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.
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.
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.
i would run composite video (yellow, white, red ) cables just find the jacks labeled "output" on the dvd or vcr match the colors to the jacks labeled "input" on the tv. once hooked up, push tv/video or input on the tv remote to flip to the correct input you plugged the device in to.
If you are using the original component cable that has the Red, White and Yellow you need to purchase a Wii Component Video Cable.This cable is compatible and will solve your problem it will have a Red,White - Red, Green, Blue that will match the component Cable input on the back of your T240 HD Monitor.
I need to know how you have your TV hooked up through the cable for ex. hdmi or the green blue red white and yellow cables that plug into the back if its not doing it through the ps3 or anything else means its not the TV its either a faulty cable box or the wires are bad or hooked up wrong going to the tv.. i would first check make sure all the colors are in the right color slots if thats how you have it hooked up and if thats all right then just email me back through the fixya website i am on every hr id be happy to further help you, and if you can please give me a rating it would be greatly appreciated...
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.
