How to Connect a Camera to a TV via an A/V Cable

To connect a camera to your television for viewing only (not recording), you must use an A/V cable. In addition, the television must be equipped with A/V (Audio/Video) inputs (digital sources, such as HDMI, are not compatible).

An A/V cable is an optional accessory that is not included in your camera's box and must be purchased separately. A/V cables can be found at many electronics stores, or you can click here to purchase online from Samsung.

Conneting your camera to your TV

  1. Power the camera on.   

  2. Rotate the mode dial to 'Settings'.   

  3. Select 'Connectivity'.   

  4. Select 'Video Out'.   

  5. For US televisions, select 'NTSC' as the output signal.   

  6. Power off the camera.   

  7. Connect the camera to your TV using the A/V cable.   

  8. Change your television to the proper A/V Source. Generally, you change sources by pressing a button labeled TV/Video, Input, Line In, Source, etc.   

  9. Turn the Camera on. The camera will automatically be in Playback mode when connected to a TV source.   


  10. Select the videos or photos using the camera buttons.

    Depending on the settings of the TV, certain images may not be centered. Try adjusting the picture settings of the TV to change the position of the image.
