Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

I dug out my old ps1 got everything together and when I start it the screen on the tv remains blue. The television is on the appropriate channel. I can hear the console working inside but can't determine if it isn't reading the disk or if the audio/video output isn't working correctly

The blue screen makes me think that it is on the wrong input. You said channel. If you plug it into the composite inputs then it will be called "video 1" - "video 4" or however many inputs you have. So make sure again its on the correct input, and make sure that the cable you are using is clean. You can clean it using rubbing alcohol or something. Even if that game doesnt work it should have a PS1 loading screen

How do i get my Panasonic ct1388yd to register it's picture and its sound of my game console

The modulator is outputting channel 3 or 4 analog not digital. Channel 3 digital is not channel 3 analog. You have the opposite problem of those trying to receive TV on an older Analog TV. You need to rescan your channels to add the analog input. Assuming you TV still scan for those like mine does.

P.S. - BNC!!! Really?? I only see those on security systems these days.

I have connected my ps one to the television but cant seem to find the channel the visual is one or tune it in please help

  • If you using standard AV cables, (Yellow,White and Red) make sure they are connected to the correct INPUTS in the back of your TV. Now you should be able to switch to VIDEO or INPUT on your TV. Usually there is an INPUT or VIDEO SOURCE button on the remote, or an INPUT or MENU button on the front of the TV.
  • If you are using an RF Adapter, it's a simple matter of connecting it to the CABLE connection in the rear of your TV. Turn on the PS1 and surf to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV you should have a signal now.
Hope this helps, please rate.

if you are sure that you have connected the AV cables properly with your ps1 and the tv, and selected the proper AV channel in your tv, make sure that your ps1 and tv has same video formats, aka PAL or NTSC.

TV does't register the Nintendo

Probably so, if the video cables match up color wise then you should be ok there. Try changing the INPUT / SOURCE on the TV. Look for a button on the remote that says that and try different modes and inputs there. If you can't find that button try going to channel 2 on the TV and then going DOWN in channels with the the channel + - button.

Every TV is different in that regard.

Hope this helps

Connevting to an LCD TV

This will vary by TV model, but some televisions route external signals to a separate video setting, often only reachable through the remote. Try looking for a "video" or "input" or "mode" setting on your remote. On my TV it's a "video" button that toggles from channels to Video1, Video2, Video3 and Svideo, then back to channels.

If that doesn't help you, let me know the exact make and model of your TV and I might be able to find something more specific.
