View Full Version : AV Not Working
18th of June 2001 (Mon), 00:31
Have tried feeding the AV output to my TV with no luck. Using the video input on a very new HDTV (so, should have modern sensitivity) I get a very, very weak signal that is so weak it rolls (can't get vertical sync) and is B&W. Tried connecting instead to a new AV receiver, then to the TV; same result. Looks to me that the video drive on the G1 is inadequate. Others have this experience, or do I have a bad unit? (it is new).

I tried the AV output to a regular TV through the VCR video imput. It worked great! I had taken pictures at a party and then showed them on the TV. Everyone gathered around and had a good laugh. The quality was very good on a 21" screen.
I would say that you either have it hooked up wrong or have a problem. You might try to hook up through a VCR or a TV with a video imput jack built in.

Connected to front panel video inputs of TV, AV receiver, and VCR. All did the same: I get a faint, B&W picture that rolls due to no or weak sync. Same with different video cable too. I think the camera's flawed.

I have had my G1 for 3 years and the AV has always worked fine. I just returned from a long trip and plugged my G1 into the TV and am getting the rolling B&W problem discussed.
I tried the camera/cable on 2 different TVs with the same result.
Has anyone had this problem and been able to resolve it?
Is it just a matter of time before this part fails?
I don't use it that much, but once in a while I like to show people pics on the TV or make a slideshow video for the non-computer types.
Help. I've had great experience with my G1 and would hate to have it fail now.

I found it the first day I owned the camera. Took it back to vendor who verified in the store and gave me a new unit, which worked fine. Thus, appears to be an electronic issue, one which is not simply fixed.

I found a thread under G3 with a solution that worked.
Make sure the Video System setting is NTSC, not PAL.
This fixed the problem. An amazingly simple fix.
Works just fine now.
