SCL and SDA would usually refer to the two lines in the i2c serial protocol. Obviously the others would be for the power. If the silkscreening is accurate it seems that this wouldn't be where the video input is.

Trace where the RCA plugs go. Assuming its composite video then follow the yellow RCA plugs.
