? repairing Adept Ultraone robot

I bought an old Adept Ultraone robot on ebay and am trying to bring it to life, but need a little help. The monitor, mouse, keyboad and
cables are missing, as well as the cables going from the controller to the robot.
My first problem is hooking up a monitor to see what is going on in the Adept CC controller. I do not have the Adept cable or the NEC 3D monitor that were orignial equipment. I tried hooking up a modern Dell P1110 monitor using a hacked up video extension cable and connected the wires for the green signal and the green return to a bnc connector connected to the Adept rgb bnc connenctor for the green signal and got a fleeting screen images from the controller, but they are only visible for a few seconds then disappear. I understand Adept uses a sync on green design for their video and found a ref on a Playstation hack page that the Dell P1110 works with Playstations that apparently sync on green as well.
Any suggestions on a video cable pinout or a current monitor that will work on this old Adept controller?
I'm interested in buying some of these old cables if anyone wants to part with one, or will pay you to ring them and give me the pinout so I can make my own. I will try calling Adept to buy real replacement parts from them, but I know they want alot for their parts and I am doing this project on a very small budget.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Doug I'm a little fuzzy on the CC controller, in fact don't even recognize that designation. I haven't gotten my hands dirty with Adept for some time. I thought that all of the Adept controllers had a simple 9-pin D-Sub connector for simple text output to dumb terminals or dumb-terminal emulators (but ya gotta know the parms....8N1 etc., and might require a setup change in the config.sys file to designate where the video output goes, and THAT requires a monitor....Catch 22. Otherwise the color video output required something similar to the VGB Video Graphics Board that Staubli sold with their units. Or a copy of AdeptWindows Online so that you can connect to the controller with your PC via internet.
You can go to Adept.com and download most if not all of their manuals now...it appears that they stopped trying to sell them. Cable pinouts should be in the controller user guide or controller reference guide.
You may want to consider using Antenen Research www.antenenresearch.com or any of the other used-robot companies as a resource. Isn't there a Yahoo Groups discussion group? You might get a better response there.

Larry,
Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately, there are no Ultraone manuals on the Adept page. I will give Antennen a try.
Thanks again,
Doug Danielson
