Hello Folks,


Well.....I screwed up.......undersized the conduit to the projector.....I used 2 " PVC and a 90* elbow........now I can't thread my VGA cable through from one end to the other. I don't want to cut open my newly painted drywall if possible..........is it possible to cut one end off the VGA cable...thread it through...and put a new end on after? If so....do you cut it off behind the 15 pin connector...or behind the thing that looks like a miniature plastic 35mm film canister. How would you put a new end on? I'm absolutely desperate for a solution......


Thanks,


Greg

Will the cable still work well? It's a triple shielded 25' cable from PCcables.com.....not very expensive...$16.00......but it works well...do I add a new ferrite core, or not? This cable runs from my HTPC to my projector (AE100) and I'd like to keep the picture as "clean" as possible.


Thanks again,

Greg

With most connectors, you don't have to cut the cable. You should be able to puch the pins out of the connector, remove the shield cover, tape the wires and pins together so they don't get damaged, and run a strong cord through your conduit, tie it to the cable and pull it through. If necessary you can get a small pin tool at an electronics store or computer store.

It should fit. Are you pulling it through or just trying to push it? I do not see any reason that even a large hd15 should not fit through, even with the slight squish of the radius...
