No luck hooking video camera up to TV - no picture

have u checked to see if the camera is PAL or NTSC? If your TV is one and the camera is the Other, then chances are you will not get a picture.

What do i need to play back recorded video onto my t.v from my sony handycam dcr-trv260...i have s cord, usb cord, yellow rca jack??? so what else do i need!!!...nothing i have tried has worked???please...

You can connect this camera to a suitable TV with either the S-Video lead or the RCA lead, but only if the TV is equipped with the appropriate inputs. The S-Video lead looks like a tiny DIN plug, and the RCA jacks are three separate plugs coloured red, white and yellow (yellow is composite video, red and white are left and right stereo sound). If you use S-Video you will also need to make a separate connection for sound (using the red and white RCA connectors). Sometimes the TV sound input is a mini stereo jack, and you will need a Y connector to adapt the two RCA connectors to the mini jack, or maybe the camera's sound output is also by mini jack, in which case you may need the reverse Y connector. Most TVs have some way of accepting a video signal, but you may already be using it for a DVD player or the like.

If your TV lacks these connections, you may be able to use an adapter. In the UK, most recent TVs have a SCART (Peritel) socket, which takes a big plug with 21 connections on it. You can get an adapter to fit that socket that will allow you to plug in the RCA connectors and maybe the S-video too. I don't know what country you are in, or what adapters are available in your country if it isn't the UK.

Once you have made the connections, you must select the appropriate input on your TV. The other possible hiccup is setting the camera to the right video standard, NTSC or PAL., to match that used by your TV.

The USB cord will not connect your camera to the TV.

How can I hook this cam up to my Television?

For this camera you will need to find in your equipment (or purchase) a "stereo video cable "
This cord features a 1/8th (male) headset jack on one end and 3 male RCA jacks on the other. (yellow/red/white).

Plug the 1/8th jack into the camera's AV input and the RCA plugs into your TVs RCA port input and select the correct AV input (AV 1, 2, etc)on your tv selector and the camera should play through your tv.

I cant plug my jvc to my tv .Each time i try,nothing shows up.

I am assuming that you have an AV cable which you need to have connected to your camcorder at the AV output socket, and the other end should have RCA phono plugs (one red, one white and one yellow) which usually connect to three corresponding sockets on the front or side of most modern TV sets, these may be inside a front panel which opens. Once connected, you need to select the appropriate AV input on your TV remote, very often this will be "Front AV" or AV3 or AV4, you need to check your TV instruction manual to be sure of which input is required for your specific model of TV...hope that helps!

Want to view my canon mvx330i camcorder through my tv

Open the front plastic cover to the right of the lens and expose the ports. The yellow one is the AV port. Press the MENU button on the left side and use the rocker switch above to display AV-PHONES, select AV, and press the MENU button to set it and close the menu. Turn both  the camcorder and TV OFF. 
Connect the camcorder AV port to the TV RGB inputs (VIDEO + AUDIO L + AUDIO R) with the cable that came with the camcorder. It has a mini stereo plug at one end and three RCA plugs at the other.
Switch everything on, press PLAY on the camcorder (don't forget to make sure the cassette is wound back to the start). sit back and enjoy.

Strange Audio Problem, Please Help if you Can. Going Cuckoo

t could be that the camera has an A/V jack. A/V jacks are 4 segment connectors whereas most stereo cables are three segment connectors. When a three segment jack is plugged in to an A/V port, you only get one channel of audio. That means your cable should have three rca plugs. Two for the audio and one for the video. I haven't been able to find A/V cables or adaptors in stores. The camera probably should have come with one. I had to special order them on the internet.
