If anybody has the factory cable, please pin it out on a meter. Chances are if a r/w/y cable didn't work from a video recorder, trying all the combinations, the ground is different than normal. If this unit has screws on it, taking the top off and having a peak should reveal what the wiring is. Ok, just pried mine open after taking the 2 hidden screws out. Warranty is now void.
Connector is Foxconn and what looks like a date code, no part number. Appears to be http://www.foxconn.com/NWInG/catalog/sp ... 205-4F.pdf
. It may not be your normal 3.5 mm plug, there are 2 switches that open when you push it in. The spacing or width on the male plug band rings may be different than normal. Look at this cable, then this one, the 3rd ring down has a small step, the other does not. Foxconn website, do a search , then under specs. CR03C05A04-Y01-EF CR03C05R04-X02-EF. Not saying foxconn makes their cable, most likely not, could be anybody. I see foxconn selling 3.5 cables but are color coded for audio. This web site will explain the different pinouts, all 4 pole 3.5mm, there lies the problem, which pinout is the one we need? http://anythingbutipod.com/2006/04/zen- ... m-pinouts/
Some have the ground on pin 1 others have the ground on pin 2, colors will be different for the component but who cares, that is just trial and error. Just looking at this board some more, you could mod it to make the component come out of the 3 rca jacks, but using the component would either turn off the hdmi or composite. Damm, been a while since i soldered 603 or 802 ??? surface mount and this stuff is small.
