And that's it: an adapter! I made it without 19pin-20pin crossover and that's the effect. The first time I decided to do it on an adapter and my routine failed me. I forgot about the crossover. Before reading the rest of the posts, I decided to do without an adapter. IT LIVES! hahahahaha! The image is a bit bright but I will add a resistor and it will be ok.
I can see there is a really helpful community here - many thanks to YOU.

Don’t get mad, but I wouldn’t trust an adapter in this state.
Gflorez is right. Try it with a suitable cable.

Great plug 4 EP64! Do you make them yourself? Maybe you have to sell? I mean the plug itself without a cable and Scart.

Great!

Your idea of an adapter for a Scart to Scart cable is brilliant, but for it you need to twist your mind... First time with the 90 degrees contacts( at the green PCB on your picture), you can easily swap the rows. And then the second time with the cable, as the schematic is made for the female Scart connector at the TV side.

I would have made a lot of errors, sure.

I wanted to make an adapter to use a standard SCART cable. It's a prototype in the photo. I need a housing and everything on one PCB. I was supposed to mill the plate but I have to think about it ...

I'm glad that it works finally...
BTW it's a great idea to create an adapter instead of a cable, I do the same with all my retro RGB compatible computers/consoles (SMS, Amiga, Spectrum +2A, Videoton TVC & EP128). SCART is the final common way to compatible TVs, and proper size cables are still manufactured up to 5m.

I don't think an adapter is a better idea than a direct cable for someone who only has an EP machine.
The adapter also requires a reliable EP plug first.
And more importantly, the direct cable has less of a contact fault option.
The adapter may be useful for those who connect multiple machines to the same TV.

Yes, I think the same. Is for that I said that the adapter idea is brilliant... as an idea.

On the practice, direct connection is always the best.
