    SVGA wiring help

    I've looked everywhere on the net for these diagrams which i can find but they do not correspond to the colours coming out of the cable.

    Could someone tell me which of these wires go into what pins.

    I will post a pic in the next post as i cannot post a pic with my first post. Try saying that after a few ha..

    Thanks

    There is no 1 standard for what colours may be used in a vga cable.

    The red, blue & green mini coax will be obvious but the rest won't

    You will have to get a pinout diagram and list of the pins then use a continuity checker on your particular cable.

    I've had 2 cables from the same supplier before using the same colour of wires but they wen't to different pins.

    How will i be able to tell what colour are the various pins eg Horizontal Sync/Vertical Sync etc...

    There is nothing on the pcb in the monitor to indicate what the various pins are?

    The pins are labelled at least the first and last on a row are, using that and a diagram with listing of the pins and a multimeter you can do a continuity check to work it out.

    Allthough it depends on what exactly you are trying to wire this cable up to?

    I can't see any labeling on any of the pins? I know the R, G, B thick wires go into pin 1, 2, 3 and the earths on those wires go into 6, 7, 8 but the other 6 thin wires i don't know?

    Basically the connection in the cable end which plugs into the graphics card was broken so i cut the connector off an bought another but when i wired it to a new plug i didn't get any signal. i tried to see what the existing wiring was on the old connector but all the wires was pulled out.
