True, the SAM SCART cable is a special one. Either you make one yourself or you
order from Colin (http://www.samcoupe.com/). I once managed to reverse an
original SAM cable and did not pay attention to the labels “TV” and “SAM”. This
also lead to a black screen.

You need a special Scart cable. The wiring is in the manual. Alternative is the
Composite Video and Audio signal from the Power socket.

All the electronics have arrived, but when I connect it all up, there is no
My disk light flashes on power up and when I push the f9 key, but no video
Is it possible I need a special SCART cable (I have seen one on eBay)?
I am running out of ideas as to what could be wrong.

Thanks to some generous relatives, I have had my Sam shipped over from the UK
to the USA (where I now live).
Voltage is not a concern, step up converters are cheap on Amazon. But I would
like to be able to display the image from the Sam on my TV and unfortunately
SCART sockets were never put on American TVs.
What would be the best option for converting the SCART to an HDMI connector?
Would something like this be OK?
Any help/advice gratefully accepted.
