You can either use the supplied A/V and USBMulti connector cable for connecting the Camera to the TV. Connect the Yellow cable to the Yellow port on the TV for Video and the Red and White for audio. Then select the proper input on the TV where the cable is connected.
You may also connect the HD Out of the Camera to the HDMI Input on the TV using the compatible HDMI cable for the Camera.
Before connecting the Camera to the TV, you may have to change the settings in the Camera depends on the TV type.
1. Component Settings from the Main Settings 2 Menu of the Camera should be set to HD or SD depends on the connection. Also depends on HDMI (HD) or A/V (SD) video connection.
2. Video Out Settings from the Main Settings 2 menu of the Camera should be set to NTSC or PAL depends upon the color system of the TV.
Try changing the settings in the Camera and connect it to the TV to view the images.
Hi! It's a loose connection between the keyboard and motherboard or a broken keyboard cable. You can remove the back cover (remove front cover first) and
check if the connection is not loose - there's a flexible key board
glued to the internal frame - it may loose connection with the main
board as key board cable's leads are from graphite - it's very cheap
and unreliable solution, cables like these get damaged quite easily. If
the cable is in the connector, looks OK, but the keys still won't work
- the key board has to be replaced. It comes with the frame. If you
feel like repairing it yourself, I can sell you a new frame with the
key board. If not, contact your local Kodak service center or me at
email@example.com This is a well known problem with these cameras and I repair these every day as I work in a Kodak service center.

Actually, you can do it without the cable. You need to have the card inside your camera with at least ONE picture. Hit play. Press menu. Scroll down until you see COPY and then choose "Internal to SD Card" Hit All Frames. Hit OK. Done. Cheers, V+
Thank you for using Fixya. Does the yellow and white cord have a round end with a metal tip on the middle? If it does that is the RCA cable, and it is meant for the Audio and Video inputs of the TV. If it is not round, please let us know the exact model of the camera so that we will be able to find out how the cables should be connected.
With regard to the camera being connected to your computer,, generally what camera uses is a USB cable.
Sounds like maybe the video out socket is stuck, damaged or dirty, without opening the camera you could try inserting the video jack a number of times and give it a gentle wiggle.
Also resetting the camera to default settings may help.. beyond that its in need of repair.
The camera details are not available online as it is a discounted product, however it is supposed to have a standard RCA video out connection (probably with a yellow insulator).
To connect this to a tv you will need a standard RCA cable - you can get them as a combined 3 part cable with a red and a white one to connect the audio also if the camera has this output - maybe it uses a stereo 2.5mm jack plug on the camera end for which you can get a cable or an adaptor.
At the Tv end, the connection depends on what the tv has available - many have direct RCA input connections, if not and it only has a scart input (large rectangular plug with lots of pins) you can get an adaptor for RCA to scart in any electronics store.
After that you just need to establish how to change the source on your tv to match whichever input you are using, most tvs will have a source button on the remote that you just press until you find the right one - some tvs will select this automatically.
If you are having trouble with this, then please post back with the make and model of the tv you want to use, and if possible take a picture of the connections on the tv and on the camera (use a mirror if you cant borrow another camera) and post the photos back here - then i can tell you exactly which cables you need and how to connect it up.
Hope this helps - please post again with details and/or photos if not :)
About the black and white pictures on the TV... not normal I think... I have never seen your camera model but a common thing can happen to any camera!!
Have you already tryed to connect the camera to your TV using a AC Adapter (D-AC8 in your case)?
Are the connections Ok? You're connecting following the manual instructions?
If you don't have it download it... :)
