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?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The cable you describe should be the only cable that you need. You want to make sure that you switch to whichever input you connect to on your TV. If you are getting sound but no picture there may be a problem with either the input or your cable. Connect the cable to a different input to see if it works. If it does then the problem is with the input on your TV. If it doesn't work then there is something wrong with the cable. You may have to get it replaced at the place you purchased the camera from/
our television must be equipped with a/v inputs.
1. Using the A/V cable provided, connect the proper end to the a/v input jack on your camcorder.
2. Connect the other end to the A/V Inputs on your television.
3. You must tune your television to the proper source / video mode. (Consult television User Manual or manufacturer for further support)
To tune to video mode using the television remote, look for a button labeled:
or press 00
The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided.
After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided.
Connecting to a PC
1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack)
3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC.
* If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged.
* If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly.
* In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder.
Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.
1. Using the A/V Cables provided, connect the proper end of the cable to the Camcorder where labeled A/V Jack
2. Connect the other end to the A/V inputs on the VCR. (Location of A/V jacks may vary by model)
3. You must activate the video mode on your VCR. Look for a button labeled: TV/VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, LINE IN, LINE 1, etc. (For more information, consult the User Manual for the VCR.)
4. Once you are able to view the camcorder playback on your television, press Record on the VCR and play on the Camcorder.
