Screen goes black when a/v cord connected

I plug in the cord, the screen goes black.
goes for both the computer cord and the TV cord, so it must be in the camera.
menu doesn't appear, etc... just black.
can't access any pictures, but other than that the camera works fine.

if this is like a setting or something, i'd like to know before taking it to get fixed.
thanks.

Thanks, but i really think the problem is within the camera.
it worked fine, and then one day i plugged the cord in and BAM! black screen. i was so confused. so i tried the other cord it came with, the one for the TV, but the same thing happened. sooo i guess i have to get it fixed :P

I had a bad cable on mine. Once you plug the cord in the camera controls will appear on the screen. If you get a hold of Sony they can get you a new one.

You might be able to find a new one at a computer store depending on what connection goes to the back of you camera to get it to work (like a mini jack).

Hook up to the Wii


Alright so first of all, you should have gotten a cord with a big, grey power brick attached to it. Plug the end in that goes in a outlet, and the other end should hook up to one of the outlets on your Wii console. Then, there should be a cord with three branches. They should be colored red, orange/yellow, and white. On the back/front or on the cable box for your TV there should be plug-ins that are colored either red, white, green, blue, or orange/yellow. The specifications should be written under the outlets (visual, audio, etc...). Plug the white and red part of the cord in to the "audio" outlet (on your tv). The other cord (yellow/orange) should plug in to the outlet that is labeled "video" or "visual" or "screen" or something along the lines of that. The next step is pretty simple. Your Wii (should have) came with a sensor bar. It is thin, long, and black and has a very long, very thin cord attached to it. Plug one side of the cord into your Wii console, and the actual sensor bar goes on top of your TV. There are small, sticky rectangles that help with the sensor bar sticking to your TV. After you've done all that, your Wii is ready to go! Just push the power button and your ready to start playing!

I have an rt2870 and am just wondering where i connect the yellow subwoofer cord to the TV at, and i set my tv setting for the surround sound


You shouldn't connect the subwoofer to the TV. Just connect the Right and Left audio cables (red and white RCA plugs) to the TV audio out and then the other side goes receiver's audio in. If you are using the subwoofer that came with the unit, connect it to the sub port (purple and grey or black striped). The red and black striped cable goes to the subwoofer control.

If you are using another active subwoofer, connect it to the RCA jack labeled Subwoofer Audio OUT.

If you have a 3-plug RCA cable that is a composite video cable. The yellow plug carries the video, the red and white carry the audio signal. This cable is most often used for connecting older VCRs and game systems to a TV (or newer devices to an older TV). Thus leave the yellow jack dangling if using it for an audio cable.

Set your TV to use the external audio speakers and the receiver will take care of the signal to the subwoofer. (You only would connect the speakers individually for a computer sound system.)

I hope this helps.

Make sure it is properly plugged into your computer too. (blue headed cord) should go from the screen to the computer. Make sure the cord is not damaged.

There should be a total of two cords needed (one for power (black) and (one from the computer to screen (usually blue))

How do i hookup a new computer?


Most of the chords fit in only one place.
The power cord, big black one can only go in one place.
The keyboard will be either a round ps2 plug or a usb plug. If it is round plug it into the purple round matching socket close to the top of the tower, if usb then plug it anywhere it fits.
Same with the mouse but that goes in the green socket if its a round ps2 type.
the screen goes in the matching plug. if there is more than one plug for the screen then it goes in the bottom most one.
speakers go in the green speaker connection.
If you have a broadband connection it goes in the network port nmost likely, the only one it will fit in.

Getting started


The black plug which is your ac adaptor goes into the big empty space in the back of the N64, it can only go in one way.

The other cord will be your A/V cord which goes into the back of the N64 either on the far left or far right, that cord also can only go in one way.

After that then you need to plug A/V cords into your TV. Just match the colors of the cords to the inputs on the back of your TV.

Just remember which video input your using on your tv so if your using video 1, video 2, video 3 etc, you know which input you have to change your TV to so you get video on the screen as well as sound.

Your computer may be sending out a video signal that's too high of a resolution for your TV to display. Try reducing the resolution of the computer video signal.
