I have this sony vaio LCD monitor with this stupid proprietary plug and was wondering if anyone knows if there are adapters available for it?
the plug handles power, video, sound, keyboard, mouse, and USB.
or does anyone know the pin out for this?
here's some pics...

Thanks, Chad

I have no clue how accurate this may be:

There are actuall 34 pins counting the two large gold pins at either end:

1 DDC_SCL 17 DDC_SDA
2 SUS_LED 18 MSG_LED
3 KBD_DAT 19 MOUSE_DAT
4 KBD_CLK 20 MOUSE_CLK
5 Tx2+ 21 GND
6 Tx2- 22 Tx1+
7 GND 23 Tx1-
8 Tx0+ 24 GND
9 Tx0- 25 GxCLK+
10 GND 26 TxCLK-
11 Audio Left out 27 Audio GND
12 Audio Right out 28 USB Data+
13 +5V USB 29 USB Data-
14 Tablet TxD# 30 Tablet RxD#
15 BL_ON 31 Tablet DTR#
16 +5V KBD/MOUSE 32 GND
33 (P1) GND
34 (P2) +12V

The above pinout data was taken from
HERE.

Sorry the list is a bit hard to read for pinout.

Also, could you reduce the image sizes as they are sort of big and break the tables.

And I forgot to include the model number... PCVA-15QA1 although I bet the pin-out is the same... as the one you posted... hoping I don't have to use it LOL

well after much searching I have come up nill, I don't know if I'll be able to pull this off, but I'm going to try putting a big 12v power block on it for power and I'm still trying to figure out what goes where as far as the rest LOL. I think I can eliminate 11, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 27, 28, 29, 30, 31.

well now I find this... not sure which one to go off of. LOL

One image is a DVI-D connector pinout. Your image is the propritary Sony connector.

I remember those monitors from my CompUSA selling days. $1,500 back in 2000.

Those Sony's pre-date the DVI standard. They are digital monitors, however. They kind of followed Apple's lead (anyone remember Apple's Digital 17" CRT? ) regarding the 'one cable' concept...

They plugged into a proprietary 'brick' which converted the digital signal to analog for a standard computer, or were bundled with an ATI Rage 3D, or GeForce MX200 card with the digital connector. The brick held USB ports for accessories.

If you're trying to replace the plug with a traditional DVI plug, I hope you're successful. But your best bet is to hunt down the power/signal brick on eBay.
