Ok, on to the problems. How may I connect the A4000 to a video device so I can see the screen (TV/VGA monitor)? It only has an Amiga RGB out (no Video Composite, S-Video or RF). I used to have one of those old multiscan NEC monitors to connect directly, but thats gone by now. I have a video cable (Amiga 23-pin RGB to SCART), but my 2 TVs with SCART show no video (the black image goes light grey when the Amiga is on, and flickers when I reset, but nothing else). The hard drives have no Amiga system (I think they where used on my PC). The A4000 seems to work, because I turn it on and it seems to boot from the Workbench floppy.
Before I attempt to copy AmigaSYS to the IDE HD and put it on the Amiga, I need to confirm the Amiga still works. Do you think it's simply not working? Any idea on how I can try to get the video signal from the 23-pin RGB out to a TV/VGA monitor? I have a RGB-VGA plug converter, but I need the Workbench on DlbPAL or something before I can connect my Sony VGA monitor, and for that I must access the "normal" 15KHz Amiga modes... even for the Boot Menu (both mouse buttons down on boot) to choose the boot drive.Any generous soul care to help me? Thanks in advance!
You can use a VGA Box
to view the standard modes via composite to a VGA monitor.
What about your graphics card. what does that output?
You could also try an proper Amiga SCART cable from AmigaKit if you are having issues with your one.
