Default Audio-video cable for the 5700?

To all the electronic guys/gals - my used 5700 came without the audio video cable that is needed to hook the camera up to the TV/VCR. Is it something special or can I pick up a facsimile at Radio Shack? If so, what should I ask for? Much appreciated.

Larry,
It's probably simplier to order one from Nikon.
However if you insist,
The nikon video/audio cable can be replaced with two cables that have a 1/8" stereo plug (same as stereo headphones) on one end for the camera and RCA type plugs on the other. It needs to be two seperate shielded cables with the shields connected together at the stereo plug end and attached to the barrel of the stereo plug(the long part). The tip of the stereo plug is the video and the center band on the plug is the audio. The Nikon cable has a interference filter on the cable to prevent the camera video or audio from creating interference lines or patterns on your recorded or displayed video.
Not sure, if you can find a non nikon replacement at Radio Shack.
If you take this description to a knowledgable salesperson they may be able to find one.

Ted - you were right on. Using your description a knowledgeable Radio Shack employee hooked me up with a set for $10.

Larry,
I am glad you found one. Give us the Radio Shack part number for others that are looking for the same thing.
