    my ps3 connected to most crappy tv's or the brand newer flatscreens all work fine. I got an old, hd projections tv that works for everything else...makes the screen roll a line up and the audio makes a buzzing sound on all inputs, and with all different sound settings...I am not sure what else to try at this point.

    hey guys, i have that problem as well. I have a RCA with three different av inputs but still shows the white distorted line starting from the bottom and moving towards the top. When the line gets to the top, the screen picture will roll over. It first started when i tried to play a ps2 game, now it does it whenever it feels like it. I have noticed that when i switch between inputs, it goes away for a little bit. enough to play for a while. Other than that, im not sure what to do besides sending it in to get it looked at. I also have the sound problem. it seems to be coming thru the tv cable.

How do I get my ps2 to show on screen


Sounds like you have a composite AV cable - at TV end that would be 3 phono leads red/yellow/white. Set the TV audio visual to CMP for composite!

How to connect to tv to tv with component cables


In order to connect an AV receiver to a TV using component cables (Red & White) you will need to connect the component cables to an available AUDIO "OUTPUT" on the TV (red to red and white to white). Then the other end of this same cable will be connected to an available AUDIO "INPUT" on the AV receiver. The TV (via the menu or setup button) may have to be set to where the audio signal is output to a home theater and not to the TV speakers. Once connected, the AV receiver should then be set to the Audio input used in order to listen to what the TV is showing on screen.

I have this TV that is a 2008 samsung but i cant hook up the cable line because i dont have a cable box i only have the coax cable line comming out of the wall in my liveing room, problem being is that...


If you have an older VCR, you can connect the cable to the vcr "in" , then connect the A/Vcables from the video and audio out of the vcr to the A/V on the set and put the set on av1 for source. If you don't have a vcr then you will have to get a box.

After connection my pc to the tv, how do i get my screen on my pc to show on my tv....i pressed f5 and it's not working it keeps restarting my movie on the pc instead of it showing on the tv screen


Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

How do i hook up my dvd player


Hello,

Get the appropriate cord for connecting the DVD player to the TV.

The chord should be three joined together. Its called an AV wire. It has yellow, white and red color at the mouth of the pin.

The yellow is for Video (Visual) while the red and white are for audio (sound).

Since the DVD is to show on the TV, the wire has to be connected as follows:

  1. Insert the yellow wire in to the yellow part of the video out of the DVD.
  2. Insert the white and red wire in to the white and red part respectively to the audio out of the DVD.
  3. Connect the other part of the yellow wire to the input of the TV
  4. Connect the white and red wire to input like wise.
  5. Put on the TV and select to AV from the TV remote and you will see a display of your DVD at the background of the TV.
At this stage you can start watching.

Take care.

How to change from tv to dvd mode


the difference between tv and av, is that av has no showers on the screen. if you change to av you will notice a blue screen, connect your yellow on vedio output and white/ red on audio out of tv
note- before connecting to a vedio touch a tip of your vedio cable some lines will show on your screen, if touch your audio tip harming noise will sound on your tv. if this two happens then you know that your cables are okey. hold your channel button on your tv, channel will start runing after all rf channels finish, tv will go to av.
