    Why this cable doesn't work?

    Hello all,


    This is my first post on this forum but I 've been followin us...

    I have a Captivate and I worried because I haven't get to plug it on my TV, I thought that it needs a special RCA cable because I tried with all my RCA cables and didn't work...so i bought one from here but I discovered that it doesn't work neither....

    So the question is....It is the wrong cable or it is my phone broken?


    Thank you very much

    PD: i've select the correct external channel on TV and changed the settings on the phone tv-out etc...

    Sorry I didn't see this before, but are you running a custom ROM? If so, is it an i9000 base ROM? The i9000 ROM's are known for not supporting NTSC out through the headphone jack. Since the International spec GT-i9000 isn't offered in the US, it's restricted to PAL video output that none of the TV's sold in the US will recognize.

    Ahh... so you actually want to use PAL. Well, the i9000 kernels out for the captivate might have been reoriented to use NTSC. Are you certain you're using a compatible cable? Some 3.5 RCA adapter cables don't work... I can't remember if it's the Nokia style or the Apple style that works. I believe its the Nokia style.

    The reason some cables don't work is because the jack connectors are wired differently with different OEM's.
