monitor, same size screen, 17 in.
All the wires have matching colors/sizes on
both ends except these:
1- from the monitor there is one smaller size dark
2- from the plug there are two wires, a smaller one, color purple,
and a heavier wire, color gray.
Do I need these?
Will I burn my house down if
I don't hook these to something?
If all is OK, do I just use regular solder on
these? The job won't
be neat but, oh, well. I just want to see what is on my
Gramma thanks you all!
Re: Mashed CRT monitor cable- I have leftover wires.??
There are no standards for the video wiring, however,
you can go here and get the manual for your Dell monitor.
There will be a table of pin assignments for it. Then inspect your
mashed connector and get the wire color/pin assignments. Then solder
onto the new connector. Splicing the two cables together
is not recommended as it probably will deteriorate the video signals.
