I could use some help correcting a problem.  We have a store display Super Nintendo model M80C p/n 22801 with Zenith monitor C15MNTC1 1991 vintage.  In moving, we accidentally pulled the 5 wires out of the DB9 connector on monitor.  They go on pins 1,3,4,5,8.  My wire colors are: Black,  White, Red, Green, and a bare wire.  These wire colors are different than what I have seen in other posted messages. 

Any advice would surely be appreciated.

Best Regards,,


 Hi FredJ !

I could not find info on your monitor, but found a service manual for other Zenith monitor. Here are the pinouts, assuming that they all share the same DB9 connector with identical pinouts:

QuotePin   Signal
==   =====
1   Ground
2   Reserved
3   Red
4   Green
5   Blue
6   Intensity
7   Reserved
8   H sync
9   V sync

ZENITH-ZVM-1380 Service Manual

QuoteThey go on pins 1,3,4,5,8.

That would be Ground, Red, Green, Blue and H sync.

NTSC Super Nintendo to SCART cable

You could try connecting them together the following way:

1          3          Red
2          4          Green
4          5          Blue
5,6       1          Ground
9          8          Sync

Best of luck and keep us posted.

Thank you for the reply Eidis.   I'm thinking the wire that looks black to me cold actually be dark blue.  So, my bare ground wire on pin 1; red, green, blue, n pins 3,4,5.  Then both vert and horizontal sync must come in on the white wire to pin 8.  I will try this week end and keep you posted. 

Thanks again for the help.


Ok, so I finally got back to this project.  Connected the DB9 as described (with black wire being blue) and all is working good.  Many thanks for the help!
