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

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.
