Is there anyway to connect the Apple IIc to a CRT TV, a Flat Screen TV or a Flat Panel Monitor. I have tried using an RCA cable many ways and can't get a single on any of the TVs or Monitors.

Thanks.

Max,

Do you have a IIc Video Accessory Set?

That is for connecting to a CRT/TV.

There is one listed on eBay right now:

There are also Adapters for connecting to VGA/Flat Screen units.

You could use the IIc's composite output. My Sony LCD TV has a composite input but if this is not available, you could get a composite to HDMI or composite to VGA converter, depending on which input(s) is/are available on your Monitor/TV.

Is it not just a composite output??

I tried different solutions, but I can really recommend the Apple IIc VGA from A2Heaven. Connects to the monitor output of the Apple IIc and displays also colors perfectly.

It is often sold out, but Plamen produces always more - you have to look at the page regularly because a lot of people want to have it and if there is a new load they sold out fast again.

If you have tried composite on a variety of TVs and monitors, I begin to suspect the IIc. Are you at least getting a beep? I've used several different TVs, monitors, and vga adapters. They vary in quality for sure! But they all displayed something.

Yeah, this. There's nothing particularly special about the IIc's composite output; your mileage will definitely vary in terms of quality (IE, the 80 column text modes might be hard to read and/or you might have problems with color accuracy with some sets) but it should produce an image on any standard composite input.

Honestly the only possibility I can think of is if the OP has an NTSC IIc and has only tried sets that accept PAL, or vice-versa, but that seems unlikely. Sounds suspiciously like the system is broken.
