There are two cables which help you to connect both devices. Let’s take look at them one by one.

With the RCA cable.

Step 1: Get the RCA cable

We take RCA cable (Check price out on Amazon). One end is a 3.5 mm audio jack and another end has two RCA males.

Step 2: Camera and RCA cable

Connect the 3.5 mm audio jack at the audio port of the camera. Which is available for the headphones. But here we use that port for our purpose.

Step 3: Projector and RCA cable

Connect the RCA male to the projector. But before that figure out the colour of your RCA male cable and the port available in the projector. Put the RCA male cable according to the colour port available.

Step 4: Power UP

Turn on both of your devices.

With the Mini HDMI to HDMI cable.

Step 1: We take the cable.

Here we take the HDMI cable which both ends. Not like a normal HDMI cable which has the same size of the head. One end has a normal HDMI head. Another will have a small HDMI head. This HDMI cable is called Mini HDMI to HDMI cable (Check out the price on Amazon).

Step 2: Camera and HDMI cable.

If you have a projector that doesn’t have an HDMI port available in the backside of the projector. So in this case you will need the HDMI to VGA Adapter (Check out the price on Amazon). HDMI female and VGA male.

Until Step 2: Camera and HDMI cable. The process will be the same. But after that, you don’t have to put the HDMI cable directly in the HDMI port of the projector.

Before that use the HDMI to VGA adapter. And connect the normal head HDMI cable in the HDMI female of the adapter. And then connect the VGA male at the VGA port of the projector.

This extra step only if you have a VGA port at the backside of the projector.

Then you can also power up the transmitter with the power adapter of your smartphone.

What if the transmitter and receiver don’t connect automatically?

If you power up all your devices. And still, the transmitter and receiver do not connect. Then unplug the transmitter USB cable. And press the power button until the light blinks. Then again connect the USB cable with the transmitter.
