    Help find me an AV cable for my in-car DVD player please

    I have a quite elderly twin in-car DVD player and it enjoyed it's first outing of the year this weekend to keep the kids happy on a long journey. The problem is that the interconnecting AV cable has broke meaning that only one screen now works. I've been trying for a bit but am failing to track down a new one and I'm pretty sure they exist to buy as a separate item as well.

    The cable is as follows:

    2 x Male 3.5mm jack
    3 core cable carrying video + left/right channel audio
    About 50cm long

    If anyone could find one for me it would be much appreciated

    As in 2x 3.5 on each end, or each end has 1x 3.5? And how many poles are on the 3.5 if it's a single one? 2 (mono) 3 (stereo) 4 (like iphones etc)

    What is the make and model of your DVD player might make it easier to find the part. Any pictures of the damaged cable? Sure one of the lads from the club will have a spare if you can show me a picture or something.

    That's the chap. 4 Poles. Mine is a straight connector though, but I don't see that being an issue.
    Oh,and it's an Aldi Tevion branded set for those who wanted to know.

    Aye, only reason it shouldn't work is if the sockets are in a slightly weird place where they need to be straight, else all should be good ..

    But, as I care .. PSG03513 - PRO SIGNAL - 3.5MM 4P JACK LEAD, 1M . | CPC

    That's the reason I live at the other end of the M65 .. if CPC was just down the road from my house my wife would kill me as I'd probably spend too much time there buying gadgets .. lol ..
