    3.5mm jack to RCA cables?

    Ok, so i bought a 3.5 mm jack to RCA audio/video cables. My plan is to hook them into the back of my Kenwood 7inch screen in my car so i can listen to pandora. I haven't gotten around to it yet, but when I hook it into my AV inputs in my TV, i get no video and also no audio. Anybody have any answers for me?

    There is definitely no Video carried on the 3.5 mm jack No way no how.

    You should be able to hook up a 3.5mm y cable with a red and white rca only and get the audio results you are looking for in your vehicle though.

    The TV is your problem. It probably doesn't accept audio if there is no video. Or the volume isn't on or something.

    Whatever the problem is, it's not the phone.

    As posted above you cant feed video through a 3.5mm jack, that is for audio only. If Martin is correct on the no official video out so far, i can tell you Audio should work through that method, however, no problem.

    The 3.5mm to Composite A/V is usually used by camcorders and the like. No support for them on the droid. The audio probably isn't working because the signal for the video means they need to re-route the audio signal in a different way, so the plugs are most likely soldered to different contact points. Buy a 3.5mm to L/R RCA Audio adapter like one of these:
    HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more!

    Nothing from the 3.5mm jack... that I know of.
    Who knows if something comes up via bluetooth or thru the micro usb, like a projector?
