Playback on a TV Set

By connecting the camera to a television with an HDMI cable, you can play back the captured still photos and movies on the television. Using the HDMI Cable HTC-100 (sold separately) is recommended.

If the image does not appear on the TV screen, check if the [Set-up: Video system] is correctly set to [For NTSC] or [For PAL] (depending on the video system of your television).

  1. Connect the HDMI cable to the camera.

    • With the plug's HDMI MINI logo facing the front of the camera, insert it into the HDMI mini output terminal.
  2. Connect the HDMI cable to the television.

    • Connect the HDMI cable to the television's HDMI IN port.
  3. Turn on the television and switch the television's video input to select the connected port.

  4. Set the camera's power switch to Power on.

  5. Press the Playback button.

    • The image will appear on the TV screen. (Nothing will be displayed on the camera screen.)
    • Images are automatically displayed at optimal resolution for connected televisions.


  • Adjust movie sound volume with the TV set. The sound volume cannot be adjusted with the camera.
  • Before connecting or disconnecting the cable between the camera and television, turn off the camera and television.
  • Depending on the television, part of the image displayed may be cut off.
  • Do not connect any other device's output to the camera's HDMI mini OUT terminal terminal. Doing so may cause a malfunction.
  • Certain televisions may not display the images due to incompatibility.
  • It may take some time before images are displayed. To avoid delay, set [Set-up: HDMI resolution] to [1080p] ().
  • Touch-screen operations are not supported while the camera is connected to a television.
