    Pretty sure the TV connection is only for reviewing photos you've already taken so you need to be in "playback" mode.

    Not sure but when you say AV function (Av) I think you've set it to aperture priority mode, that has nothing to do with reviewing on a TV, nor does video mode which is for recording videos. Recorded videos can probably be watched on the TV in playback mode.

    I'd suggest a read of your manual...

    The cable will probably connect to your TV using a yellow phono plug, plus maybe a red or white one for mono sound.

    If your TV has got sockets to accept the yellow red and white plugs then you'll have to select an 'AV' channel like you are watching TV through a Scart, say like you would for a Video or SKY.
    If you haven't got the sockets in your TV then you'll need a Scart adaptor.

    Your TV will probably have a few 'AV' channels, one for each Scart connection, so flick through them to see which one it is playing on.


    Once connected, you should put the camera into playback mode and either choose slideshow or scroll through the pics yourself from the camera.

    Good idea, Videos usually have an easilly accessable composite connection (the three coloured plugs) at the front to connect up a camcorder. Just make sure you also remember to change the channel on the Video player to the AV channel.
