Help - Scart problem!!


Established Member
Just wall mounted my new plasma TV. The wall bracket I've used has the main support passing right across the bottom half of the connections area.
This is the area where the scart connections are.
Unfortunately it doesn't leave me with enough room to put a standard scart lead in.
Does anyone know if you can get a scart lead with a smaller than average head on it, or one that bends at 90 degrees instead of the standard 30 degrees?

Please help - it's driving me nuts!!

Just take the shroud (shell or cover) off the plug, and wrap some electrical tape around the exposed wires/pins. I've done this at the back of the AV amp in my kitchen - not enough space for a full-size scart plug.

If your cable has moulded shrouds, buy a new cable - most of the ones with black plastic or chrome shrouds can be dismantled.
