Default Difficulty with A40 Pictures on my TV

I am having difficulty projecting the pictures from my Canon A40 camera on my TV. I connected the AV cable to the video input and to the camera, set the camera to play, turned on the TV and no pictures. If I remove the cable from the camera, the picture is on the LCD. I tried pressing display with no effect. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks

you may have to set the video or TV to a different channel to view the pictures so try changing your videos channel

If the TV has 2 scarts at back, the front AV is usually AV3 and should be selected in the TV menu. If this doesn't work, and your cam and TV are not from the SAME region i.e US/UK/ or Europe, then you may have a 'TV out' incompatible standard.
