Playstation 3 not working with older model Pioneer AV receiver

I have an older-model Pioneer AV receiver, bought in 2003. It is, i believe, this model: c. My question is this: i'm attempting to hook up a Playstation 3 through this receiver, using the component input on the back, and it simply will not show a picture. Using a standard dvd player, or my TiVo, it works fine, but PS3 will not show up. Is this model capable of accepting a PS3?

If you have set the component output on the ps3 for high def,ie 720p or 1080i and do not get a picture it sounds like the component input is not high def enabled on your amp,change the setting on ps3 to standard 576 output,or put picture into tv then sound into amp if you want to run 720p or 1080i.

Hope this helps.

You have a tape monitor button switched on. Release it, but turn the volume to zero first! For more information, or should you have any further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

All sound should go directly from its origin to the sound systm. All video should go directly from the source to the TV if it has enough inputs. NO signal ever benefits from unnecessary routing and cabling to or through a device that neither uses nor improves it.

OVERLOAD Message followed by receiver shutting down.


The First step in this would be to Check the Ohms Limit in the Manual and Compair to the Ohms on the Speakers that you are running and the Ones that came with it. Usually when you By the "Kit" the Speakers are Factory Matched with the Reciever. Let me Know!

Hooking up Playstation 2


first, run your playstation 2's video and audio outputs to the inputs of the receiver. Choose whatever source you want, for example, DVD, VCR, or Video 1, 2, or 3.

Then, run the Monitor Out output on the receiver into your Video Input on your television.

Whatever source you hooked your PS2 as (ie DVD, VCR), select that source on the receiver. You should hear sound at this point.

Then select the video input on the TV that you hooked the receiver to. You should see video.

This will allow you to use the receiver as a switcher for both audio and video.

HELP Blu-Ray to Pioneer DVD Suround System connection


The receiver that came with your speakers should have a digital input for a dolby digital source. On the back of the receiver it's probably labled "digital coax" or it could be an optical as well.
Your new Blu-Ray has these outputs on the back. it's as simple as getting the correct cable and selecting that input on the receiver.
To make sure you get the right cable, look at the back of the receiver, and the blu-ray. Look for the digital input on the receiver, and get a cable that matches that. It's either a single RCA cable, or an optical.

So when done, you will have the HDMI or Component out from the Blu-Ray going to the TV, and the digital audio going to the receiver. To hear the sound through the receiver, just go to that input on the receiver.
