Hi. I have recently bought a HDMI to VGA cable adapter from eBay and it turned out to be defective. I suspect the main problem is that loose, pink cable that is not connected wherever it was supposed to be connected to the circuit. I tried to find the circuit schemes/template for this type of adapter, which I thought pretty standard, but failed to do so. If someone can point me to where I need to solder that loose cable on the circuit, it would be greatly appreciated.

P.s. I've asked for a refund but the seller didn't comply and PayPal asked me to return the item to the seller with a tracking code, which would cost more than what I have paid.

P.s. I just created an account on this forum to post this question. If this is against the forum rules please feel free to delete it - but if someone can suggest me another forum (stackexchange, reddit, etc.) that would be more fit to this type of question, that would be great.

Now that you guys pointed out, yes there is one empty pad coded GND and looks like it needs a wire connection. I'll update this post when I solder it to that pad. Cheers.
