This is not a common problem. Make sure your camera is in VCR mode, that the cables are OK, and that you are connecting to the video and audio OUT on the TV.

I don't have my camera here, but there's a menu setting which affects this as well, I think it's called "AV-INPUT" or something like that. This must be correctly set or else the ports will be used as outputs instead of inputs.

Also, you can't input copy protected material like commercial DVD's and VHS tapes. You will get an error message saying "copy inhibit" or something to that effect.
