Having problems with your Sylvania SF150 15" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

How do I find and replace the vga cable? (It is hardwired to the back of the monitor.)

\015 I need a new vga cable for my Sylvania SF150 monitor. The problem is the cable is hardwired to the monitor. I can not simply "unplug" the cable from the back of the monior. I can take the monitor apart but I still need to know what type of cable I need and where to buy a replacement cable.\015

Answers :

I got hold of an old vga cable (15 pin), cut off the male end. I then cut the existing cable comming out of the monitor. After soldering the wires together and lots of electrical tape wala - it works.

\015\012Now the problems I incured - Don't solder wires together based on color, they probably will not match. Peel back the ends of the cut off connectors and find each pin with a Multimeter. Once you find each wires match solder them carefully and tape. When done test and if good place a short splint on the spliced area and tape. This will keep the wires from breaking from movement. Good luck.
