Re: connecting playstation

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,

Make sure your connections to the TV are in the right place. Sounds like you're using the hi def connections when you should be using the analog connections on the TV

Need help please. Why has my Vizio TV malfunctioned? And what are my options?

It sounds that the T'Con board [Timing Control Board] to your TV is faulty. But before confirming it, just re-seat all the flat cable connections from it to LCD panel. You must have knowledge in electronics to proceed. Otherwise, seek help of any experienced service technician.

Just bought a samsung plasma hd tv. we are able to get satelite w/ sound but once we try to connect to the dvd/ vcr and playstation 2, we are unable to get sound or it shows up in black and white.need step...

Hi,here is my solution...
to listen your TV on your
stereo System
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out "of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic or HDMI connection
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
stereo Receiver..By this means whatever you watch on the TV (TV tuner, satellite , Xbox ..etc.) ,it's sound will come thru your stereo..

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

When I turn our tv on the power light comes on but the screen is still black and there is no sound.

Black Screen - Sometimes, the TV may display a black screen, now you need to check the cables whether they are properly plugged or not. Reconnecting all the cables can also work for this problem. Also, if the screen has a screen saver, check how it's set up. And, if nothing works for this issue, then there is a possibility that the lamp, rear projection, or the LCD panel may have been damaged. Now, you need to check your warranty card of your television and se your set comes under the manufacturer's warranty period. Call the customer service for technical problem and get replaced if a part demands it.

consigning no sound on your TV

You might need to do some troubleshooting tips first before calling arepair man to replace the sound IC inside the TV.

Check the volume setting. It might sound simple, but it's the best place to start. Make sure the television sound is not muted or turned all the way down using the remote or buttons on the front of the television. If the batteries are dead in the remote and the TV is muted or turned down, it might seem like the sound is broken.

Examine cables connected to the TV. Sometimes a loose connection can cause a loss of sound. Ensure all cables are tightly connected to the television and correctly inserted. Some peripherals are connected using a three-plug system and are usually labeled red, white (sometimes black) and yellow. Both the red and white leads are sound cables. Try removing all the cables (except the power) from the back of the television and turning it to TV mode, then listen for static or other sound.

Plug in headphones to the television with all cables re-attached. See if you can hear sound through the headphones. If you can, it may indicate that the TV's internal speakers are not working. If you can't hear anything through the headphones, it may be indicative of a larger problem.

Call a repairman. If at this point everything has failed to produce a sound, it's time to call in the professionals. A qualified technician should be able to fix the problem either at your home or in a workshop.

How can I connect my TV on an audio tuner?

Depending on the make and model, you probably have several options. Check the connection sockets on the back of the TV, and look for one of the following:

1. "Audio Out" may have two RCA plugs labeled L and R, for basic stereo sound. These may be colored red and white, and have corresponding plugs on the back or your audio tuner, labeled "In." Use a red and white plugged audio RCA cable to connect them.

2. Alternately "Audio Out" may have what appears to be a headphone jack. Audio cables are available that have the 3.5mm plug on one end and RCA plugs on the other (called a Y-splitter:1 mini-plug/2 RCA plugs.) The RCA plugs will connect to the back of your audio tuner.

3. "Digital Audio Out Optical" is a conection that uses a fiber optic cable. If you have an optical connection on both the TV and tuner, you can use an optical audio cable to connect them.

If you need to buy an audio cable, they are available at your local electronics store, or online at sites like Amazon, here:

Any one of these options will work. The optical cable solution provides higher quality sound, but is more expensive, and unless you have the proper peripheral equipment (like speakers positioned for surround sound) you might not notice the difference anyway. Good luck!

Proscan 26LB30Q Vs PS2 = HELP

The red white and yellow cables are composite connections. The red/green/blue connections are component connections.

The playstation's composite connections consist of two audio connections- red & white, and a composite yellow video connection. The TV's white connection is the audio, and the red/green/blue are component video. You need an adapter that will connect the one yellow(composite video) to the three red/green/blue (component video) connections

sounds like you are using standard audio/video cables (yellow, blk., wht) in the component conections on either the tv, vcr or dvd player. If you intend on using component connection you will need to use different cables.
