MAG LT501 LCD Monitor cable pinout question.

  1. I have a MAG LT501 LCD monitor. I’m trying to replace the HD15 end off the cable since my girlfriends dog chewed it off. My problem is that since it was completely severed from the cable I haven/t a clue as to which wire goes to which pin? By chance does anyone know the pinout or maybe even have the datasheet for this monitor? I guess if a person had a toner tool and a MAG LT501 they could maybe just map it out real quick?

    Thank you in advance,

    SDoran

    I have the same problem. I have a call into MAG about a replacement cord. It plugs into the back of the monitor (motherboard).

    If you figure something out, please let me know.

    Thanks

    youre going to need special tools and experience to fix it yourself by adding a new connector. you're best off buying a whole new cable and installing that or taking the monitor to a shop.
