Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

I wanted to know if the PS3 can be hooked up to an AC adapter

It works with the PS2 but I can't get video or audio for the PS3. I have an older TV that doesn't have the red, white, and yellow thing on my tv. Could you please help me.

There is an RF adapter that you can buy if your TV has the port for coax cable or S-Video. Here is a picture of one of the many available RF adapters. Thanks!

My screen is broken but I want to play xbox can i hook up a older TV to the broken screen your TV and play xbox through the broken TV but using the screen of the old TV to play


You'd be much better off just hooking up to the older TV directly instead of trying to run an input on the broken TV and then direct the output through another TV.

You can always find cheap video adapters to connect to the older TV if needed.

Mitsubishi rear projection tv, model WS-48311 - Lost audio after moving tv and re-hooking up cables. How do I get it back?


It sounds like this TV is being used only for the PS3. We'll need to troubleshoot this through a process of elimination.

If you're using Component Input 1 and audio, try using Component Input 2 and audio instead. If this set of inputs provides working audio and video - you can stop. Or, try going back to Input 1 once more. If Input 1 now works - you may have simply made a better connection. If it doesn't - then there's probably an issue with input 1 on the TV.

If moving to Input 2 above still didn't solve the problem, you should try using a different set of audio cables between the HDFury and the TV. If it now works, the original audio cables are faulty.

You can check the HDfury setup on another HDTV with component inputs with it connected to an HDMI cable. if the HDFury wors, you know the device and all the cables work. If you do this test and it works with your PS3, then you know that the PS3 is providing good video and audio signals via HDMI. If the problem follows the PS3 - then it's the PS3 at fault. If everything works perfectly on the second TV, then there is some issue with the audio amplifier / inputs / speakers of the Mitsu TV. You could get a cheapo stereo amp and speakers - or a set of computer speakers for audio - it all depends on how much you want to spend for sound.

Good lcuk!

How can I hook up my PS3 to an Emerson TV? There is not a place in the back for the jacks to plug in to. Just a place for an antenna. Model: EWT 19B3, AC 120V 60Hz 72w.


This is an older television. You need an converter box. These are generally called RF modulators and take composite video (3 RCA plugs - 1 video and 2 audio) to coax. If you want to use component video out from your PS3, you may need a component to composite video converter as well. For an example, see http://www.svideo.com/ypbpr2svideo.html. Unfortunately, you will get signal loss with the conversion.

I hope this helps.

(Walmart and RadioShack have carried RF modulators in the past. RadioShack probably still does.)

PS3 not giving a picture or display (not even getting audio), worked fine yesterday (3/5).. have tried an older PS2 with the TV (it is not the TV)... any ideas?

You may just need to reset the video on the system. The link below will help you do this by putting the system into recovery mode.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Can you connect the ps3 to a regular tv


There are RCA outputs on the PS3 that will allow you to connect to an older non HD TV. If you do not have RCA (that is the yellow, red and white cables used for video and audio) inputs on your TV, you will need an adapter (most likely a coaxial to RCA adapter found at radio shack, walmart, target, etc.).

Hope this helps,

No color for ps2


Check the AV wires. I've pulled a mistake before where I plugged the Video wire into one port (say AV2) and the audio into (say AV3). Drove myself nuts trying to figure out what was happening (video but no audio on AV2, and audio but no video on AV3). Eventually I fixed it and it worked.

Make sure the wires are in the right AV ports. If that's not the problem, then it's probably an issue with the TV. If that's the case, hook up a GameCube or a similar console (provided you have one) in the same ports as the PS2. If it does the same thing as the PS2, then it's probably the TV's fault. If it works fine it's most likely the PS2's fault.

Connecting Sony PS2 to Panasonic HT32LZD85


First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.

Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).

If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.

Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

No video - blue screen...


since you bought this console used, it maybe set to HDMI 1080p/ 1080i/720p output(by the original owner) and if your TV does not support this there will be no picture, the only way to lower the output resoloution is to get into the options menu but to do that you will need a freind with a tv that supports whatever resoloution its been set too.

try to trouble shoot if the wire is the problem, how? remove the 3 colored wires from the tv and ps2 then try to use the red color instead of yellow to the video from tv and ps2 (both red) temporarily do not use the yellow color. once a picture appears use now the white for the audio (both white) for left audio once there is a sound you may try the yellow for the right audio. i hope this will help you and hear a positve reply from you.
