There may be a child lock feature on your set but you would not get sound or picture. If you can not get a picture from the video input jacks and the set works fine other wise then this - sounds like a problem with the Video switching circuits inside your television. I would refer this type of repair to a qualified technician.

Trying to hook up xbox 360


You should have 3 wires. 1 is for video and the other 2 are for the audio. The wires should have them labeled. Once plugged into tv. You will need to change the input until you see xbox game. New tv's have multiple input channels. So u may have to try different inputs. Also you need to make sure the the wires are in grouped inputs on the back of the tv. Let me know if u have any questions.

My PS2 is working, but nothing is showing on the tele screen and theres no sound either... is it the cable thats broken?


Unless you can see a clear break in the cable (such as a pet chew mark) then chances are the cable is fine. Make sure that all of the ends are plugged into the correct port and that they are snug in there. Another thing to check is that none of the plug ports are loose or wobbly. Only real other thing you can do is make sure the TV is on the correct input setting. That will be determined by TV and which ports you are using to plug the console in.


Best of luck

There is no sound on the ps2 but i do get perfect picture on the alba tv


Check both sides of the audio/video cable connection. Make sure the red/white cables are plugged in to the proper red/white components on the TV (You may have more than one, and may have plugged the audio in the wrong input). If your TV allows input from separate audio sources, make sure it's set to accept audio from the PS2. You can also make sure the video/audio cable is plugged in fully in the back of the PS2.

With the PS2 Slim, when I start the system there just appears a black screen. No configuration menu or gameplay shows up. Whether a game is in the system or not, the problem persists. I need help.


It sounds like the video/audio input on the console is either not plugged in, the TV isn't set to the right input, or the input is malfunctioning. I'd try making sure all of the connections are plugged in securely on both the system and the TV, and cycling through all of your TV's inputs.

The console turns on but three is sound but not picture


Make sure your a/v cables are hooked up properly, and also make sure your tv is set to whatever video input your using.

If that doesn't work, try different video inputs on your tv and also try a new set of cables.

If after that you still can't get video then the main board inside of the ps2 is bad.

Playstation 3 console not displaying on tv screen


Make sure all the video cable connections are plugged firmly into the back of the PS3
The sound you are hearing indicates that you are on the right track. To get the video to work you will need to select the correct channel on your TV set. Connect the video cables (yellow) to the video INPUT of the AV port of your TV and then change to the AV channel on your TV set to view the picture.

Please let me know if this did not fix your problem

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.

Lcd montior with tv box but no hdmi sound


in some cases certain manufacturers say in the instructions that when using s video with seperate audio, you cannot use the HDMI for the sound and sometimes visa versa, it's just the way the output is set up. Remove the other sound cable you are using for pc or tv and just use HDMI to confirm that the sound is re-enabled on the HDMI

Onkyo TX DS797 no sound from cable TV


Have you made sure the receiver's INPUT SELECTOR is set to "Video 2"? I know it seems like a stupid question, but worth mentioning as many folks would set the receiver on TV, which would not work unless the signal was also plugged into a "TV input" in back of the receiver. If your setting is correct, try running the TV cable sound temporarily into the receiver's DVD input, which we know does work. If you still don't get cable TV sound when the receiver is set to "DVD", then you have a problem with the TV cable audio portion. Most receivers would fail completely, rather than have only one input fail, so my guess is that there is a hookup or switching error somewhere.
