Digital camera question

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by bkr43050, Aug 19, 2005.

  1. I have a Sony Cybershot P72 camera the came with an audio/video cable to hook my camera up to the TV for viewing. I really liked the cable as it was a nice way to share pics with a large group and at anyone's place. The problem is that now I can't find my A/V cable. I looked at Staples and they have on cable in there that looks like the same but I did not have my camera with me to test. Does anyone have any experience with this? I wanted to avoid buying the cable and returning it if it were the wrong one.

    brian cant say for sure but most of the time as long as the A/V cable will hook to the cam it will work.

    Try a regular RCA cable. That might work and they're inexpensive.
  4. I have the camera with me today I may head out to Radio Shack at lunchtime and see if they can help me. The one I saw at Staples may have actually been an RCA cable. It listed the plug size at a 3.5MM but I did not know what mine needed.:rolleyes:

    check wallyworld i bought a really nice one cheap there for my cam corder
  6. That was kind of what I figured as well. It is just a matter of finding the right size plug.
  7. I found one at Radio Shack. There may be other types listed that would work. This one is packaged as a "Y-Adapter Audio Cable" and is for splitting audio between components. We tested it on a TV in the store and it worked fine. It is two phone plugs on one end to one 1/8" stereo phone plug. It cost me about $7.00. Now that I bought one I am sure the original one will show up.:rolleyes:

    Thanks everyone for the input!

    Well, isn't that how it always work...!
    It took me a while to figure out why I had so many duplicate tools. :D Having two sons and of course a Poltergeist in the house didn't help either. :D
  9. Poltergeist! Now there is one I had not considered. Maybe that is it!:D

    hey hook,i know where you're coming from.thought i had a poltergeist once,also,when the contents of my fridge(especially beer) kept disappearing every night :confused:
    forgot my stepson was staying with us at the time :rolleyes:
    but i'm beginning to think the poltergeist theory may have been true,as the mooch moved out in november,but my grub is still diappearing ;)
    but the beer's ok since the wife sterted hiding it in the bedroom closet.poltergeists must not like closets :D
