Question about Nikon Coolpix 4500 Digital Camera

Can't get signal to TV with AV cable

My Coolpix 4500 did not have an AV cable, so I purchased one online. I can not get any signal to a TV set with it. I tried the 2 video modes per the manual and a couple of different TVs, with no luck. I am following the directions in the manual exactly with no success. The camera acts like nothing is plugged into the AV output jack.
Thanks

May have a proprietary cable format. try switching up the colors on the TV end (red to yellow / white to yellow.)

may work, depending on the cable you bought.

If all cables are plugged in correctly and your playstation is turning on, your AV cable may be broken. AV cables are inexpensive and can be purchased online from websites like Amazon.com

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?


If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:

Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_14.jpg
Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

When I connect my magnavox blu ray player to my soyo 32" lcd hdtv with audio video jacks my tv screen reads no source. how do I resolve this proble


Purchase an HDMI cable for excellent quality sound and pictures. I suspect the A/V leads will work if you set the TV to the AV channel that is assigned to the AV sockets otherwise you will get a blue screen and no signals.
Hope that clears your problem.

How do I hook up a Samsung CXJ1952 to a DVD player? Does it need an RF converter to turn the RCA plug signals into coaxial cable?


it should be the other way around if the tv has av inputs then hook the two units up using av cables if the tv does not have av input then youl need to purchase a rf to av converter

Av connections not giving signal to tv


you have to manually change the output in the settings menu back to ANALOG Using an HDMI TV or monitor 1st, when you select RCA, or AV output and restart, it will work, but when you switch back, you have to change it (back to HDMI output) on the analog monitor, or use analog TV inputs, then reboot PS3 and connect HDMI.
I do not know why Sony did not make this switch automatic and self scanning on boot, but alas I have had the same issue, so I know this is your problem, not the AV cables.

Please give a fixya rating if you find this solves your problem, Thanks for the question
