Re: security camera hook up
Yes it's possible.
You have several options with your TV. You can use the Video-In from the auxiliary/line in or even though a VCR. The plugs in this case use what are called RCA Jacks. They travel in three's, one yellow, one red and one white. The yellow is the Video.
Any hook up is going to be dependent upon the output from your camera. Security cameras, for the most part output a video signal much the same as a VCR. Some however use RF (Radio Frequency) which requires it to be attached to a cable or antennae jack and then tuned in (usually channel 3 or 4).
If it's a straight NTSC Video signal there should be no problem. A long cord with RCA jacks to the Video-In would do it. Then you could switch the channel to AUX or Line One (which ever your model uses) to get the camera signal.
Computer cameras have a whole different way of doing things. If you run into any snags, comment me back with the make and model of your camera. I'll get you up and running.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The a v leads( red and white and yellow usually) should fit into corresponding sockets on most modern tvs. Then put the tv onto a/v input. That should do it. For more than one camers, use an a/v switching box to take the camera inputs and then use the switch to see the different camera streams.
component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).
Basically, all you need is:
1- Power-up the camera.
2- Select video input 1 or 2 on your TV.
3- Run a cable from the camera to the TV
4- Connect the cable coming from the camera to video input 1 or 2 on your TV.
The cable you run from the camera to the TV has 2 Ends.
One End connects to the camera (BNC plug) the other End connects to the TV (RCA yellow plug)
I hope this helps. If not, provide the model# for the TV and camera, and if I come across your post I will be Happy to contribute.
I had exact same problem and it took forever to fix but I did fix it. If I plugged the camera into the tv it worked but when I tried going through the dvr no picture at all. The problem was the power supply cord to the cameras. It was bad, I happen to have another one and that was it. All cameras working!
It could be as simple as your video cable going bad. Check to make sure the wire is in good shape and that the contacts and connections are secure.
I would say try using it with an HDMI cable (if possible) and see if the problem persists. You can also try and hook up another device (DVD player, camera, PS2, etc) to the TV input you are using now and see if it is the TV that is giving you trouble.
If you haven't done so already, check that the cable between your tv and digital cable box(probably HDMI) is secure at both ends. If it is, try a different cable and/or different port on your tv if you have more than one. If the issue is still there after you've tried these options it's most likely an issue with either the digital box or tv. I would contact manufacturer at this stage for advise and possible replacement of tv or box if they are under warranty.
Hope this helps.
if your camera has a video and audio cable then it is possible,just connect the one part to your camera and the other part to the audio and video output of your tv and the switch your tv to AV, if it does not display interchange the cable you connected to the tv.
It is a wireless video camera that should have a camera with it.You hook the RCA plugs to your TV or VCR hook a 12v dc power supply to it. Then hook your camera to a power supply and it should work.Make sure you have the reciever and the camera switches on the back the same. The four switches are used with one to four cameras. To use all four they must all be turned on. The round thing on the camera and receiver is an antenna with an arrow on the top. Turn the one on the camera towards the receiver. Hope that answers your question. The camera has a place for a battery or you can use a power supply.
did you fully charge the battery before use when you bought the camera? and is it charged now?
most cameras can take photos but not be able to hook up to download. because photos take less energy it may be that it has just enough energy to take a picture, but not quite enough to do anything else.
i don't think your stupid, its just that some people don't think of the little things as be possible.
also could check to see if there is any obstructions. (dirt, little pieces of plastic, etc.) on the main routing items. (memory card, plug-both ends, inside the camera housing itself).
hope i could help
