Looking for tube camera pinout references

Post by kedamono » Sun Sep 13, 2020 9:18 am

Recently I picked up an old JVC tube camera without connector thinking that I'd be able to find a replacement cable or make one myself, but I highly overestimated how much info there was out there about these cameras. Does anybody know of any websites with relevant info, or barring that, how I can start to figure out the pinout myself?

Apologies for a late reply. The camera is a JVC GX-S9U, and it has a ten pin connector.

this eBay auction appears to include the multipin cable and instruction manual. ask the seller to confirm? https://www.ebay.com/itm/jvc-Color-vide ... SwtapfOxKU
