The Sony Handycam CCD-TRV138 camcorder uses Hi8 videotapes to record your home movies. In addition to the built-in liquid crystal display (LCD) screen on the camera you can connect the CCD-TRV138 to your television to review videos recorded with the camera. An A/V cable comes supplied with the camera as it is needed to connect the camera to your television. Watch your movies recorded on the CCD-TRV138 by connecting the camera to your television.
Pull the rubber cover out of the "DC IN" jack located under the battery on the back of the Sony CCD-TRV138. Connect the AC adapter cable to the "DC IN" jack with the arrow on the cable facing up. Plug the square end of the power cord, which does not come connected to the AC adapter, into the power jack on side of the AC adapter opposite the cable and then plug the opposite end of the power cord into a wall outlet. You should use the AC adapter when connecting your camera to a TV to preserve battery life.
Plug the small, round end of the supplied A/V connecting cable into the "A/V OUT" jack on the right side of the camera. The "A/V OUT" jack is found near the lens.
Connect the yellow connector of the A/V cable into a "Video IN" jack on your television and the black connector of the A/V cable into a "Audio IN" jack on your television to finish connecting the camera to your television.
