If you want to display the images saved on your digital camera but the LCD screen on the back of the camera is too small to view, it is possible to hook up the digital camera to your television. Depending on the type of computer you have, there are two different methods of performing this action. The first is directly through a USB connection (many new televisions now come with a USB port) or through a USB cable adaptor.

  1. 1

    Look at the back of your television to see if you have a USB port. This USB port looks just like it does on your computer and it has a trident icon printed next to it.

  2. 2

    Insert the USB data cable into the USB port on your digital camera.

  3. 3

    Plug the USB cable into the USB end of the USB-to-RCA cable adaptor (if there is no USB port on the television).

  4. 4

    Insert either the USB cable into the USB port on the TV, or the RCA end of the adaptor into the yellow "Video In" port on the TV.

  5. 5

    Power on the digital camera and the television. Push "Input" on the TV and select either "USB" or "Video." The digital camera's contents should appear on the screen.
