Olevia 432 S-12 Component Shows no signal with cables plugged in.

I just recently got some component cables for my ps2 and plugged them into my Olevia 432 S-12 and It's telling me that there is no signal. I tried before with my friends xbox 360 a while back and couldn't get it to work and thought maybe it were the cables but now that I have my own, it still doesn't seem to work. I'm wondering if maybe my TV is a faulty unit or if there is anything i can do to either fix it myself or firmware i could upgrade to maybe fix the situation.
It came as a refurbished unit off of a website that had a crazy deal on the TV and it works fine otherwise, HDMI and all other things seem to work. I haven't had any problems with this TV besides the component situation. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I don't think s-video would not work, since it uses the RCA slots plus just the s-video slot. I'm more interested in actually getting the component to work for when I obtain a PS3 so that I'm not stuck with dirty quality graphics due to the TV lol.

    Thanks for the help though, is there anything else that might be causing the component to not be working anyone?

I have an RCA Remote that turns on Olevia tv but won't find a signal and neither does the tv remote. I'm on cable.

perhaps you need to set it on channel 3 for the cable to work .. the cable box must be on when doing any searching also

What channel do I need to go on to play my playstation 2 on a Toshiba REGZA television?

The channel can be either Aux if you use the Yellow, Red, White(composite) those are what the PS2 came stock. If you Used the RF modulator to hook it up using coaxil cable then its channel 3 or 4 depending which you have it set and If you bought the component cable(so you can take advantage of 480p for the dvd player) then it will be the channel labeled component. Just a note if you do use the last cable(component) I mentioned you will not be to play Playstation 1 (PS2 backwords compatible) games because they are not able to be viewed in 480p.

Component input

If you are only getting a black and whiite image, that means you're only getting the luminance portion of the signal through your cables. You either have the Xbox connected wrong, or you have bad cables.

How to hook up a game console to an Olevia 232-T12

It all depends on your game console.

You can connect most to the Component, Composite, or HDMI inputs.

For modern consoles, use HDMI cables or provided Composite cables.

HDMI = Single cable and single plug (Best)
Component = Red, Green, Blue, Red, and White plugs (Average)
Composite = Yellow, Red, and White plugs (Worst, used for most older consoles and older TVs)

My Olevia Model 427-S11 shows "no signal"

Silly suggestion, but did you hit the "Source" button again a few times?

According to the manual, the "Source" button changes between the following long list of options:
Tuner, Composite, S-Video, Component, HDMI, VGA, and VGA component.
So you'll have to hit it 6 more times to come back to what you were using.

Olevia went out of business in 2008, so their website is defunct. Here is a link to what I believe is your manual on another website.

I have an Olevia 23t lct hd tv. I am plugged in

you said you are using composite cables..? that means you have some kind of cable box ? if you want to get HD channels you have to use a HD box that is supplied by the cable company.. the HD cable box then has to connect to the tv with component cables (green,blue, red cables) or HDMI cable.. to send the HD signal to the television.

My componet/av only shows black and white on my vizio vp422

The 37" Vizio I just bought has a very confusing feature where the same input can be used as either the Y channel of the component or the full video channel for composite. If you plug a component source into the TV and then select the composite input ("AV" on the remote), you will see a black and white version of the full component signal (makes sense as the Y channel is just the luminance component). As sad as it is, I was stumped by this for a while until I happened to hit "COMP" and got full color. FWIW, the manual warns about this, but it really doesn't emphasize the point. I wonder how many returns they get because of this.

Connecting Sony PS2 to Panasonic HT32LZD85

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.

Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).

If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.

Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

Panasonic plasma will not display signal

Ous worked a little odd like that also. Even the part about the pip. Try to hook the ps2 through the cable box which then connects to the tv. This worked for our dvd and wii. Hope it works.
