Maybe we could compare the innards? Mine is ~4 or 5 years old.

Hi Tobias - I'll PM you and maybe then start a fresh thread - we wouldn't want to derail the OP...

Good info about the SCART cable, thanks! I'll buy a different HDMI converter.

Just received a new HDMI converter that works with the RGB SCART signal and I'm happy to report that it works, so the QL is good!
There are missing pixels on the right and a few extra at the bottom, but overall not bad, much better than the B/W TV I used in the 80s.
