Hello

I think that you should have a button on the remote which lets you switch to the auxilliary connection of the TV (it won't switch automatically). Try putting it on AV1 AV2 or AUX or such modes you have to refer to your TV manual to see how to switch exactly to the Video Line in Connection.

This should solve your problem :)

Cheers :)

Why cant i get my wii console to work in color


Well it might either be the tv or the av cables that is causing the wii system to be in black grey and white then.
Picture Is Black and White or Does Not Appear Situation:
  • The console powers on and shows a black and white image on the television screen
  • The console powers on and there is no image on the television


What to do:
  • Determine whether the Standard AV Cables (packaged with the system) or the Component Cables (sold separately) are being used.

  • AV Cables

    • Ensure the yellow, red, and white cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.

    • If the TV does not have the yellow, red and white inputs, it will most likely have component inputs which allow standard AV cable use. Try these AV hookup steps. (How To)

  • Component Cables

    • Ensure the red, blue and green video cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)

    • Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.


Still Not Resolved:
  • If the television is continues to show a black and white image when powering on the Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv


The 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 cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 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 back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    How to hook up dvdplayer


    Connecting this up will be easy. What you do is get a yourself a set of the right, for your setup, cables. That uses EITHER one of the formats, of these described, below. You will need, either, a THREE way Cable, or three separate " Coaxial Cored" Cables with RCA PLUGS on them. ColoredYellow, (Video) Red, & White. (Audio) AV. OR If you have SCARTConnection Sockets, it's a big Black Socket at rear of unit(s), you get aSCART Cable.& It's all inside. Now some units, use a standard calledComponent Video, that uses, a Green, Red, & Blue Plugs. Now, with the Component setup, you will also ,need, Two more Cables, for the AV Audio. these are, Red & White.(So with Component Video there are 5 Cables/Plugs in all). In any event ALL Cables go Color to Color, at each end, plugging into the corresponding Colored RCA Jacks, on either machine, or VCR or TV. Now if you have SCART, then it simply plugs in only one way. It is that simple. So connect up with the leads your set uses, and select the correct "Input" from TV/Remote, it is NOT on a "Channel" it will be on AV, AUX, and Press "Play" on VCR/DVD whatever.... should be all go.

    Origiannly had my son's PS# hooked up to our HD TV


    You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION®3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION®3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

    Adjust the system's video output settings. Select the best output settings for the TV in use.

    1. Check the resolution supported by your TV.
    Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the TV type. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the TV.

    2. Select (Display Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu.

    3. Select [Video Output Settings].

    4. Select the connector type on your TV.
    Resolution (video mode) varies depending on the type of connector used.

    Input connector on the TV Supported video modes (NTSC region) *1 Supported video modes (PAL region) *1
    HDMI 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p
    Component / D-Terminal *2 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i 1080p / 1080i / 720p / 576p / 576i
    Composite / S Video *3 480i 576i
    AV MULTI / SCART *4 480p / 480i 576p / 576i
    *1 The video mode options vary depending on the region where the PS3™ system was purchased. In North America, Asia and other NTSC regions, 480i video mode is displayed as [Standard (NTSC)]. In Europe and other PAL regions, 576i video mode is displayed as [Standard (PAL)]. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the product.

    *2 D-terminal is a connector type used mainly in Japan. The resolutions supported by D1-D5 are as follows:
    D5: 1080p / 720p / 1080i / 480p / 480i
    D4: 1080i / 720p / 480p / 480i
    D3: 1080i / 480p / 480i
    D2: 480p / 480i
    D1: 480i

    *3 Composite is the connector used to connect the AV cable that is supplied with the PS3™ system. S VIDEO is a format mainly used in Japan.

    *4 AV MULTI is a format mainly used in Japan. SCART is a format mainly used in Europe. If [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected, the screen allowing you to select the type of output signal will be displayed.


    5. Change video output settings.
    Change the resolution for the video output. Depending on the connector type selected in step 4, this screen may not be displayed.

    6. Set the resolution.
    Select all resolutions supported by the TV in use. Video will automatically be output at the highest resolution possible for the content you are playing from among the selected resolutions.*
    * The video resolution is selected in order of priority as follows: 1080p > 1080i > 720p > 480p/576p > Standard (NTSC:480i/PAL:576i).
    If [Composite / S Video] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.
    If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically adjust the resolution (the HDMI device must be turned on). In this case, the screen for selecting resolutions will not be displayed.

    7. Set the TV type.
    Select the type of TV in use. Set when only SD resolution (NTSC:480p / 480i, PAL: 576p / 576i) is to be output such as when [Composite / S Video] or [AV MULTI / SCART] is selected in step 4.

    8. Check your settings.
    Confirm that the image displayed is at the correct resolution for the TV. You can go back to a previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the button.

    9. Save your settings.
    The video output settings are saved on the PS3™ system. You can continue on to set audio output settings. For details on audio output, see (Settings) > (Sound Settings) > [Audio Output Settings] in this guide.

    I need to know how to run my ps3 thru the optical wire to my hdtv


    Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

    You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

    1. Connecting with an AV cable
    2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
    3. Connecting with an Optical Cable


    Connecting with an AV Cable:


    1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
    2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
    3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".




    Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

    HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

    1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
    2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.



    Connecting with an Optical cable:

    You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

    1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
    2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.


    Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

    The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

    PS3 streches off the TV Screen


    Try holding the power button on the ps3 for about 10seconds. It should beep as it normally would turning on, carry on holding the button until it restarts. This should restart the ps3 in standard mode so that it can be viewed via rca/scart connection.

    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.
