Falcon to VGA converter

Postby PaulB » Wed Jun 11, 2008 6:37 am

As the topic title says I'm after a Falcon to VGA converter so I can use a monitor. Anyone in the UK got one spare they're willing to part with. If so, pm me with a price and we'll go from there.

Also after a Falcon to Atari sm124 monitor converter as I've read I may need a mono monitor connected to cure some nvram problems.

For the SM124 any adaptor for 13pin Atari plug is sufficient. It will work with both SM124, SCART leads and SC1224 monitors.
They pop up from time to time at Ebay Germany for a few EURs.

Thanks Simon. I did look on Ebay UK as there are usually some on there, but sadly, none today.

I'm a bit rusty on my soldering skills but I think I could build the cable. Only problem is where to obtain a female connector for the Falcon monitor port? Considering how cheap they are on Ebay I would prefer to just buy one but I will build one if I have to.

Ok cheers. I was thinking Maplin for it but I didn't know they would still be available. I'll give it a week and if no-one pm's me wanting to sell one or one doesn't turn up on Ebay then I'll go buy the bits and start soldering.

Well, get a DB25 one and use a small metal saw to cut off 6 superfluous pins. Does't look exactly professional but will work ok :D

You are probably right Chandler but I've only owned a falcon for 2 days now so even if i've read the threads before, it's never really sunken in as it didn't apply to me at the time.

Ah exactly the same as my uncopyrighted method to use a db25, cut the pins out to a db19 and use it for mounting Atari hard drives. Might be a possibility to do this.

Overpriced for Europeans if you add postage (and maybe toll) - you can get genuine Atari ones for 10€ at Ebay here.

I just searched on ebay.de for 'falcon vga', 'falcon 030' and 'atari monitor'. Unless it's because of my bad search terms, there seems to be none on there either.
