Unhappy Dark S-video Problem

Hi, I have the following problem. My video signal path is as follows:
SA 8000 -> JVC HS-3912U S-VHS VCR (via s-video) -> Infocus X1 projector (also via s-video)

After returning from vacation, I turned on the equipment but the projector didn't detect any input signal. I tried connecting the 8000 directly to the projector, and it works but the picture is very dark (unwatchable). What could have happened? Nobody touched the equipment while I was gone. Is the problem likely to be the 8000, the s-video cable, or the projector?

Hook up the S-VCR to the FP via the cable. If that works, it's the STB, if that doesn't work, you'll need to narrow it the other way...
