VGA Cable Wire Colors

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).

    I am almost postive you can because I have a VGA Cable working with a RGB signal now I just wanted to get some use out of this useless (to me) monitor. And I have seen it done on other monitors. Given they were LCD but isn't the signal the same?

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.

Creative 9 pin male din damaged


The only way to go is Replace the 9 pin adapter. Radio Shack may have the adapter, check them out. You will need to be observant when locating the proper colored wire corresponding with each pin. Two ways to do this and all require a soldering iron. Either split or open the cover on the 9 pin male adapter and expose the wires going to each pin. Identify the colors and pin numbers and draw a diagram on paper to keep for reattaching the wires later on. Cut 1/4 of the insulation back from the end of each wire and tin the wires. In short, hold the solder to the wire ends and heat with the iron so a flow of solder runs along the bare wire. Make certain to put a connector cover onto the wires prior to soldering each wire in place on the pin end. Simply set the correct colored wire end in the proper pin number, hold the iron to the pin back end and allow the wire to affix itself. Do this with all wires. If you do not have 9 wires, that is not unusual, just do the procedure with what wires are available. If you cannot get the outer jacket off of the current 9 pin connecter, then you will need a Volt/Amp meter. Here you simply cut the wire approximately 1/2 to 2/4 Inch back from the cable 9 pin adapter, and locate the pin that corresponds to the colored wire. Using the RESISTANCE part of a meter, when you touch the two probes together the needle moves on the scale. Touch one end to a pin and try each colored wire end until you see the movement on the scale. Now you know what color corresponds with each pin. Solder each colored wire as mentioned above.

I would like to know what adapter (DVI to VGA Cable Adapter) I need to connect to a Macintosh G4. Thanks


Without knowing what Model Number of MAC G4 you're referring to, I can only give you generic information.

If your MAC G4 has a DVI port it is generally the female style.
The DVI connector on the adapter will need to be a male DVI style.

The VGA end of the adapter will be either male, or female. Most VGA connectors on a monitor cable have a male VGA end.

(The DVI end will have the pins sticking out on the adapter. The VGA end will have the socket holes)

Also stated as the monitor cable end will be a DVI male. The port {Connection} on the computer is a VGA female)

Example of a DVI male to VGA female adapter,

http://sewelldirect.com/dviaftovgam.asp

Barring that you need the other style of DVI to VGA adapter, (DVI female on the monitor cable, VGA male on the computer), this is an example,

[ Note* The newer VGA connectors are also known as an HD-15 connector.
More information on the Video Graphics Array connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

More information on the DVI connector styles, and the Digital Visual Interface technology,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

If you should find all of this confusing, simply state in a Comment as to what connector is on the end of the monitor cable, and what connector is at the computer.

State whether the connectors are Male (Pins sticking out), or Female (Socket holes)

How do I rewire my 6pin s-video cord to my GPX tvs200 ( there is green/red/black/yellow/white and blue


I think I know what you want. Now, if GPX tvs200 doesn't have S-Video plug hook up for the S-video cables. Then your out of luck. What type of input does the GPX tvs200 have?

There possibly you could is USB port if it has one. Now about the wire colors in S-Video cable. These color wire are used for reference for one of the cable plug (6 pin) to the other end plug which also has S-Video plug (6 pin) Just like Pin one on S-Video plug will go to pin one (1) on the other end of the S-Video cable the color the wire could be any color as long as the wire corresponds to pin 1 of input and to pin 1 of the output of S-video cable match. stewbison

Hello, The VGA cable broke. it was cut off and now it's lost. I can put back a VGA connector however I need a wiring diagram so I can know what color goes to which pin. Can you help? Thanks.


Not knowing which monitor that you have I will have to be a bit general. If the cable disconnects from the back of the monitor then you can simply replace the cable with another vga cable. If the cable does not disconnect then my best advice is to look at the other end of the cable and get the pin out from the controller board on that end. Unfortunately that procedure would require opening up the monitors case.

http://pinouts.ru/Video/VGA15_pinout.shtml

The above link will also help as a reference. However keep in mind that some of the colors may not match. Which is why you would need to check the other end of the cable to be sure. Good luck.

The vga cable is chopped and the PC end is missing


Is this a standard VGA cable with a plug ato both ends? If yes, they are available where computer equipment is sold. If it is hard wired, you need to take your monitor in for repair.

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.
