I am try to help a friend connect a Sony PFM 32C1 monitor to his dvd player. I know the monitor is old but he got it for free so we are trying to make it work.


I've seen a couple of rgb to component converters on Amazon but they convert from rgb to component or HDMI not sure if they will work since the signal will be going the other way. We are new to this and we appreciate any help.

Ok let me try this out, I think his dvd player has an RCA out.


Will the DVD player settings will also work with the S - video port? I just remembered that he had it connected this way the first time he tried to make it work. Thanks

This plasma has two video slot in boards. One's usually for VGA and component, the other for composite video and s-video. If his monitor has the video board as well, it should work with composite video and s-video as well. For composite he needs to make sure that the cable goes to the "in" connector, not the "out" one (on the monitor).


Quality will be considerably worse though. Don't expect anything good from a 13 year old display in regards to deinterlacing.

Fudoh thanks for the help, I order the cable you suggested and I'll try it as soon I get the cable. Unfortunately there is no local place here were I can go and pick up a cable so I have to wait a few days for the box.

Well I got the cable and I plugged it on output 1 and set my dvd player to composite. I got a picture that was not clear it looked liked there was a color missing. I also tried connecting the monitor to a laptop and the picture was the same. Not sure if there is a problem with the monitor or the setup on the computer/dvd player
