Pentax K30, Connecting to TV

I have a Pentax K30 and want to be able to review my photos on a television. The manual suggests using an optional I -AVC7. Unfortunately, my TV does not have an AV input. Its a modern TV, Samsung UE428000D or something like that. It has been suggested I use a micro HDMI cable on another forum which I ordered and it does not fit. Can anyone please help?

Unfortunately, the K-30 does not have an HDMI connection. If your camera came with a cable, it has the one connector that plugs in to the camera, and the other end has two plugs, yellow and white. On the back / left side of your TV should be a block of labeled AV IN. The yellow plug from the camera should connect to the far right plug labeled Video or Y. The white plug would go to the Audio L (or R) connector on the back left of the TV.

Since your TV is Smart TV, you may be able to plug in via USB and play the files that way. But I don't think it will be real time.

I don't own the K-30, or the TV. This was just from a quick read of the two manuals (for fun).

I hope this helps
