    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)

double check all your cords and that they are hooked up tightly and correctly.

if that fails try hooking it up using the AUX (yellow,white,red) cord. It could have been reset which means if you were using a HDMI output it was set back to default AUX.

and finally try using a different HDMI cord, everything goes bad eventually

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.

How do you hook up ps3 to tv


What you need to do is make sure that your cables are indeed in the correct spot. Also make sure that your TV is turned to the correct channel. If you are connecting via Red, White, Yellow cables then you need to make sure your TV is turned to the video input. Also an FYI if you have cable that can interfere with your PS3 so to be safe make sure that your cable box is turned off.

No Picture, Only sound


You need to tell the PS3 that you are now using the new video method. It is still trying to output video on the yellow cable, not the component. If you go to settings>video and tell it to use component, and then switch the cables real quick, it should work.

An easier solution is to do a backup from the system menu, then a "restore" (quick restore is fine), and then power it off, hook up the new cable, and it will detect the video method when it turns on for the "first" time (since the restore).

You do have component input on your TV, and that is the input you are on when you are trying this, yes?

Trying to get ps2 to play on new tv..


USE a VCR between the PS2 and the Sylvania TV.  Hook the PS2 A/V cable RCA connectors( Red, Yellow, White) to one of the the Video input RCA connectors( Yellow, Red, White) on the VCR. Hook the VCR Cable output to your Sylvania Cable input. Set the Sylvania Tv to channel 3 or 4.  Set the VCR channel to Line 1 or Line 2.  This should work. I hope it helps you.
