Connect to tv problem
The cable you describe should be the only cable that you need. You want to make sure that you switch to whichever input you connect to on your TV. If you are getting sound but no picture there may be a problem with either the input or your cable. Connect the cable to a different input to see if it works. If it does then the problem is with the input on your TV. If it doesn't work then there is something wrong with the cable. You may have to get it replaced at the place you purchased the camera from/

I had the same problem and found numerous solutions on the internet. The most common and apparently most successful was to remove the battery and give the camera a sharp whack. Didn't work for me. I tried to find a seperate CMOS battery to remove that but couldn't but your model may have one - try that. Then I found a thread at http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/sony-hvr-a1-hdr-hc-series/88013-moisture-condensation-2.html which suggested cleaning the moisture sensor on the left hand side at the very back of the tape transport mechanism. It is oblong shaped, has two solder points at its top and (in my case) a black square that should actually be a black circuit like pattern. Scroll through the aforementioned thread and you'll find photos to help you locate it. Using a cotton wool bud soaked in CD lens cleaning alcohol (you'll need a long one or small fingers :-) a couple of wipes was all that was needed to reveal the pattern. I re-inserted the cassete but still the same problem. With the camera turned on I then used a paper clip to depress the reset button (Flap open the LCD screen and you'll find it under the auto lock slider switch). The camera "re-booted" and everything worked fine! I had to reset the date and time and all my settings preferences but no big drama. Hope that helps.
