Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

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.

How to connect to tv


There are several ways to connect a game console to a TV. The question is, what system are you trying to connect? Some features may be available for the newer generations, that are not on older models. I'm assuming, since you have posted with a picture of a Sony Playstation 3, (PS3) that is the system you are trying to connect. The easiest way to install is to use the supplied (RCA) connection cords that comes with every PS3 system. One side connects to the corresponding port in the back of the system, and the other end has (3) multicolor plugs. They will match the colors on most TV's. Some of the older TV's do not have the RCA ports and will require an adapter to connect this way. These colors are; YELLOW (video out) RED (audio out right channel) and WHITE (audio out left channel or MONO) The PS3 also has and HDMI port, and is much simpler to connect the TV and game console together. As I stated before, not all TV's are equipped with HDMI. HDMI cables carry both the video and the sound through 1 cable. To install this way, simply turn on your TV to the correct aux port, in this case HDMI, then connect the the HDMI cable from the PS3 to an available port on the TV. After you have connected the cords, turn the system on and it will tell you that it has "Detected an HDMI connection. Would you like to use this connection?" Select yes. The rest is automatic.
Also, if you didn't know and are needing a new rca cord to connect to the TV, search for a cord from one of the older systems in the SONY family and they will save you some cash, as they are all exactly the same. PS1, PS2, and PS3 all use the same connection. I hope this helps. Good luck!

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

PS3 surround sound


You will need the optical cable. My receiver only passes video through the hdmi. So I hooked up the HDMI cable to the tv, and the optical cable to the receiver. Once that is done you have to go to the audio settings for the PS3 and chose audio through the optical.

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.

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.

PS2 screen won't show on tv set to game


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.
