do u see kodak logo on zi8's screen when you plug the wires and when unplug it? if no then it seems like your camera works fine you just trying to watch it on the wrong channel . Connect it and scroll through the channels

Something to try is to set the regon in the menu for PAL or NTSC depending on the region you're in

lets take a step back.

TV set:

Tv has Video channals, exaple:
TV, vid 1, vid 2, HDMI, Comp, etc.....

You should choose Vid 1 and lets just say it is standard def.

with the tv on Vid 1, take hte cam, locate the Vid 1 ports Yellow (video) red white (audio).

cam is plugged like for like, tv is on vid 1, and now the cams port should be the sterio plug only.

Turn cam on cam will go to live screen 1 second, and then go blank to nothing on it.

When you see not a thing o nthe cam, your TV now is the Monitor, that is it.

thesame will happen if you use the HDMI port, but you must plug in hte standard def cable of red/white to the audio. for HDTV.

If you do not see a picture, make sure that you have tried one of those rca's to the yellow for video, I had a cable being a flaw where the red was video.


hope that helps out.
