Viewing images on a standard TV (using a Stereo AV Cable)

By using the Stereo AV Cable [AVC-DC400ST] (sold separately), you can connect the camera to a TV to view the captured images.

important:

  • Images will not display correctly if the camera's video output setting (NTSC / PAL) does not match the TV system. Press the <> button, and then select the [Set up] () tab > [Video System] to switch to the correct video output setting.


1. Turn off the camera and the TV.


2. Connect the Stereo AV Cable to the camera’s [A/V OUT / DIGITAL] terminal.


3. Connect the Stereo AV Cable to the TV’s video-in terminal and audio-in terminal.

Plug the yellow terminal into the VIDEO IN jack (Yellow) on the TV.

Plug the white terminal into the AUDIO IN jack (Left) (White) on the TV.

Plug the red terminal into the AUDIO IN jack (Right) (Red) on the TV.


4. Turn on the TV and switch it to video mode.


5. Press the <Playback> () button to turn on the camera.

The image will appear on the TV (nothing will appear on the screen of the camera).

When you want to stop playing back images, turn off the camera and the TV first before removing the Stereo AV Cable.

Viewing images on an HD (High-Definition) TV (using an HDMI Cable)

By using the HDMI Cable [HTC-100] (sold separately), you can connect the camera to a high-definition TV and enhance your viewing experience.

When you connect the camera to an HDMI CEC-compatible TV, you can use the TV's remote control to operate the camera and play back images or view slideshows.

important:

  • Operation sounds will not play when connected to a high-definition TV.
  • Some TVs may not be able to control the camera properly even though they are HDMI CEC compatible.
