Playing Back images/Video Clips on TV
You can also playback your images on a TV screen. Before connecting to any device, make sure to
select NTSC/PAL system to match the video output system of the video equipment you are going to
connect to Vivicam 5340s, then turn all connected devices off.
1. Position Vivicam 5340s on the cradle.
2. Match the docking connectors and carefully insert Vivicam 5340s
until it fits in place.
3. Connect one end of the A/V cable to the A/V terminal of the
4. Connect the other end to the A/V input socket of the TV set.
5. Turn the TV and Vivicam 5340s on.
6. Playback the still images/video clips.
The method of operation is the same as playing back still
images and video clips on Vivicam 5340s.
I hope this helps:)

Try playing the video on a computer some cameras don't have a speaker for playback. Try to download it to the computer to see if you got sound. Most camera hook up to a tv using a av cable which you can do as well. Hope this helps
It is possible to connect your laptop to any LCD TV. For which you need to locate the external VGA port on your laptop. As your Laptop doesn't have S-Video port you would have to deal with the VGA port. There are several adapters available in the market which can solve your problem:VGA to RCA orVGA to S-Video orDual VGA cable Your LCD TV should be equipped with all the ports mentioned above that are:RCA (AV)S-VideoVGA In But as I don't know the model Number of your TV I don't know whether your TV has S-Video or VGA ports but the RCA (AV) are the most common ones which I am pretty sure you would have. Here are some pics of the cables. ^Dual VGA cable ^VGA to RCA or S-Video You can buy these cables from the market and easily connect your system to the TV. If you need further help, please feel free to contact me.
on the back of your VCR there will be a yellow colored port - most likely labeled "OUT" as well as possibly a white/red pair of ports. The yellow is for a VIDEO hookup, the white and red are for AUDIO hookups. These ports use what is called an RCA type connection. Radio Shack, or just about any department store should be able to sell you an inexpensive set of RCA cables.
now on the back of the TV (possibly on the side) you will also have the yellow, white and red ports.
Hook one end of the RCA cable to the colored ports on the VCR, the other end of the cable to the colored ports on the TV.
last thing - the TV most likely has multiple inputs. there is probably a input button on the TVs remote, you need to press that button to cycle through the inputs until you get to the one the VCR is hooked up to. its easiest to put a tape in the VCR and press play - when you get to the right input, you will see your tape...
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.
The tv should be on channel 3. Otherwise, you can go to menu on tv, then find "autoprogram" and it will search all available channels. Usually tv should be on channel 3 if hooked up with a coaxil cable and aux or AV or Input if you are using rca jacks.
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.
Using the iPod AV Cable
Step 11Use the Apple iPod AV cable. This plugs into the RCA ports on your TV or VCR. This is by far the easiest method.
Step 22Connect the AV cable into your iPod. Plug the small end into the iPod where the earbuds would go.
Step 33Connect the red RCA plug. This goes into the right audio input of the television or VCR. The colors should match.
Step 44Connect the white RCA plug. This plugs into the left audio input of your TV. Connect the yellow RCA plug. This goes into the video input of your TV.
Step 55Begin playing a video on the iPod.
