Hy,

I try to connect a LCD monitor to a NeXT Station or a NeXT turbo Station. or a NeXtCube without NeXTDimension board, no color.

Then these computers are normaly working with a 17 " inch balck and white monitor MegaPixel.

Is there anybody who have already connect a LCD flat monitor ( color or balck and white ) on a NeXT Station black and white ?

It will be helpfull because the 17 " B&W is too small and become old.

Regards. David from France.

Hello David,

There's some information on wiring a VGA connector to a mono NeXT in this forum thread:

The actual pin to pin wiring is mentioned in this post:

I hope this works for you. Smile

Hy Nitro,

WONDERFUL !
Thank you for the information you gave to me.

I'm going to build this new connector to connect a NeXT Station B&W mono on a LCD VGA flat monitor.

I will email photos when done.

Regards.
David from France.

I had 5 Y cables made up and they work very well... DB19->DB19 and VGA (you need a soundbox or minimally the soundboard). If people are interested I can order a bunch and make them available for around $50 each (3' or 1m on each part of the Y).

Just as an FYI. Here is a picture of a Turbo Mono cube connected to a Dell LCD monitor, using a soundboard. I figure that as the N400A monitors die off, this will be a viable alternative. The cables are currently 3' in length, but it's only $1 per extra foot... but the cables aren't a flexible as those nice NeXT cables either Smile
