When I tried using a cable made for camcorders with my phone I got a similar
result.

My best guess is that the camcorder cables have a slightly different connector than the ones used with smart-phones, probably because the phone's video and audio jack is the same so it has to work a little differently.

I did manage to get it working though, by pulling the connector slowly out of the phone's jack and wiggling it a bit I got a clear picture, but doing so you lose one of the audio channels.

Good luck!

i made it work. you can either order the original samsung cable (not a camcorder one but the phone one) or i heard the Nokia CA-75U works too. the nokia one is about 2 here where the samsung is 10..

but fml, it works.

Has the cable ever worked to your knowledge? Have you ever used a different one?

I got one of these:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3704968768...84.m1497.l2649
and it works on CM9, AOKP, CM7 (basically all the ROMs I have flashed)
I got the same results as the OP when I first tried to do TV out but that was with a cable I already owned that came with a camcorder...
Bottom line is it will only work with a cable that is wired for the SGS (like the one I've linked to)

I have got a Nokia TV out cable (from N900) working with Samsung I9000, worked well in stock 2.3.6, CM9 and now Slim 3.7.

No problem for me
Samsung Galaxy Note II (N7105) | Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (N5100)

Make sure your ROM supports TV out.

Cool poor image

Hello,

I am using 3.5 jack sometimes. But, that is not good show. Maybe, hdmi cable is good show.
