Good day,
i am eltoyosi and am here to help you.
the first question i will ask you is this.....does your TV set have an av-output?
if it does then make sure you plug the AV cords from the game in the following manner...........
the yellow cord is for picture display and make sure it goes into the yellow cord on your TV set.
the red and white cords are both for sounds of the left and right speakers on your TV set. try this connection and you are set to have fun with your game,

I dont have extra hdmi connections so i use av multi with the red/blue/green(no red/white on cable) conections with an optical cable- which will not play sound. What am i missing?

I honestly thought it would have the white red and yellow as well. If it does try plugging in the yellow along with the ones you already have. If not then try plugging the green into the yellow hole.

Conecting Wii to a Phillips lcd tv. rwy cords. but the picture is in black & white ?? i have sound. tried different connections eg: red to green conections & the only one that works is still black...

it sounds like you may be trying to plug a standard composit video cable (yellow) into a component video input (red, green, and blue)
these are actually two different connections. Most LCD tv's will have both options (sometimes there in weird different spots on the tv tho) if you don't have a standard RGB (red, white, and yellow composite video input) then you may need to purchase a component cable either at a local store or you can get one for $5 on Ebay
hope it helps!
~good luck!

No sound on tv and black & white

The red, blue, and green are the component cable hookups. What you have w/ red, white, and yellow is called composite or on most TV's (AV) See if the TV has a side port for like a camcorder, etc. It will not work by hooking into the red/blue/green as they are different signals.

It is possible that your yellow jack may be separate from the red/white audio left/right jacks.

I have a fujitsu 42" pds4229e-b and trying to set my wii up on it but when useing the video component conections i can only get a black & white picture and no sound any ideas?? i don't have a remote at...

Have you got component cables specially for the wii? if so, then the screen should work fine.

As for audio. You'll need to use separate RCA's Red and white into the audio input if your using external speakers, if your using a surround sound amp then put them into the input there.

Conection wires from psp to tv

If you're looking for the cables used to connect your PSP to your TV, you can find them here:

Look for either the PSPgo or PSP-3000 AV Cables. If your TV has Red, Green and Blue inputs, use the Component cables, otherwise just use the standard AV cables that come in Yellow, Red and White.

Hi. I have an old RCA tv, model # T09081bc. I was hoping to hook up my Playstation 2, but the best result I've gotten was a black screen. I have two different cables for it, one that plugs into the cable...

After you plug the Yellow (video),Red (audio 1) and White if Stero (audio 2) turn the Playstaion on, now turn to chanel 3. does it work? if not look for selector on TV (video input,aux) or use up-dn chanels until you get playstation screen.You can also plug the round antenna cable from TV to unit and set TV to 3 or 4.Good Luck.

I assume you have nowhere to connect the red cable.

This is ok. The A/V outlets on your TV only has 2 ports. It's ok to plug the yellow and the white and leave the red.
