    I had the same problem and I bought no AV cords BUT I still can't see the picture. I hear the sound but no picture. I even tried my Monster Cable Cords from the Nintendo Cube but they didn't work at all. What could be the problem with the Video, why the picture will not show?

    I have the same problem, I even bought new cables and it still won't display the video. I also tried it on another T.V. and it still wouldn't work.
    Looks like this console is going in the trash and I'll have to buy another one.

    I fixed my problem temporarily. I connected everything in and then i jiggled the yellow cord around where i connected it. after a while i started to see a picture so i kept jiggling it until i got a clear picture and left it alone without moving it. the only problem was that the slightest movement to the yellow cord's position made the picture go away. and if i disconnected the yellow cord i had to go through the process all over again.

The solution for me was to buy a second hand console from an eBay store, Found that my old console was dead, I suspect it's the connection inside that is at fault. The new console that I bought works perfectly with the old nintendo 64 console cable, So it wasn't the old cable that was at fault.

You will have to buy a new cable... there really isnt a fix for a/v cables. with shipping and handling they are like 6 bucks on ebay... Im sure you can also find them at a local electronics store... maybe not quite as cheap though..... sorry there isnt a fix for this... but this is definately the solution :D ... Good luck :D.... Please rate well! :) if you have anymore questions, feel free to ask!

Gamecube component video cable with samsung

Alright, by the sound of it you are trying to figure out what cable goes where. This is were I do guess work. The white chord is for like your headphone slot, so don't use it. The red is for the picture and the yellow is for the sound. I am not sure as which is picture and which is sound on the samsung but as I said, plug in those two chords and if that doesn't work, switch them. Hope this helps.

My ps3 stopped working and i use an HDMI chord, i tried holding down the button for 10 seconds then turning it on and still nothing shows up. I checked the chord and it works. Should i plug in the red,...

I think you may be holding the power button down for too long. Instead of holding it down for 10 seconds only hold it down until you hear a second beep (it will beep once as soon as you press it). The console should stay on after the second beep and the display should initialise.

Try this method with both HDMI and AV lead (red white and yellow lead)

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

No sound

check if the A/V chords are firmly in place. (The yellow, white and red plugs). If it is firmly in place, and the sound still does not come out, the problem is that there is a loose chord. Try slightly bending the chord while testing if there's sound. This way, you'll know if it really is the chords that have a problem... hope this helps!

N64 turns on but nothing shows up on the TV

I have the same problem and from what I've read elsewhere on the net, it seems to be easily amendable by one of two solutions.

- You can re-tune a channel on your TV (not one of the main ones) and it will find the frequency for your N64 to run on

- If you had a gamecube the yellow, red and white output cables that came with that are (apparently) compatible with both the N64 and SNES and that way you wont have to tune your TV.

Unfortunately for me, I did not have a GC and my TV will not re-tune due to the button on the controller not working! Good luck.

My ps2 isnt getting on line....what can i do?

if you are not using a 10 base T or 100 base TX chord you wont be able to get online, buy one from Walmart or Target or somewhere for like 10 $ depending on the length. Just ask for a chord to get online. Most likely the end of the chord where you plug it in is bent or tangled ( wires ) or you are using the wrong chord.

Still won't work

Have you tried using someone else's recharge chord? I'm thinking that your chord may be broken which is why it won't charge or turn on. If you are using someone else's chord and you know that it works but your DS still won't turn on, there is something wrong with the port which you can't really fix. If you still have your warrenty I would send it back.
