lincoln is an unknown quantity at this point

Snes setup

Hi to all of you. I am new to this forum and already have a question for you all. My wife received an old SNES game console complete with games. We know that it works through the TV on AV2 and indeed it works on our sons tv. However it is not possible to connect it to our flat screen tv as it is wall mounted and there is not the room for the scart lead and the red/yellow/white plugs.

So we came up with the idea of using our spare flat screen computer monitor. A VGA lead was bought to fit the three coloured plugs into. However when everything is connected the monitor states VGA No Signal and then advises Check Video Cable.

We have carried out the same exercise on our large computer monitor with the same results, so the monitor is ok.

If any switched on people out there know what I'm doing wrong?

Or indeed will the SNES work as we are trying to do?

All help gratefully received.

Well first of all, welcome here to NFF, lincoln.

As for your issue? First of all, most flat screen tv's should have a side composite input. Does yours? Usually most do so check for that on either side.

Only other thing I can suggest is when it's connected through the VGA to make sure you've turned on the SNES as well.

Hope you can figure something out, and let us know how it turns out.
