The rear connectors on that monitor are Y/C connectors, not Color
Composite. So unless the cable is dumping out a Y/C signal, it might not
work there (although, IIRC, you should still get a B&W image when plugged
into one of the two channels... so maybe the rear inputs on that monitor
are broken?)

I also recall a switch back there for something. I can't verify as I sent
my 1702 to Toth along with a complete C64 system (which I have regretted
ever since, as it was a very complete system... but I suppose with him it
has a better home where it is really being used, as compared to me where
it probably would have sat in a box for the rest of time)
