Software issues, supports sucks, rca jacks dont work
Hi I m also stuck, i cant seem to detect my video camera using the front rca panel jack on my gateway lx 6810, but i finally was able to use the tv tuner that came with the computer by installing nero9. I have chatted with the gateway people, they are of no use. the support people **** big time. they would simply point you to getting the paid support serivice, i dont know how good they would be even if I buy the support, because what i have heard is that . once you buy the support those suckers will only ask you to buy another software to run those rca jacks. that is how gateway makes money. they also said i need a driver for the camera . I bet those bloody suckers would also say the sme if you ask them how to connect a dvd player. they would say ''there has to be a driver for the dvd player,'' OMG i cant stopp laughing then they say that. '' its a third party equipment driver issue''.. man now I know all the terms gateway teaches them to say to customers to make them buy the support.Haha

It depens on what the cable box outputs are, you need to see if it has RF Coaxial jack (use CH3 or CH 4 on the TV), composite video out (Yellow RCA jack) with red and white RCA for audio, component video outputs (Red, Green, and Blue RCA jacks), or HDMI output jacks. HDMI and component video are for HI-DEF if you subscribe to the HI-def package. The cable company should provide you with the owner manual. Please post back with more info.
I believe that you have to instruct the software from where it should be receiving the video signal. Pls try in your video capture software (Ulead), pls go to the Options menu, click on the Capture Property Settings, Select yourInput Source (S-Video or the Yellow RCA). Other than that, it should be pretty straightforward.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

If you have just one Audio Out RCA jack then the camcorder only recorded in MONO, so all you would need to do is either plug the wire coming from your single Audio Out jack into the left or white input jack of your Capture Device which may have an option in the software program to set it to recieve audio in MONO, or you can buy a RCA Jack Splitter that goes from a single Female RCA jack on one end and 2 Male RCA Jacks on the other end. Then you take the end of the Splitter with 2 plugs and plug one of them into the White Jack and the other into the Red Jack on your Capture Device, and the other end with just one plug should plug into the cord coming from the Black Jack on your Camcorder.
I would be interested to know the model number of the camera. "Coax" jacks are usually only used for tuners. It is more possible that it is a BNC connection. If it truly is coax than they may have used the coax jack because an RCA style plug would come unplugged too easily while driving.
Just get an F (male or female depending on the connection) to RCA (female) adapter and an RCA cable and plug it into any composite (yellow) video input.
If it is BNC than get a BNC to RCA adapter.
Take the part into Radio Shack and they will have the right adapter.
The computer must have standard Audio/Video (A/V) RCA input jacks and
compatible video capture software to complete this procedure.
Because there are many different video capture applications on the
market and we cannot reasonably know which video capture software you
are using, Sony is unable to provide specific instructions or support
for software we do not manufacture.
However, many video capture applications have detailed help files,
including specific instructions about capturing and importing video
from a camcorder to a computer.
The help files should be available in the Help menu of the
video capture software or in a separate file on the software disc. If
you cannot find instructions in the help file or on the disc included
with your software, consult the software manufacturer for more detailed
Connect an A/V cable to the A/V output jack of the camcorder:
If your camcorder has standard A/V RCA output jacks, use standard A/V cables for the connection.
If your camcorder has a mini A/V output jack, use an A/V cable with a mini connection on one end.
Connect the other end of the A/V cable to the A/V input jack on the computer.
Turn on the camcorder to the VCR, VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
Cue the video in the camcorder to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
Turn on the computer.
Start the video capture software.
Begin playing the video in the camcorder.
Begin importing the video with the video capture software.
It is either Software or Hardware - both solutions below... best of luck
Just in case this setting got mixed up, go to menu - tools - settings - general - enhancement - and make sure your default is set to "Headset". If it is already set to "Headset" then it may be a hardware issue...
The Nokia detects a 2.5mm jack when inserted and defaults to the standard headset mode (sound comes out through the headset but uses the phone speaker). There could be 2 causes to this (1) short in the headset jack or (2) debris in the headset jack that is making a connection between the contacts.
I recommend that you use a "can of air" sprayed directly in the jack to clear any debris. If this does not work, plug in the phone/headset jack that came with it and ensure that it detects it.
If that does not work, it is a short and you should return it or, if it is out of warranty, get someone skilled to replace or disable the jack (only do this is you have no other option -- Nokia won't touch it after you open and solder it).
Yes, the front RCA jacks on the Sony sets always seem to crack loose. I have seen that many, many times. To get to those jacks, you will have to remove the back of the TV and carefully pull out the main chassis, taking care not to pull out any wires or jacks. When the main chassis slides back, there is a smaller board in front of the main board, and the pushbuttons and RCA jacks are on that smaller board. The connectors to that board usually come off when you slide the main chassis back, so you will need to put those jacks back in place when reassembling. Slide the smaller board back, flip it over and resolder the connections on the RCA jacks. Sometimes I find that the copper trace to the center pin of the video (yellow) RCA jack is broken, so test for continuity and solder a small jumper wire to take the place of the cracked copper trace if necessary. Reassembnle the set and your jacks should be working fine.
