[?] semi-urgent switch question, !should be rather easy!
« on: March 20, 2004, 03:27:21 PM »

Ok now my dilemma, i have my tv out from my comp going to my old commodore moniter and then my playstation going to it also. whenever i switch between the two (quite often) i had to go around and switch the plugs for the video. so i have a switch that i ripped out of my old power supply (the one that switches between 115v and 225v). i want to make it so i can switch between the two. the switch has 6 pins but my attempty didnt work so im still a newbie at electronics (i need directions but at least i can solder good). this is my attempt at the switch.

NOTE: my computer out is always on
NOTE: the boxes are plugs and the dark/light lines represent the 2 different wires of the plug (+ & - i would have to guess)



the result of my attempt is either way the switch is its always comp displayed, when i try the playstation it makes kind of a double image, theyre both on at the same time but like faded over eachother and its all wavy. any help would be greatly appreciated. i just realized that some people might read this to see wtf "semi-urgent" means. for those its just kind of like "sh*t wtf i dont have any idea how to do this".

Thank You

I don't know if the switch works like this, but I think that you have to wire it this way.

Good job skylined, thats a typical pin out for a switch like that. Its a DPDT switch kerlstillax. Wouldnt a switch like that be noisy however for a video application? I would invest into something like this if you cannot afford it now.

It might not be bounceless, but it would certainly do for component video.

I'd have to agree with Greggyboy.  There are some decent and cheap component splitters (and RF modulators) that can be used.

BTW: C= are NOT craptastic!!! Some of them are the best composite monitors ever made. I wish I still had mine. :(
