    Thanks for that! So with the 180 (straight out the back, I guess) connector, I need to install with the wider bit to the bottom, then connect the top row of pins on the connector to the row nearest the back, and the bottom row of pins furthest away?

    This is what I'm going on - http://elgensrepairs.blogspot.co.uk/...enhancing.html . If you've got any more pics of the scart and connection that would be great!

    no check the link i gave here,180 degree is opposite to 90 not straight out the back


    i have seen that link and that was a straight out pin socket he had already i suggest you get a socket in the link i provided,no guesswork required and just simply solder it in,simple

    why have all the extra work of wiring a socket with 21 pins? when you can get a socket made for the job?

    Perfect, if that fits without messing around so much the better

    Finally getting around to fitting the scart socket... Found that CP2 has disintegrated! It`s a paper capacitor next to the power switch that has exploded, so that needs replacing.

    Other than that it looks straightforward to fit - everything`s there already to go and the connectors are in the right place, thanks Roy! I`ve had to cut the side mounts off to get it to fit and I think I may need to shave a bit off the back to rotate it into the holes whilst the metal surround is still fitted.

    I'm very late to this thread, but I also just installed a SCART port into my 1901 after replacing all of the capacitors (the image was shaky after 15mins of use, this appears to be fixed now). However there's another problem that's ticking me off a bit:

    This is my USA SNES connected via RGB SCART. Notice the gap to the right? Well that's with the horizontal position POT turned all the way in that direction... The 1901 has no POT for horizontal amplitude adjustment.

    It does have vertical amplitude (and v-sync) but no vertical position - who the hell designed this thing?!
