BBC RGB to SCART Socket wiring


By Chris Richardson

A picture is worth 1000 words

Now for a few words of explanation:

The black curved lines on the drawing of the SCART plug (there are 3 of them) indicate wires joining the pins, there is also one short line on the drawing indicating a join between the top row of pins and the lower row of pins on the SCART plug.

Join points 1 to 1, 2 to 2, 3 to 3, 4 to 4, 5 to 5 and 6 to 6.

There are 3 resistors of 330W each (Orange, Orange, Brown,Gold). These are soldered between the pin of the SCART plug and wire that goes to the DIN plug at points 2, 3 and 4.

Remember that the views are looking into the backs of the plugs, as if you have them in bits and are looking atthe wires.

The lead that I used to copy this from had the earth soldered to the case of the DIN plug, but was not fastened to the SCART plug at all.

Variation on the above scart lead.
This is for a Sony KVM1420U
