I'm trying to find someone who can tell me
how to wire a new plug on this monitor.
( a pin broke )
Any help or advice would really be appreciated.
Thanks.

I cannot find a pinout on that monitor. If the monitor is worth saving (you donít charge for your time), and you know how to solder, one procedure, if feasible, would be to use a cord from a monitor that isnít worth saving (you could use a VGA extender cable) and wire it from inside the PB monitor instead of at the plug end. I would use a multimeter to determine which wire goes to which pin. Are you sure you broke a pin? Typically, not all pins are present. If monitor is one of those monitors with speakers on the side, be extremely careful removing the speakers. The brass(?) fittings which the screws screw into can break loose from the case very easily. You will need a Philips head screwdriver with a longer than usual shank. Most hardware stores have them.

Warning! Monitors have very high voltages inside the case and are extremely dangerous. Do not take a monitor apart unless you are qualified to do so. Dangerous (life threatening) shocks are possible even if the power cord is disconnected. The cathode ray tube is also dangerous and can implode causing injury or death. If you do take a monitor apart or handle a monitor, you do so at your own risk. You have a good excuse for getting a 17Ē or 19Ē monitor, and will probably end-up getting one anyway. Larry
