    I have this tv too. The problem you have is that the T240HD does not have a composite input. The input you are using is actually a component input. The only way to hook a ps2 up to your tv is to buy a component cable. You can find these at gaming stores. (Regular component cables will not work)

How do you have it hooked up? RCA cables, HDMI, DVI, etc...
If you're using RCA cables (usually red, yellow, and white) check and make sure that the audio cables (red and white) are plugged into the correct sockets with corresponding colors. If you have properly connected the cables and your issue persists, then you might have faulty wires (might have a pinch which could have broken the wire through the inside) try again with different wires and see if it works. if it still doesn't work try pluging your RCA cables on different sockets (TVs usually have more than one component sockets)...make sure your red and white wires are on the same component # as the yellow wire.

I just hooked up my Flat TV to my Panasonic VHS-DVD recorder player and the screen only shows blurry Black and White when displaying or recording, The TV itself is fine.

Sounds as if you hooked up your player wrong. If you are using a composite hook up. You should have a yellow, red and white cable. Make sure it gets hooked into the same on the TV. If it is a component connection, then RED, Green and Blue. It sounds like you have your Yellow composite going through your Green component. If by chance your TV is a new Sony, then you might have to go into the user menu and turn component off and composite on.

We just bought a new 32" panasonic led tv. Hooked everything up and works fine with normal television broadcast. However, we have a Sony DVD/VHS combo hooked up that doesn't perform well. When we play...

If you are using the composite cables (RWY) make sure the red and white are plugged into the audio jacks and NOT the component cable plugs (RGB.) If you have the red audio cable plugged into the red component plug this will cause issues, especially with the sound.

How to hook up video game to my lcd samsung 1080p

on the ps1, connect the cable that has the Red, White, and Yellow connections on one end to the black connection that looks flat (or both ends if you have the model with the Red, White, and Yellow connections on the back of the PS1).
connect the other end (red, white, yellow) to the TV with the same colors, on the same row. Note the input name (video 1,2... or aux 1,2...).

turn on the PS1. On the TV, change to the input name that you just connected the ps1 to.
you should see the ps1 menu.
