A/v connection problem on scmx10 digital camcorder
My son has a digital camcorder (Samsung SCMX10). The A/V cable is not connecting to the television properly. You plug it into the jack on the side of the camera, then have to wiggle it around to get any audio or video on the TV. Sometimes both the audio and video work, sometimes one or the other works, sometimes neither works. The camera is out of warranty, but we've only had it about 6 months. Do you think the cable is bad, or would it be that the jack has come loose? Any ideas?

have you tried connecting other memory drives with your computer? maybe there is a problem with your computer's hard drive. If the other devices can be connected, then check your cord for an damages and get a new one perhaps
If you have your driver cd install it.If you have the Data cable for your camcorder.Connect your camcorder with data cable and another end to the computer.Or remove your memory card to computer with memory card reader.Then you can import your photos to computer.
To find out you should check on the Samsung website.
1. Navigate to http://www.samsung.com/au/. 2. SelectTroubleshooting from the Support drop down menu, located top/right of screen. 3. In the Search product support field, typeDigimax 4010. (NOTE: Check that it is 4010 and not 401). Press <Enter>.
Look at anything which appears to be relevant. I have quickly scanned the manual for the 401 and couldn't find anything that was related to using it as a WebCam however, SAMSUNG provided the following information to the question:
USB cable to the camcorder and the PC.
Power On the
Camcorder and put in REC Mode. Windows will detect the device. (If
you are using a DuoCam, you must use the Camcorder side.)
or other webcam software.
If using Messenger,
click on the Webcam Button in the message pane of the "contact" with
whom you wish to share video. Read the agreement and click OK.
Yes, you can transfer the videos from the Camcorder to the Mac Computer.
Connect the Camcorder to the Mac Computer using i.LINK/Firewire or USB cable.
I suggest that you use the i.LINK/Firewire cable to connect it to the Computer. The i.LINK port is also called IEEE 1394 or Firewire port. An i.LINK is a black D shaped connector with 4 or 6 pins. The type of cable to be used will depend on the i.LINK port of your Computer.
After connecting the Camcorder to the Mac Computer, open the iMovie Application to capture the Videos from the Camcorder and follow the on-screen instruction to complete the transfer of the videos.
I had the same problem with my Canon HF S11 camcorder and found the solution was to connect the usb cable to the back usb port of my computer. Imagemixer then detected the camcorder to transfer videos. Hope this helps.
You may have to go to Cannon's web site and download the software for that video camera to your computer. Some computers will not automatically see all devises on it's own without the specific software for it.
I know before I switched to using Macs I usually always had to download the software. Even w/ the macs you sometimes have to do so.
At least Cannon's web site should offer some tips and solutions for using that product.
i am now facing the same problem but i found that i need to buy a mini DV cable to connect from the camera to the computer, the USB connection to the computer only allows you to transfer digital images from the camera that you have stored on the memory stick which you may not have inserted in the camera as the computer indicated to you
