I have the AV cable connected to the tv and my ps3 and i select the right input but nothing shows on my tv. It worked before but now it doesn't work. Do I need a new cable or to just blow out some of the dust in my ps3? I tested the AV cable with a volt meter and it seemed to be working fine. What is the problem?

Some newer TVs do not have the traditional "yellow" video input, known as an "AV" connection. Even without that input, you should be able to use the standard three-color Wii AV Cable that came with the system.
What to Do:
Look for "component" inputs on your TV. These connections have a row of five differently-colored inputs (green, blue, and red for video, white and red for audio). If you have more than one set of component inputs, it's the first set that generally works with standard AV cables. Look for a set that has a green input with yellow around it, or the word "video" just above or below it.
Plug the yellow end of the Wii A/V cable into this green "Y" input. Plug the white end into the audio "L" and the red into the audio "R." Leave the blue and second red holes open.
Turn on your Wii console and set your television to the input select being used.
If you are seeing the image from the Wii in black and white, try the following to get the image in color:
Cycle through your television's input channels (usually with the "Input Select" or "Source" button on your TV's remote control) to find the input select that has the image in color.
If you're only finding the image in black and white, you may need to switch the setting of the input select from a component signal to a standard AV signal. This can be done by:
An on screen menu option. This is often accessed by using the "Menu" button on the remote.
A button on the remote that switches between the standard and component signals. These can be labeled such things as "AV" or "Video."
It is likely that the problem is your AV cable. This cable has one plug that connects to your Playstation 3 and a red plug, a white plug, and a yellow plug that connects to your television.
Follow these steps to get your PS3 up and running again
Unplug your AV cable from your PS3 and T.V.
Plug in your AV cable to your PS3 and T.V.
When plugging your AV cable back into the T.V. make sure that the red plug is in the red socket, the yellow plug is in the yellow socket and the white plug is in the white socket.
If problems persist try using a different AV cable.
Which generation playstation are you referring to The PS2 or PS3. The PS2 would be connected with a composite cable by default i.e red white and yellow cable. Connect the cable to the corresponding input on the TV, match color codes. Switch to correct input by using your remote controller. Press the AV button and a list of inputs come's up.Select av1 or av2 and check if you get a picture. If you use a ps3 then same as before press AV button on remote and select appropriate option on screen HDMI,Component or Composite.
It is a known problem with some high def connectors not working properly. The following should be checked before concluding there is a problem 1. Ensure you have your TV tuned to the right output station for as your ps3 is connected.(for example you cannot have your ps3 connected to the second set of av ports on your tv and your tv is on av1, it has to be on av2) 2. Cross-check the functionality of your ps3 using the default av cables that come with it so as to know if your cable or console is faulty. 3. Ensure that you high-def cables are properly connected. If all the above prove abortive, you have to see a repairer to check-up your ps3 or tv
PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports
both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as
HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input.
Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and
high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality
out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option
is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV
Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the
opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white"
and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the
Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
Select the "AV" video display mode.
Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
So you are using this cable to connect to the TV? On this cable is there only a red, yellow & white connector? This is known as an S-Video or AV cable.
Can you make sure you are connecting it in the right part of your TV. Once connecting it you will need to select the AV input on your TV or you may need to tune the TV into that input (depending on your TV age/model)
The best connection for the PS3 would be the HDMI cable which is one lead with one connector at either end (though this is for HD TVs only)
As you already checked PS3 and HDMI cable, select HDMI input in TV and connect PS3 via HDMI cable. TV should show PS3 picture. And if still no joy then HDMI input port in TV is bad and need to replace input board/ main board.
Make sure all the video cable connections are plugged firmly into the back of the PS3 The sound you are hearing indicates that you are on the right track. To get the video to work you will need to select the correct channel on your TV set. Connect the video cables (yellow) to the video INPUT of the AV port of your TV and then change to the AV channel on your TV set to view the picture.
Please let me know if this did not fix your problem Cheers John
if you have a SD TV. ( standard display, not HD ) but chose the HD display option on system settings you wont see picture but hear sound. and same goes if you've chosen SD display but own a HD TV. so try to reset your system somehow or take it in for inspection.
