    I've linked a Pacific DVD 1002 to a projector using a RGB scart lead but the colour on screen looks as though the wiring is wrong. I've checked the projector is correctly configured. My problem is that I don't know whether: the lead is faulty; the projector input is faulty or the DVD output is at fault. Any suggestions?

    OK.....The Y, Pb,Pr sockets are probably coloured Red green and blue but will that doesn't mean they accept RGB. They accept Y Pr Pb component.....

    An RGB scart lead would be expected to have 4 cables. Red, Green and Blue plus Composite video as that carries the sync signal that is required for it to work.

    If the DVD doesn't have component output then use s-video.

    you can get a toshiba 240 from RS for only £45 which can output progressive scan component. I'd say this would be a wise investment, after all the projector was expensive, you want to take full advantage of it.
