HELP PLEASE - trying to hook up old VGA monitor - need pin info

Post by Mack Goodm » Sun, 29 Mar 1992 04:16:19

I need some video hacker help.   I have a sort of non-standard "VGA"
monitor that was produced by TEK ( PCD13) a few years ago. The object for me
is to see if it can be used with a standard VGA card.

I called TEK and have the pins on the "9-pin" connector as follows:
1 red
2 green
3 blue
4 composite sync
5 Gain ( high , low)  " I'm not sure what this is  "
6,7,8,9 ground

Now I bought a 9pin to 15pin converter and that's not a problem

the pins on the card I'm trying is as follows:
1 red, 2 green, 3 blue
4 monitor type sense
5 ground
6,7,8, color grounds
9 no connection
10 sync ground
11 monitor type sense
12 monitor type sense
13 horizontal sync
14 vertical sync
15 no connection

The 9 to 15 adapter maps things as you would expect 1-1,2-2,3-3,but
4-13, 5-14, 6-6,7-7,8-8,9 to 10 and 11.

So when I just hook it up in this config. the monitor functions, but
with a constant vertical roll.

I can see the words and stuff but with a 3+ roll going on.

Does anyone out there have a suggestion to try??  It seems it's only
slightly off.

The monitor has composite sync   and the card puts out vertical and
horizontal sync.  Is there a way to match this up.   Thanks so
much for just reading all this......



1. VCR hook-up to VGA monitor

I'm posting this for a friend.  You guys are pretty tough out there - please
don't holler if this is posted to the wrong place.

He wants to know if a VCR tape can be projected on a VGA monitor, using
a Paradise graphics card.  Is this possible?  If so, what hardware/software
is needed?

Please send any responses to me via e-mail, and I'll pass them along.
