    There are three models of PSP, the 10000, 20000, and 30000. The video cable isn't compatible with the first model. Which one do you have?

My psp2000 willnot work on tv

To connect your psp 2000 to a tv, you can use the red, white and blue cable to watch movies on tv. If you are trying to play a game on TV, you must use the HD Component cables(red, white, yellow, green, blue) and hook it up to a progressive scan tv.

I just bought the cables for my PSP 3000 to hook to my tv (the set with the 5 wires) and I have tried hooking it through all of my ports and I do the hold the display button for 5 seconds and the psp goes...

1. Connect your PSP with your PC using the USB cable.
2. Use your PSP interface and hit HOME button, and then go into "Settings". Here you will have to use the directional button to find "USB Connection"
3. Once the connection is made, you will need to check your PCs available drives. You can do this by going into "My Computer". Your PC should detect your PSP as and additional drive. It is not much different from using portable drive or thumb drives actually.

How to plug your psp into the tv

You have to either modify your FAT (PSP-1000) the older larger one, by taking it apart and adding some hardware, which is rather technical.

Or simply by the plug for the SLIM (PSP-2000) and hook it up to your tv via the composite or RCA\S-video plugs. Make sure your TV has these plugs, and get the appropriate cable that will work with your tv! MUST be NTSC.
You can also use a USB cable and plug in the PSP to the PS3.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Psp playing on pc

you must have a psp 2000 or the new 3000 to hook it up to a tv or pc. if you have the original psp, the audio/video cables are not compatable.

the original psp will still connect via wi-fi to the ps3, however this does not work for gaming.... only streaming from your ps3 to your psp will work.

No picture coming out only sounds using component cable for psp

Does your TV have component inputs?

You can only play games with the component (red,green,blue) cable
the composite (red,yellow,white) is only for music and pictures.

make sure you have the proper connections on your tv and theyre hooked up properly.

PSP 6 pin gen 2 cable not working on tv?

you have the wrong cable. the cable you have is for HDTV's only.
by the ports on the TV, you have a standard TV.

The cable's colors are Red, Blue, Green, Red, and White. If you have a HDTV or these ports on the back of the TV, connect them like in the picture.
from what you said, it seems like your TV's port colors are Yellow, Red and White. If you only have these ports on the back (Yellow, red, white), you need this cable:
