    i have just got a pw6 from richer sounds with no other input apart from the vga input

    i was told that if i buy a scart / vga converter this would work, which i did

    1. when the dvd is the source the screen is bright pink or blue. i changed scarts, dvd's, settings still the same

    2. when Sky + is the source there is no picture atall. there is a signal but no picture.

    please help as the missus is on the you paid what for this trial

    Sounds simple, I hope!

    Go into the picture menu on the PW6 and check whether you have the VGA input set for RGB. It sounds like it is set on component, that is why it is pink/blue on DVD. change as appropriate.

    For sky, check that you have the skybox outputting RGB signals, go into the sky setup menu and into the picture settings, change the picture output to RGB.

    My guess is that this will sort out your problems.

    not so simple

    on pw6 the settings are component/rgb selected as RGB
    input label selected as RGB

    both are now showing as no signal ?? on the screen (sky and DVD)

    i have a js technologies RGB to plasma converter VGA v.2

    The input says RGB Scart (this is a normal scart yes ?)

    any help ?

    to try and keep it simple i have the dvd and sky not connected

    so the dvd scart goes into the scart vga converter and the sky does the same when i'm trying to get that to work

    yes the red light is on

    H+V is what you ned for the JS box try that and while RGB scart is a fully wired scart cable you have to tell the source device (DVD player) to output RGB on Scart most default to composite which will give you no picture
