    Hello All.
    I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a Sony Vaio (VGC-VA1) all in one desktop PC with a 20" broken monitor.
    The original monitor had lots of backlights in it where as the replacement only has two so I have used two laptop inverters and that is working correctly.
    The part I am stuck on is the video plug cable arrangement as I can find no pinout for either screen to swap them 1 for 1. I have done this before with success but not with an all in one PC.
    I have linked to a photo I have taken with the model numbers, close-up shots of the two PCB's and looms / plugs.
    If anyone can advise it would be good to get this going again. Buying the correct replacement from Sony is not a worthwhile option.
