit tight. If the cables are tightly connected to the terminal of matching color at each end you will need to replace the cable. Component Video Cable on Amazon.com(with a picture)
If you are using S-video, older connection type where the cable end is a ring with four tiny metal pins plus a plastic square, one of the bins is either bent or broken. If you are unable to adjust the pins to fix the cable replace it. S-Video Cable on Amazon.com(with a picture)

Satellite/Cable Coax "DTV/TV" in-port broke


Replacing connectors on televisions can be a pricy endeavor. If you can't afford to bring it into a service shop, you may have luck by switching to a different type of connector. If your Satellite or Cable receiver has an HDMI output, your best bet would be to buy an HDMI cable and hook that up instead - the quality would actually be better than coax. Failing that, depending on what kinds of outputs your sat/cable receiver has, you could also go with (in order of preference) component video (a cable with five ends, red/green/blue, plus two for audio), s-video (a round metal connector with four pins in the middle), or composite video (similar to a component video cable, but only three ends - red, white, and yellow).
Any of the above cables (including the HDMI) can usually be found at your local big box electronics retailer for under $30.

How to debug a stiletto 1


Stiletto 2 ...pin bent...now broke off !

The pin on the Stiletto 2 connector was indented a little last week. This week it broke off and the radio will not work. I am thinking the dock connector would have to be replaced.

Anyone know who can repair this?
Is this a common problem for the Stiletto 2 ?
Thank you !

What is wrong with my tlp s10 it gives the entire picture a blue tint the lamp has done 2700 do I need a new bulb


Check the Video cable that feeds the projector, could be a broken cable or a pin bent -worst case the connector on the projector has broken.
Try the VGA cable on your computer screen.
The lamp does not need replaceing, the lamp emmits white light only.

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

Projector projects red screen.


My take on this...if that pin was *shorted* to another pin in the connector and not just bent, you could be looking at a damaged video input section. The pins in the video connector consist of the 3 color signals(red--green--blue), their individual grounds, and syncing. If this has indeed happened, which is *VERY* easy to do, the projector must be repaired by a service facility.

Bluish screen -


is it a greenish blue?..... if so you have lost your red signal..... 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)
