Old monitor plug conversion
« on: August 15, 2003, 04:36:30 PM »

Ppl, remember those old monitors with the green blinking scoll thing?

I came across a new one and it is now in my hands but the connector is the sort of dual row of pins and not the normal vga plug.

Can anybody please guide me to a decent site or has knowledge how to rip the old connector into a vga one?

I know it would be better to get a new monitor by my ex physics teacher told me that I could easily convert one into a functional cro but she only knows how to do it with the normal vga connector.

thanks again

no, not the scart one, it looks like a sub D 9 pin plug, just slightly wider

I belive your talking about a cga connector or a monochrome connector looks close to a vga or svga except it only has 2 rows of pins.

Exactly like mad scientist said, cause the monitor used to belong to an old 286 IBM compatible PC, the pc had a generic name so I cannot exactly tell you while the monitor had its sticker removed and replaced by the same brand of the pc - "GEM 286"

Um... here's the pin outs for 15 pin VGAs and 9 pin monitors.

http://www.monitorworld.com/faq_pages/q17_page.html

The only other thing is a 15 pin low density vga, which follows the vga pin out, but has the pins in two rows instead of three. You just need to bridge the pins. I'd invest in a VGA D sub and a compatible D sub and just connect the dots.
