I have bought an RGB Scart cable from lik-sang. It worked for a short while now it dosent. I unplugged it because i needed to move the console and I saw a small piece of solder fall out. It still displays a good picture (steady and clear) but it dosent seem to have any blue in it. For example the start-up screen is yellow with a green swirl!!.

I have opened up the scart end and compared it to a pin-out guide I found on-line but I cant seem to see what is missing. It all seems to be wired properly.

Any ideas?

P.S. This is a Euro Dreamcast and lead that i am talking about.

Check for continuity with a multimeter

Sorted now. It was the connection at the Dreamcast end. It is a tight fit and it wasnt quite in far enough. I found that if i pushed the connection up or down slightly when in the machine the display lost a colour. It is a bit dodgy but it is working for now and the lead was cheap.

Thanks
