    Default Amiga scart leads Vs LCD TVs

    Hi All

    Can anyone shed any light as to why all 4 of my Amiga scart leads dont work with my 2 LCD TVs? In some cases I get a completely white screen and on other leads I get a VERY faint Amiga output (depending on which scart lead I use and which socket I put it in). Are LCD scart sockets not the same as regular TV sockets??

    My TVs are:

    Toshiba Regza model 37RV635D
    Samsung model P2270HD

    Ive got a feeling at least one of the cables isnt fully wired (just composite connections are made, at least I think thats it) but even so you would expect them all to work??

    As a complement to schematics, you must also connect the +12 volt of Amiga video connector to pin 16 of scart thru a 330 Ohm resistor. This for switch the tv set to RGB mode. Fast blanking mode.
    If doesnt happen and connect only the pin 8 of scart with +12volt, you see only composite video.
