RE: Pin broke off VGA cable....help?
Is it a pin that is actually used for a signal? Pins 4 and 11 are normally not connected to anything and pins 5-8 are gound. So if one of those is missing, it's no biggy.
. If the pin was actually a signal pin, you will have to replace the connector or cable assembly. Replacing a VGA connector (15-pin high density) is not an easy task whether you are using a solder pin or crimp pin design (Radio Shack usually carries solder-pin units - while there, get a metallized plastic DB-9 hood). I know, having done several of each.
. Much easier to buy a cable assembly from the mfr or a third party parts supplier. Usually you just have to open the case and plug it onto an internal connector. However, if it is soldered internally, then the job would be just about as hard as replacing the connector.
. Probably worth your while to open the case and see what arrangement you have in there. Good luck.
