Commodore 128 80 column cable to 1902?

Post by Tim » Fri, 16 Jan 2004 11:57:14


Hi,

I have a Commodore 128 and Commodore 1902 monitor. Where can I get a 80
column cable for this monitor? I think it has a DB9 connector on the back
of the monitor.

Hi Tim,

I have a 1901 and I use a normal "PC" seral cable with a DB9 in each
end. It works fine for me. I suspect that it will work for your 1902
as well...

The 1901 monitor may use a cable unlike the one you need. However,
when I had one, the RGB cable plugged into the 1902 round 8 pin port.
You may want to try the following sources of Commodore paraphernalia:

I have never heard any complaints concerning Centsible SW but neither
have I dealt with them. I purchased stuff from the Cinncinati Club.
I found their product description vague. Once they clarified the
items' specifics, the club's merchandise and service was excellent.

You may want to search for a site operated by Ray Carlsen
(Carlson?). It may contain instructions for cable fabrication.

I tried a serial cable that is 6 ft long and I got a black screen. Tried
the Neg and Pos switch on the back to no avail. Do I need a shorter cable?

Does your cable have round 6 pin DIN plugs on both ends? When I
had it, the 1902 monitor had a round 6 pin DIN port for separate
LUMA / CHROMA / AUDIO input. The cable for this port plugged into
the round 8 pin DIN port on a C64 / 128. This port provides the 40
column computer screen. The only other video that could possibly be
used by the monitor's 6 pin port would be from pin 7 of the C128 RGB
DB9 port. This would provide a monchrome 80 column computer screen.

Tried
cable?

NO I have the Commodore 1902 NON A monitor, which is like the Commodore 2002
and Amiga 1080. It has a DB9 at the back, no 8 DIN. The 1084S/D has that.
