I am not aware of any TVs that have a "scart socket", however you are most likely refering to the DVI connection. See the link below.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

This a type of HD connection that is normally used with computer but because a lot of people like connecting their computer to HD TVs this has become a common connection.

To answer your questions no you do not need a new TV. Mainly you need a TV that has your RCA input for audio and video which will work fine. Note my TV that sets on my work bench is over 10 years old and it works fine. Granted it is a 13" TV so I do not do alot of game play on it as it is too small.

Let me know if you have any more problems and/or questions.

I get no picture on the tv when i turn the ps3 on. i have tried changing scart leads and scart sockets in the tv with no luck.


put your old av cables in you got with the ps3. turn system off, turn it back on using the button on the console not the control but hold the button down until you hear it beep once, keep holding it down until you hear a second beep, this will reset the ps3 back to the av outputs. you can change it to scart afterwards in the video menu settings

Where do i plug the different leads in the back of my tv i havn,t got a yellow port for the yellow connecter


What sort of tv do you have, is it new? If its new it may well have an Hdmi connection which gives you the sweetest graphics....
If your tv is older you probs have a scart connection, the yellow lead carries the video signal, some tv's have three little socket that the red yellow and white leads plug into if you cant find anywhere to plug it in you will need one of these , a scart adaptor

PS3 hdmi connection


With your PS3 on standby (red light) hold the on/off button down until it goes green and then back to red. This restores your PS3 to "factory settings", i.e. it is waiting for you to tell it how you want it to connect to your TV. Now disconnect any HDMI cables you may be trying to use and connect your PS3 to your TV via a scart connection. Now switch your PS3 on and turn to your AV channel and you should have both sound and pictures.
