    A while ago I purchased and installed a “C64/C128 S-Video Bypass/RF Replacement – DIY Kit” from VGP. It installed easily and I get a good composite display image through a RetroTink mini to an HDMI display. Today I tried using the S-Video output from my C128 and there is no color in the display – it is only shades of grey.

    I have verified that the cable and RetroTink mini are working by using another S-Video source. Chroma on my cable does connect to pin 6 on my C128. Is there any reason that I would not be getting color through the S-Video connection of my C128?

    I think I found the issue… dirty contacts in the socket of the C128… I’m getting color after a bit of Non-Ox and a few insertions of the plug.
