I'm not exactly sure how you expect to use a Cat 5 cable for VGA video (Takes 12 wires last time I looked) but here is how the cable connectors are wired


SVGA (35-37 KHz - 800x600) 15 pin sub D:

6
1 Red (Analog) 6 Red Return 11 (ID0) GND (Color) 11. . . 1
2 Green (Analog) 7 Green Return 12 (ID1) NC (Color) . . .
3 Blue (Analog) 8 Blue Return 13 Horzontal Sync . . .
4 Not Used 9 Not used 14 Vertical Sync . . .
5 Ground 10 Ground 15 Not Used . . .
15 10 5

How to install external monitor to laptop if laptop does not support 15 pin plug from monitor


If your laptop does not have the 15 pin plug (VGA Port) then you will need to get some type of adapter that will make the monitor work. You probably have a DVI monitor.

You just need to make sure you get the correct type of adapter and make sure the ends that plug into the computer are correct such as male or female. For example think of the human male and female body parts when you look at adapters. The vga port on the computer is called a Female port, but the piece that plugs into it is called Male. It's the same with DVI ports.

I think you need a VGA Male to a DVI Female so below is a link to one and for $2.54 from Cable Wholesale.

Below is a picture of what it looks like.

The Envision H170L Monitor VGA cable.


the Envision H170L Monitor uses an interface 1.0x VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15). The same VGA cable wildly use in different computer brands..I was wondering why you have not found a replace for that cable. It can be purchase from any computer store.

If you are planning on cutting the wires and solder it together that would be easy if you have the diagrams of the pin numbering for male VGA connector and the female VGA connector. Check first this diagrams and follow strictly the coding of the wire so that it would be successful when connecting it together.

It is also better if after you solder the wire, you will use an shrinkable tube on the connection. Cover the whole sections of interconnected wires with shrinkable tube before you use the vga cable.

NEED TO PUT A NEW END ON THE CABLE THAT ATTATCHES TO MY DESKTOP


Don't attempt this unless you're comfortable with soldering. Be very careful, because hooking the pins up wrong could damage your monitor, your computer or both. You'll need a male VGA connector and a shell for it. Cut off the old connector and strip away the outer insulation on the cable so you can see what color cables go to which pins, then just make the same connections to the new VGA plug. Double-check everything--you may only get one shot at this.

What kind of connector do I use to connect a dell laptop to a Hitachi 42'' plasma display? HDMI to DVI or HDMI to VGA?


If the TV has a VGA connector then use a VGA to VGA cable from your laptop as most laptops have a VGA output. Otherwise use one of the other combinations that work HDMI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI..

How do I find and replace the vga cable? (It is hardwired to the back of the monitor.)


I got hold of an old vga cable (15 pin), cut off the male end. I then cut the existing cable comming out of the monitor. After soldering the wires together and lots of electrical tape wala - it works.

Now the problems I incured - Don't solder wires together based on color, they probably will not match. Peel back the ends of the cut off connectors and find each pin with a Multimeter. Once you find each wires match solder them carefully and tape. When done test and if good place a short splint on the spliced area and tape. This will keep the wires from breaking from movement. Good luck.

I want to connect my monitor which has a vga connection via a cat5e cable to my security camera which has a bnc connection on it


Hi,

With the indulgence of IB4G2008...

Not possible without a converter adapter at the same time signal losses, interference and noisy video if CAT5E cable used.

What I would suggest is to use coaxial cable (RG59) instead of the CAT5E. One end would be terminated with ta BNC male to connect to the camera. The other end would have to be terminated either with an RCA male. Before connecting to the VGA (15pin) input of the monitor, it would have to be processed by a converter/adapter. Here are some examples:
1. Composite Video to VGA adapter;
2. some high end adapters are shown here;
3. several shown here would also work.

In case you would like a DIY, this might interest you.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
