Does anyone know which wire colors correspond to which pins on the male VGA end for a Compaq FS 7600 Monitor? Trying to wire a RGB cable to it and I know which pins I need but the colors in the VGA cable are not the same as on a RGB cable (obviously).

Re: VGA Cable Wire Colors
I don't think and RGB cable will work with a VGA cable because the signal in the video card is completely different. It's not just the picture but the scaning and refresh rates are totally different. Even if you could wire one it probably won't produce a picture.

if you hold the cable and shack it , if the colors changes there is aproblem in your cable you can cut the socket and measure the socket pins with the cable colors (there is 9 colored wires ) then buy anew socket (or give it to an expert)
Red (foil wrapped with 1 bare ground wire) Green (foil wrapped with 1 bare ground wire) Blue (foil wrapped with 1 bare ground wire) Transparent (foil wrapped with 1 bare ground wire)All the above go to the corresponding Gun Color, the Bare wire goes the one GND pin. Purple Yellow Black Orange White Bare braided outer ground wire. Combine ALL earths to a single point. You will have to open up the unit, to see what colors are used for the 5 - DDC Return10 - GND-Sync/Self raster12 - DDC Data 13 - H-Sync 14 - V-Sync 15 - DDC Clock Settings they are marked on the motherboard.
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.
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.
You got a loose connection on your VGA 15pin Socket. everytime the color signal got loose there is a invert video.or missing color signal.Possible cause in which terminals in a bad contacts with wires. preparably the RGB color signal, replace only the 15 pin male socket... which is pin 1 for Red pin 2 for Green pin 3 for Blue..
others pins just trace the signal.. don't worry its color coded.
